After reformatting a Dell XPS 15 9550 I've been struggling to get WiFi working. I am able to turn the WiFi on, but it doesn't detect any access points that I have confirmed are working nearby. After doing some searching online, i've tried to download and install the following in order to get this to work:

Chipset_Driver_HSFY9_Win32_10.1.1.13_A02
Communications_Driver_R3D5X_WN32_1.44.0.0_A00
Dell-Security-Advisory-Update-DSA-2020-059_VMKTD_WIN64_1.0.0.0_A00
Intel-3165-7265-8260-8265-Wi-Fi-driver_9XXNN_WIN_21.70.0.6_A09_03
Killer-Wireless-AC-15335-and-1435-Bluetooth-Driver_V373W_WIN_10.0.0.916_A14_01
DW1820A_1830_WiFi_Win10_x64_1.566.0.2_SETUP_ZPE

 

At this point im worried that the issue is actually a hardware one, and not a software/driver issue.

I am on Windows 10 Home 20H2, build 19042.631

Dbirdsall,

 

Have you checked in Device Manager to see if anything is showing a yellow exclamation point, or if anything is listed as Unknown?
