Dell Venus 8 wifi not working

The Dell Venus 8 wifi just stop working. I looked on line but do not have any of the updates that would stop it. Any ideas?

Try a couple of things:

1. Remove (delete) the wireless profiles. Now restart and run TCP/IP Reset.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache

Then restart the computer again and make new wireless profiles. Test.

2. Check Power Management on the Wireless NIC (Device Manager) or Windows Advanced Power Management and make certain the card is NOT allowed to be turned off to save power.
