I installed an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 on my Acer ES1-512. Bluetooth works WIFI does not.


After installing the drivers (WP-BT_17.1.1411.01_e164 and/or Wireless_17.13.11_s64 (i tried both at the same time, and one at a time. Any combo I could think of.)) there is no wifi. I had the WIFI working twice with this new chip. Each time it stopped working after a reboot or hibernation. The bluetooth always works. I am on windows 8.1 x64. Any help or suggestions on how to get the wireless working are welcome.
