    Internet connection


    Hi all

    Every time I want to connect to the Internet I have to use "Troubleshoot problems" in "Internet connections". It then says in "Windows Network Diagnostics" "Problem with wireless adapter or access point fixed" (after resetting the wireless network adapter) and the access to the Internet works fine. But in "Windows Network Diagnostics" it also says "Broadcom NetLink (TM) Fast Ethernet adapter" followed by an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle. If I look for driver updates it seems that all drivers are up to date (?). As long as I used Windows 8 above described issues never occurred.

    Thank you very much for your help and support, I wish you a great weekend,

    Beat

    Hey mate,

    You may have to go to the dell website to see if they offer an updated driver specifically for your computer with windows 8.1 32bit.
