You might want to try reinstalling the latest drivers. Use this process:
- Download latest drivers (both Wireless and Bluetooth) and place somewhere convenient on system's drives.
- Disconnect the system from the internet. Unplug Ethernet cable and/or disable Wireless.
- Uninstall the current Wireless and Bluetooth drivers.
- Reboot (keeping internet disconnected).
- Install the drivers you downloaded previously (important: Bluetooth then Wireless).
- Reconnect the system to the internet.
Hope this helps,
Thanks but...no joy. I have disabled the onboard 3160 and am (temporarily, I hope) using a USB dongle for wireless network connections. The work-around is performing at 100% over 16 hours where the 3160 was dropping out about every 3 to 5 minutes.
Thank you for responding.
The Intel Wireless Adapter AC-3160 came pre-installed; the problems are now resolved as a result of a new driver that was pushed to me via Intel Support Assist on 5/29/19. The Release Date of the driver shows as 4/29/19 but it was not previously available to me via either Intel Support or Dell Support. The new driver was downloaded I uninstalled my workaround (Realtek Wireless AC USB), installed the new driver and rebooted.
My Intel Wireless AC-3160 is again in working order and the earth may continue to rotate.
