Why does my Intel(R) Dual Bans Wireless-AC 3160 Adapter stop working when my laptop sleeps?

Every time I close my laptop my WiFi disconnects and seems to disappears completely, as i go to connect it in my network settings and it can't find any connections.

 

I ran the troubleshooter and it came up with "The Intel(R) Dual Bans Wireless-AC 3160 adapter is experiencing driver - or hardware - related Problems."

 

And it remains like that until I restart the laptop, but as soon as i close the laptop or sleep it, the problem happens again and there are no connections.

 

I bought this laptop no more than 2 months ago and everything came with it so i know it wasn't me fucking up an installation or anything

 

can someone please help i need this for school and work and its really fucking up my day.
