Hi upheld24,

Try these steps and check if the problem still exists:

1. Change the Advanced card properties. Please check this link to find details about Advanced card properties: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/network/wlan/en/UG_EN/props.htm#toc_70
2. Change the wireless channels in the Advanced card properties to 11 or 6.
3. Disable Bluetooth Collaboration also in Advanced card properties.
4. Update BIOS from (http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/inspiron-15-n5030 using wired connection.
Note: Plug your computer to a good, working UPS before you update the BIOS. If you experience a loss of AC power or a significant voltage sag/spike during the BIOS flash, you will either have to buy a new BIOS chip or buy a new motherboard.

Do reply with results.
