Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160


I purchased the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 (3160.HMWG.R) to replace my card in my Toshiba L675D-S7060. I have the drivers installed and the card will not turn on. Fn +F8 does not cut in on, I do not have a swtch or button to turn it on. Is there anyway in the Proset software or another way I have not tried?

Thanks in advance

Before we go any further, we would like to inform you that Intel does not support integration which is when the original wireless adapter is replaced by another one.
