The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 is designed to be used by laptop manufacturers in their OEM systems. We cannot guarantee that the adapter will operate properly with a mini-PCIe adapter and in a desktop motherboard that was not designed to use this Wireless adapter.
Installing or upgrading the various Intel® Wireless Adapters by end users is not supported by Intel.

Thanks for the reply - I will check the driver version I have against the latest available again. As a side note, the 3160 is installed directly in the mini-pcie slot on an Intel micro-ATX system board.
