    Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 17265 shown as Intel® Dualband Wireless-AC 7260 in Device Manager

      Hey guys,

       

      do you know if its normal that the Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 17265 is shown as Intel® Dualband Wireless-AC 7260 in Device Manager under the Networkadapters Tab?
      Ive problems getting Wigig to work on a Dell Latitute E5550. The Wigig Application is allways showing "Wigig reagiert nicht" recommending me to restart my PC, which doesnt help.

      Its the same whether or not i use the original Dell Driver/Wigig Application from support.dell.com  or the Drivers/Wigig App found on the Intel Site.

       

      According to the spec sheet of the 17265, it contains the 7265 to provide support normal WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity, so i guess its the correct status shown in the device manager. But then i am totaly lost, not knowing how to get the Wigig App working.

       

      I also tried another 17265 in this PC, to rule out a defect of the card itself. But the issue is still the same.
