    Intel AC 8265 Desktop WiFi - DOA or Driver Issue?


      In short, my card is not showing up in the drivers list in Windows Device Manager and it does not show up as a hidden device either.  It is encased in an adapter that connects to the motherboard's PCIe x1 slot, along with a wire connecting to the USB hub for Bluetooth. It is correctly seated, but the only thing I see is a indicator light on the adapter saying it is supposedly getting power. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest Intel drivers. I'm just wondering if I am missing something or  I need to DOA this chip? It's a brand new chip and I was using a wireless Intel Centrino before, I just really wanted the upgrade! I had that Centrino sitting around until I found this AC 8265. 

      System Specs (home build):

      Windows 10 64 bit

      Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AX370-GamingK7

      CPU AMD Ryzen 1800x

      WiFi Adapter Case: Fenvi FV8802

      Let me know if there is more information needed please.
