I recently bought a wireless card with Wireless-AC 7265 as an upgrade, and so far I have not been able to connect to a network that isn't an unsecured shared connection, I have installed the proset drivers from the current latest available drivers (18.104.22.168), and have done a diagnostic using the system support utility in advance, which I have attached to this question
Furthermore, whenever I try to connect to a network, I see those errors in the windows event log (translated from french): "The network card returned an invalid value to the driver"
Hi ! Thanks for answering !
> What is the model of the motherboard?
It is an ASRock B85M Pro4
> Is this a new computer?
It is a computer built in 2014
> Did yo make any recent hardware/software changes?
This adapter is the only change it has gotten since it was built
> Was it working fine before?
The Previous adapter was a TPLink 300Mbps, and it worked without any issues
> The wireless card, did you purchased it separately to replace the one that came installed in the computer?
Yes, along with a PCIe to PCI adapter, if it makes any difference
> When did the issue start?
Ever since I've replaced it
> Did you check with your Internet service provider to make sure the Internet is working properly?
It works jsust fine on my phone and when I swap the adapter back to the old one
> The problem happens at home or work environment?
> Do you have the option to test a different router?
I do not sadly
> We can always try a clean installation of the Intel® generic wireless driver:
> Intel® wireless driver 20.110.0:
I have attempted that to no avail sadly
> You mentioned that you installed wirless driver version latest available drivers (22.214.171.124), is that the driver provided by ASRock?
That driver version if the one available in the 20.120.0 package (126.96.36.199 for 7265(Rev. D))
I was able to find a version of proset 16.5.3, unfortunaly, installing it doesn't seem to change the driver version (when choosing from the available drivers in my pc, the earliest I can get is version 17 from february 2015, which doesn't even show me any network)
So this is making me guess that this card isn't fully compatible with my motherboard, if that's correct I'll switch back to the old one and hold on to this one until I change the motherboard
Alright, I'll go there and see if I can find anything that shows what's supported by it, since there was no wifi related drivers in the page for the motherboard I have, which is weird
In any case, I am planning on upgrading the big parts soon, so this isn't a big loss (the PCIe to PCI adapter I got with it might be the only loss here)
Thanks for the help and the directions !
