    Connecting to wifi giving me BSOD after upd to 8.1

    After I updated to 8.1 from windows 8, I have not been able to connect to wifi.

    PC can boot as usual, I can see the available wireless, when it comes to the part to key in the SSID password it goes bluescreen on me, with with error KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and no other information.

    I have tried:
    1. Reinstalling the wifi adapter drivers (its the standard Dell 1506 802.11bgn, notebook is Dell Latitude E7440)
    2. getting the latest windows update

    All to no avail.

    Checking in Device Manager shows all devices are installed correctly

    With limited information on the error I have no idea what causes the BSOD. Hoping someone can help decipher the minidump here (not even sure if my minidump is correctly created).

    Anyway, any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi za55y & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Unfortunately, the dump files provided by you have not saved the context record making the WinDBG spit out errors
    Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system :-

    O2FJ2w8x64.sys - this driver hasn't been added to the DRT as of this run. Please search Google/Bing for the driver if additional information is needed.
    wbfcvusbdrv.sys - this driver hasn't been added to the DRT as of this run. Please search Google/Bing for the driver if additional information is needed.

    As you can see, the Dell Airplane Mode Switch Driver is from 2012 and is outdated for Windows 8.1. Please download the latest version dating 2014 from this **LINK**. Make sure everything is updated.

    Furthermore, it appears there is a ""Broadcom Credential Vault USB". I would suggest you to remove this USB Device. Also, since there is no information in the Dump files, I would suggest you to run Driver Verifier using **THIS** Guide. Once you turn it on make sure that you let it crash for few times and then follow the procedures over here for uploading the next Dump Files -

    Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    Also, are you able to connect to any other Wireless Network?

    Let me know how it goes ^_^
