Windows 7: How install WiFi driver from another Windows ?

How install WiFi driver from another Windows ?

I'm using Windows 10 64 bit on Dell Inspiron 7110, but my bandwidth is slowdown.
But in Windows 8 the bandwidth is fine, so how could I install the old Wireless driver from Windows 8.

I tried to install driver from the Dell site but Windows 10 isn't compatible for my PC.
- The problem started after the upgrading from windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
- I don't get any error message when I connect to the network.
- And yes I had checked if any of my programs consume my bandwidth and no program is affecting.
- I cant use the method which you suggested because I did a clean install of Windows 10.

I have a copy of "Sys" file of the old driver, I tried to replace them but it didn't work maybe I didn't did it by the right way : athrx.sys and vwifibus.sys, vwifibus.sys and athw8x.sys.
