NUC DC3217IYE and Intel 3160HMW Dual Band WiFi Bluetooth PCIe card (half size)

Hello,

I have a Nuc DC3217IYE and I just plugged a PCIe card so to add bluetooth (and wifi).

The card is an Intel 3160HMW Dual Band WiFi Bluetooth PCIe half-size card. I also installed the latest drivers (Intel PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers and Intel Wireless Bluetooth Software for Windows 10 - 64bit version)

I can now see a bluetooth icon (but no Wifi ?) but in any case, Windows doesn't seem to detect anything : I tried to detect my android smartphone or pair my bluetooth speaker = nothing found

Is there something I forgot or that I am missing ?

Hello Nikko,

 

 

We understand you are not able to connect to WiFi nor Bluetooth* after installing the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 in your NUC. Please check the following and let us know if this helps:

 

 

- Make sure that the antennas are firmly plugged to the connectors of the wireless adapter, as seen in step 3 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/nuc-kits/DC3217IYE_IntegrationGuide06.pdf Intel® NUC Kit DC3217IYE Integration Guide, and in pages 5-6 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/nuc-kits/DC3217IYE_UserGuide02.pdf Intel® NUC Kit DC3217IYE User Guide.

 

 

- Do a clean install of the recommended driver versions for your new adapter:

- Check the Device Settings and confirm Bluetooth* is enabled. Also, verify WiFi is On in the Network & Internet Settings.

 

 

Regards,

 

Jonathan.

I recently noted Intel Customer Support saying that the Bluetooth package needs to be installed before the WiFi package (though I previously thought it didn't matter). I suggest that you

(a) uninstall the two driver packages that you currently have installed

(b) reboot (important!)

(c) install the Bluetooth package followed by the WiFi package...

Hope this helps,
