Windows 10 wifi not detecting any networks
Have a E6400 here with Windows 10 and it machinery fine. Is the WiFi changeover on (on the right bank back)?
My constituent has a 1397 Dell WLAN Min Card with a driver from Dell dated 3/14/2012. Check with Dell Assistance.
There are other WiFi devices Dell uses in that model so check with their assistance, on-line drivers, and forums.
If you can’t get the WiFi device to toil it can be disabled and a add-on USB device used which is not expensive. And the device can be swapped out for different models available from Dell or even cheaper on Amazon or eBay.
Some computers have hotkeys or manual switches which could be involved. Also be sure you are not somehow activating Airplane Mode.

Fix network connection issues in Windows 10
Your router would be conjecture here, have you updated its firmware as a possible solution? The router can be the issue even it other OS’s are function fine. And I would keep informed your WiFi drivers on the computers.
Try actually updating your driver :
Control Panel – Network – get in touch with down make and model of Wifi – double click on it – driver’s tab – get in touch with down translation –
click Keep Informed Driver (may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers). Then Right Click on Wifi
Device and UNINSTALL – Reboot – this will refresh the driver stack.
Then check the System/Motherboard Maker’s Locate and that of the actual device maker (such as Intel, RealTek, Broadcom, or Atheros) for even newer drivers.
Manually look at manufacturer’s sites for drivers – and Device Maker’s sites.
Download – SAVE – go to where you put it – Right Click – RUN AS ADMIN.
You can download several at once however reboot after you install each one.
After looking at the Regularity Maker’s you can check Device Maker’s for even
newer versions. (The ones from Regularity maker become your fallbacks).
