I bought a LG 24V360 computer a while ago and a few days ago I formatted it for some problems, I installed the drivers but I can't find anything about Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-3160 drivers for Windows 10 and I found that it is discontinued, what can I do?

Intel released only a single driver package that contained the compatibility fixes for WiFi 6 routers. Then, almost immediately afterwards, they discontinued the adapter and removed support for it from the subsequent driver packages (if you install a subsequent package, it will not update the driver as you would expect). No, you must specifically install the 21.10.1 packages (which provide the 18.33.17.1 Wireless driver and 20.100.5.1 Bluetooth driver).

Intel, in all their wisdom, next decided to remove all downloads for products that have been discontinued. Luckily, when I saw these discontinuation notices, I saved away copies of the final driver release packages in my archive. I currently have a portion of this archive in the cloud and you can download the driver packages (Wireless and Bluetooth) from there. Use this link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtacZBU04mo-j-tQ34BdSDv6y1BFsg?e=7gn50T to access my archive. Subfolders provide final driver packages for most of the Discontinued Wireless adapters.

Hope this helps,

@Kya9576,

You don't need a private link to access it. Use the public link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtacZBU04mo-j-tQ34BdSDv6y1BFsg?e=7gn50T to access my archive. Subfolders provide final driver packages for almost all of the Discontinued Wireless adapters.
