Dell XPS 14 WiFi Issue vs Me

A few days ago, a good friend of mine decided that I needed a challenge. That was: Fix my ****ing WiFi issue with brand new  Dell XPS 14! Obviously, I did all the basic things. Restart the network card Reconfigure network type (Public, Work, Home) Flush DNS resolve cache  Disable/Enable WiFi card Disable Firewall Uninstall AntiVirus program Reboot the machine Suffice to say, none of these worked! I was stumped! How can a brand new  system from Dell cause this much problems, headaches, tears and grief? So, I went online and looked at forums regarding this issue (in retrospect, should have done that in the first place). Let me tell you was I surprised when I found that not only has this issue been around for some time, but it remained unresolved even on Dell's community forums .  Now, most people would just throw their hands up in the air and say; "I give up!" I am not one of those people. And I hate giving up. In the end, I gave up. Yes, I admit it
