    I'm a bit reluctant to remove the driver on the basis that I'd need to be online for Windows to install it.

    I have no idea whether Windows Update has installed any drivers...... how do you check?

    No driver updates since upgrading to Windows 10. The updates have covered security updates, general for x64-based, Windows Defender (one of which failed to install and so I've re-run and all is OK), updates for Office products and Malicious s/ware removal tool.

    If we're confident that bcmwl63al.sys is the likely culprit, I can sort out an ethernet connection (using a homeplug) and remove the driver.....

    When you remove a driver from device manager and reboot, it'll be installed again. You could however try to see if it helps

    Having uninstalled the driver and then restarted, the driver appears to have been reinstalled. Although Windows states that "This device is working properly." I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. The blue light on the the wireless dongle no longer comes on. Help

    What dongle are you using? Why exactly are you using a dongle?

    I have a Dell Desktop that has wireless connectivity via a small device that plugs into the back of the PC. It has always worked and it is controlled by the Dell driver I uninstalled.

    It only links to the wireless card in the PC. And worked every day until the point I uninstalled the driver
