I have a Dell AIO 24 7459 desktop computer, running the latest Windows 10. Occasionally my wifi stops working. There is no internet and I can't select a different signal after that, because the connection list is empty. Only solution is to restart and then everything is solved. Also the settings panel of Windows 10 freezes when this happens. What could causing this?

Go to Dell website look for updated drivers. Also here's a link to stop Windows from updating drivers, I had all kinds issues before I set this up.


Windows 10 Pro, can be done through gpedit.msc
Windows 10 Home, needs to be through the registry, if your comfortable doing this.

I already have the newest driver for the wifi adapter. And I've also done the troubleshooter that Windows 10 has. No issues found.


After wifi turns off and I reconnect again, wifi stays on. It usually happens when I start my computer. Wifi connects and a short while after that, it turns off.

Have you tried turning off or unplugging your router.....sometimes that helps. Sometimes the router itself needs to have a factory reset done.

When you "turn on" your laptop, are you turning it on, or are you just waking it from "sleep" mode?

let us know.

Resetting the router doesn't make sense, because this specific issue doesn't happen with my laptop. It only happens on my desktop, when I cold start it (no sleep mode). After a short while, wifi is down (not disconnected) and I have to go fast to the wifi settings to disconnect it (manually toggle wifi off) and turn it on. Then I have wifi and it will not stop again.

I think I have sorted this out:


1) reset TCP/IP stack and cleared any DNS information
2) Found a newer version of the wifi driver. Not provided by Dell, instead I found it at some website that offered a realtek driver for the Dell wifi card.


Now wifi hasn't been down again.


Tried to find a 5ghz wifi card for my computer. But this is very difficult. Any ideas? For my Asus laptop finding a 5ghz wifi card wasn't a hassle. What card is suitable for the Dell Inspiron 24 7459?

It may well be easier to use a wifi adapter and disable the onboard https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-US...n%3A1037405031

It is indeed easier. But I'm not looking for an easier way to do it. I want to upgrade my computer the way it is originally made possible. It is possible to replace the wifi/bluetooth card, so I'd like to do this.


This is what I have now:

And this is what I've found:


https://www.amazon.de/Intel-Dual-Ban.../dp/B01LCR1SKA


or:


https://www.dustinhome.nl/product/50...reless-ac-9260





How do I know if this is a good alternative? Is it possible to simply swap a m.2 card with a newer one?

Yes, you can replace your wireless card on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...+card&_sacat=0

That wasn't exactly my question...


I was wondering if one of the above mentioned wifi cards can be used in a Dell 24 7459 computer.

Ok. Thanks! Then I'll order the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265.

I thought you already had one? Why would order a Wireless card for another computer when you can order the one designed for Your computer? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...+card&_sacat=0

I started this thread because my wifi suddenly stopped working. I had to disable wifi and then enable it again to make it work. So I got the idea to replace the wifi card with a newer and better one. I could not find any information about doing this with a Dell Inspirion 24 7459 all-in-one desktop.


I figured out what card originally came with this computer. My question was: Am I able to replace this with the cards I mentioned earlier. @spunk.funk: You said: 'If it fits in the motherboard slot, then yes.'


I took the chance and replaced the Dell DW1801 wifi card with a Intel Dual Band-AC 8265 wifi card. And you were right: it works. My wifi is now much more stable and really faster.
