The D2W parts utilize the same drivers as the standard cards. You can download the drivers here:

Bluetooth: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30121

Wireless: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30112

Hope this helps,

I want you to try doing a clean install. Here is the special process for doing so:

Here is proper process for performing a clean WLAN Install: 

  1. If you haven't already, download - but do not install just yet - the latest Bluetooth and WiFi drivers for your adapter. Here are links to these drivers: Bluetooth: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/3012 and Wireless: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/30112.
  2. Disable Internet access. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable wireless. Keep disabled until told to re-enable.
  3. From Apps & Features, check for instances of Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel Wireless Bluetooth. If none, skip to step 6.
  4. Uninstall each instance of Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Intel Wireless Bluetooth that is present. When prompted, choose to "Discard Settings".
  5. Manually reboot your computer, keeping Internet access disabled.
  6. In Device Manager, check Network Adapters for an entry for Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3165. If none, go to Step 9.
  7. Right click on the entry for Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3165 and uninstall it, choosing to (checkmark) Delete the driver software for this device.
  8. Go to Step 5.
  9. (Optional but recommended) Clean out all temporary files using the Windows Clean Disk tool. I recommend that you checkmark all categories offered, even if no files currently (so it leaves it set up for next invocation).
  10. (Optional but recommended) Clear each of your browsers' cache.
  11. Install the Bluetooth driver package (rule: always do Bluetooth first).
  12. Install the Wireless driver package.
  13. Manually shutdown and reboot your computer.
  14. Enable Internet access.
  15. Test.

Hope this helps,
