    Just checking:

    You downloaded the right driver architecture yeah? (X86 or AMD64)

    If it's the right architecture then maybe head over to the Microsoft Update Catalog and rolling back to an earlier driver. Occasionally the latest doesn't work properly. They currently have 4 different versions available for the AR8161 (including the latest)
    I have run into the same issue. Dell does not support Windows 10 for the 2710 (probably for reasons like this). Unfortunately I believed Microsoft when they told me that Windows 10 works with my computer and did the upgrade before finding out that Dell doesn't support the OS on this machine. As mentioned earlier, Qualcomm has no Windows 10 drivers for any of their hardware. My workaround is to use WiFi on my 2710. Hopefully Qualcomm, Microsoft or Dell will release a new driver. The Microsoft driver 2.1.0.16 is installed on my computer and does not work.

    This is so strange, the ethernet connection works fine on my Dell 2710 , and it is using the Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E , and the driver is the Microsoft provided one dated 4/1/13, Version 2.1.0.16

    2710 success


    I used the windows 10 media creation tool found here Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help

    to install windows 10. Everything went fine, except my card reader ceased working until I installed the 2720 card reader driver. I do get a multimedia control panel error, however everything seems to be working fine. No issues with my comcast internet access. QUALCOMM Atheros ar8161 network drive dated 4.1.13
