I have a Dell XPS 13 9343 Laptop onto which I have installed Linux alongside the Windows 8.1 OS it came with. This worked fine first time but last night after I caused a Kernel Panic I decided to reinstall knowing how easy and quick it was.
God was I wrong, now the Wifi will not work and I can't seem to fix it. According to 'lshw' this is the current status of the adapter AFTER installing the proprietary drivers from the System Setting GUI.
