Thank you for your post Masooma,

 

Please note that the latest version no longer uses the Intel(R) My WiFi technology; it uses the Intel® My WiFi Dashboard.

To do a clean install of the drivers and software see the following steps:

 

First download and save to your desktop the latest drivers and software package (file: Wireless_15.2.0_s32.exe)

Then download and save to your desktop the dashboard software: (file: Intel_My_WiFi_Dashboard_15.2.0_s32.msi)

1. Remove the Intel® PROSet software from Control Panel\ Control Panel home\ programs, 'uninstall a Program', check also for any other PROSet software and uninstall it too.

2. Go to 'Start' right-click on 'Computer' click on device manager (on the left panel) click on "Network Adapters"\Double-Click the adapter name\Drivers Tab and click on the "Uninstall" button if present.

3. Remove the Wireless folder found at C:\Users\YOUR_PROFILE_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Intel. (if you do not see the "AppData" folder you need to "unhide " it, pres 'alt' click on tools then 'folder options' in folder options click on 'view' then select "Show hidden files, folders and drives" then click ok )

4. Install the latest drivers. (Right-click on the icon of the driver, and click on "run as administrator", click next, then accept the agreement, select "Custom installation' make sure all the features are available, no red "X" marked)

5. Right-click on the icon of the Intel® My WiFi Dashboard and click on "run as administrator" to Install the dashboard.

I hope this helps
