Another person with an Intel NUC + Intel AC 7260 issue here.
I have a brand new Intel NUC D54250WYK running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. All updates (BIOS, drivers, etc.) installed and I cannot get the Intel AC 7260 wireless adapter to work.
Device manager recognizes the adapter as "Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260", but there is an exclamation mark associated with that listing and when I double-click on it the device status reads "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".
If I run the Intel PROSet Wireless WiFi Manual Diagnostics it fails the hardware test stating "Wireless Hardware is not bound to transport driver".
Any help would be much appreciated!
I understand you are having problems with the Wireless adapter on your NUC so let me help you with this.
