Intel recommends that you always obtain the latest driver from your computer manufacturer:Computer Manufacturer Support Websites in order to make sure all the latest features and functionalities can be used properly. As a second option, you can try our latest drivers version 18.30.0 found in this link as it contains important updates: Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Windows® 10 - File Name: Wireless_18.30.0__PROSet_64.exe
Same issue here on Intel NUC5i7RYB, with Intel Dual Band Wireless - AC-7265 and running on Windows 10 Pro, version 1511.
Disabling/enabling the adapter did not work.
Latest WLAN adapter driver installed, v18.104.22.168. incl. reboot.
Device manager: "This device is working properly"...
But I can't connect as there are "No Wi-Fi networks found".
No further settings have been changed locally.
All other devices are able to connect to private WiFi network (e.g. iPad, Samsung Galaxy S2, HP Envy 5530 MFP).
The only thing I can think of that must be causing this, would indeed be the recent cumulative Windows 10 update to v1511.
Moreover, this also seems to impact the Intel Wireless Bluetooth facility on my NUC.
It has become unavailable at the same time, also here "The device is working properly" and also after re-enabling and driver update (to 17.1.1532.1814) and a reboot.
Hope this gets fixed soon!
There have been subsequent updates to ver1511 since it came out. Supposedly, the last one fixes WI-FI problems,
however, once your WI-FI goes out how do you get them ?
My NUC is connected to LAN as well, fortunately
I receive Windows updates automatically and as I'm now writing this from my iPad, I'm pretty sure that the latest (cumulative v1511) updates have been installed on my WIN 10 NUC.
Hence, if these last updates were supposed to have solved this WiFi (and hopefully also the Bluetooth) issue, then I'm affraid I must disappoint Microsoft...
For you I hope the issue has been resolved, but as this is not (yet) the case for me, I'd surely like to read an Intel response here too, as in my case this issue impacts all Intel products... (Intel NUC and Intel WLAN-, Bluetooth adapters/drivers)...
You do not have to guess. Do a windows key + R and type in "winver".
See if the Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.36) is present, if so you do, if not you don't.
Just ver1511 is build 10586, then it went .3, .11, .14, .17, .29, .36
There have been 6 updates after the base as of 12/17/15.
Lucky you are also LAN atached, I am not so lucky.
That's the latest, did you try looking to see what the status of the WLAN service is ? Some people got it working
by starting it since it was stopped.
Did you try running the Troubleshooter ?
I meant Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting > All Categories then
select "Network Adapter", but I suspect this would not help.
Some people have had success with changing the BIOS back to the default settings.
I have updated to 18.30. You are saying to go back 2 versions ?
