My computer recognizes Intel Dualband wireless AC 7260 plus bluetooth in Windows 8.1, then this wireless adapter is compatible with my computer. I don't understand why doesn't work in windows 10.
As we have informed you privously, we don't suport integration and our first recommendation is for you to check with your computer manufacturer as they are the only ones entitled to provide you a list compatible adapters. On our best effort to help you after you consulted with your OEM to see what they have and if for some reason the solution they have still did not resolve your issue, you can try the following:
1 - Download and save https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25279/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-for-Windows-10 Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Windows® 10https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25279/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-for-Windows-10 File name: Wireless_18.20.0_e164.exe
2 - Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features and Uninstall "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software", if it is installed. When prompted, choose the option to "Discard settings".
3 - In Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapters, right click on the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 and uninstall it. Make sure you mark the option to "Delete the driver software for this device".
4 - Reboot the PC or scan for hardware changes, check device manager and if an older driver is detected and installed, repeat the actions to uninstall and delete it as well. Repeat this process until the OS does not allow deleting the driver, or until the controller shows as Unknown Device.
5 - Then, install the Intel® Wireless driver. During the first steps of PROSet/Wireless installation, make sure to customize the installation and install all the 3 driver components as they improve WiDi functionality.
This is as far as we can go considering this card is not the oen installed by factory. You also may consult the PoP if they have anything that might help you as well.
