    Solved Dell Inspiron 17R laptop wifi 6 upgrade

    Hello Alan, not sure if the modem is wifi 6 or not, sorry missed that nuance. Will check to see if the modem/router is wifi 6. Thanks for the links to the card. I think it is best to access the existing card to confirm size, just to be sure.

    System does not see available wifi

    I believe Mukith82 was correct and the Z87X doesn't have built in wifi, I purchased a WiFi card and installed and I am pleased to announce I now have internet access. Odd that the newer Gigabyte mobo did not have wifi and my older dell did. Thank you flavalee and Mukith82 for your help!

    Have not used bios before, however after reviewing the tabs, in bios, there is no mention of the harddrive. Also during startup the system reports "no bootable drive" and defaults to the bios.
