I have suffering from Intel Wireless AC 7260 Adapter reset issues in a Gigabyte P35W v4 running Windows 10 Anniversary Update Edition with latest updates.
Wireless networking will disappear altogether randomly, I usually get a failure at least once a day.
The sequence of events is always the same in the system event log:
1. 2 x Event Source = NETwNb64, Event ID = 5007, (Description is not useful as the associated resource from the event log message is not correctly installed).
2. 1 x Event Source = NDIS, Event ID = 10400 (The network interface "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260" has begun resetting).
3. 2 x Event Source = NETwNb64, Event ID = 5032, (Description is not useful as the associated resource from the event log message is not correctly installed).
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 six times.
5. 1 x Event Source = WLAN-AutoConfig, Event ID = 4003 (WLAN AutoConfig detected limit connectivity, performing Reset/Recover.adapter. Code: 1 0xC 0x4)
6. 1 x Event Source = WLAN-AutoConfig, Event ID = 4003 (WLAN AutoConfig detected limit connectivity, performing Reset/Recover.adapter. Code: 2 0xDEADDEED 0xEEEC)
At the end of this all wireless networking is unrecoverable, the wireless adapter appears disabled and will not re-enable in Network Connections.
This problem started happening about two months ago. I would not know the exact Intel Proset Wireless version of software the problem may have initially occurred with.
Since then I have tried various Intel Proset Wireless Versions 18.32, 18.33, 18.40.4 and19.20.3 which all produce the same issue.
I have also tried it without Proset software using Windows 10 to auto update the driver which gives me the WLAN driver version 18.104.22.168 (the one that ships with Proset 19.20.3).
The most significant issue I am aware of is the enablement of IPv6 on my home network router which will have occured about 2 months ago (don't know the exact timing).
I wonder if IPv6 in Windows 10 with these drivers is causing some kind of problem.
I have not experimented with the 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' option yet. This is what I am moving on to for diagnosis.
Otherwise it will be get a replacement wireless USB adapter for the Laptop and disable the internal wireless adapter.
