D54250WYK1 NUC - WiFI Card not recognized

I have added a Intel wifi card to my NUC. Installed latest driver and the device is not seen. I have actually tried a couple of different cards thinking that was the issue at first.

I've updated the BIOS. Still no joy. Just doesn't show up in Device Manager. And according to the BIOS both PCI slots are empty.

Any ideas what could be going on here?

thanks

Norman

Two questions,

  1. What WiFi card did you add?
  2. Do you have both WiFi and Bluetooth enabled in BIOS Setup?

Thanks for the response.

I have the Intel Wireless-AC 7260 Dual-Band WiFi + Bluetooth Mini PCI-E Adapter installed

I can't find any settings for BT or WiFi in the BIOS. Looked through it all I think.

What am I missing?

Well, that's the right adapter to be using. I ask the other question without checking my WY NUC BIOS - and you're right; there were no configuration parameters for wireless back then.

Hhmmm, what driver packages did you install? There are actually two (install in this order) for each Windows version:

Yes, that is the driver I have installed. The 64bit Win10 one.

Seems bizarre. Must be some hardware issue so. May have to go with a USB wifi card

Well ruling out everything else helped. I went back and re-inserted the card. It looked perfectly tight first time, but this made a difference. Wi-Fi worked just fine once I booted it.

Thank you
