Just fresh installed niresh mojave on a dell inspiron 15 3567 and everything is working smooth but the wifi and ethernet connections. Wifi show on the status bar but says not activated. And the ethernet not working at all and haven’t found none to fix with. Any advice???

 Ethernet: Realtek Semiconductor RLT8101/2/3 Family Fast Ethernet NIC

There's no support for Atheros cards in Mojave and AR9565 model was only poorly supported in previous versions. Replace it with a fully supported card.

For your Ethernet, look for Mieze's driver. Use the forum Search facility.

Thanks in advance. I have done before but nothing happened, the closer I got was just having the wifi symbol on the notification bar but it said (not activated). I don't know if I should erase any kexts from /s/l/e?

Bad idea. Those Atheros cards are hardly supported anyway and certainly not with the vanilla Atheros kext provided in previous OS X/macOS version. You're wasting your time...

 

Unless you really know what you're doing (and I have a feeling you don't), DO NOT start deleting any kexts from /S/L/E!

Not seeing mine in that list, anyways; mine is a DELL Inspiron 15-3567,  Intel Core i3-7100U (2400.0 MHz), 

Atheros/Qualcomm AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter, RealTek Semiconductor RTL8101/2/3 Family Fast Ethernet NIC. Got the ethernet connection working but since the wifi allows me faster connection I'm looking forward to getting it to work. Any ideas?

No don't delete any kexts.  This fix should be placing the Atheros40kext from High Sierra to Library/extensions folder.

 

My TPlink N900 works great with it, the WD4800 also works well with this fix.

Ok thanks a lot!!!! Now, I got the driver installed and it shows as in the images I post here but it doesn’t work. Not even showing in the status bar. What should I do next?

As stated before, the vanilla Atheros40 kext from High Sierra (or any other previous OS X/macOS version to that effect) is useless for AR9565 cards. That card only sort of worked with a specially re-written Atheros kext alternative. Follows the link I previously posted and you'll get the the relevant InasanelyMac thread on the matter. Chunnan's latest kexts are somewhere in the middle of the thread.

 

If you want proper and fully working wireless, replace that AR9565 card by a fully supported card or USB dongle. And that's the end of it. By all means, you may insist on trying to get that AR9565 of yours to work but you'll only waste your time. A few minutes on Google should suffice to prove you the point...

There you are to read and weep...
