In this case, if the wireless card came already installed in this computer when you bought it, our first recommendation is to uninstall all related files since the updates and install the drivers from the support page of your computer manufacturer according to your computer model. The reason it may not be working properly is because our drivers are generic and may not meet your system requirements. If you have replaced the original wireless card, it is important that you know that Intel does support integration. Please take a look at this information online: Intel® Wi-Fi Products — Regulatory Information Regarding Hardware Installation or Upgrade and Wireless Networking — Installation Error when Installing or Swapping Intel Wireless Adapters
Please consult with your computer manufacturer first.
Thanks for the reply, but in the meantime I was able to figure it out. Turns out when I uninstalled the network adapter from the device manager, I forgot to check the box that said "uninstall all software and drivers". Once I did that, I restarted Windows and it automatically found and successfully installed the drivers, and my wi-fi connection is functional again. Thank you for the quick response.
