Mysterious WiMax 6250 Device Cannot Find Driver

I have an older Toshiba laptop - Satelite M645-S4070 part number PSMPBU-00R01R running Windows 10 Pro Build 18363. I have an Intel Centrino Advanced-N+WiMax 6250 device in my device manager that is listed as OTHER that has no driver available. I still have wireless and lan capabilities because I also have it listed as ok under my network adapters as Intel Centrino Advanced-N+WiMax 6250 AGN along with numerous other devices. I tried the Intel Driver and Support Assistant and all I got back was one driver needed for memory and storage tool. Under network and I/O, everything looks fine... NETWORKING AND I/O Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6250 AGN Npcap Loopback Adapter VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet1 VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet8 I am trying to get bluetooth to work and I suspect that is part of my 'OTHER' device issues. How can I fix this? Hardware IDs for the 'OTHER' WiMax device is USB\VID_8086&PID_0186&REV_0000 USB\VID_8086&PID_0186 Let me know if I need to include more. Thanks!

You need a driver that, due to this adapter being discontinued, is no longer available on the Intel site. Luckily, I made a backup. I will send you an IM with download instructions.

Click on the little mailbox icon on the community banner. It should have a little red circle on it indicating message(s) waiting.
