Hi all, I was hoping I might find a solution other than buying a new wireless adapter. I am currently unable to detect a wireless signal, and the wifi LED is off- however, the Bluetooth works fine.
I'm running Windows 10 64 bit, and I have a MSI Z170A Gaming Pro motherboard. Both are up to date.
I'm not terribly computer savvy, but I've tried the following without success:
I cannot tell if anything truly triggered this or not: I simply booted my pc up a couple weeks ago and wasn't able to connect.
We understand you're having issues with the Wi-Fi module in your Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, resulting in an Error Code 1 in Device Manager.
Considering the extend of troubleshooting already performed, it's possible that your adapter may be failing. While both Bluetooth® and WiFi are integrated on the same adapter, these two modules work and can experience individual issues.
In order to better assist you, we would like some more information. Please share a picture of the label of your adapter, as well as a report from the Intel® System Support Utility.
1. Download the latest https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293 Intel® SSU
2. While connected to your WiFi network, run the scan for "everything."
3. Save and name the report.
We look forward to hearing back from you.
I'm having the same issue with the same card. Bluetooth is working but the Wifi keeps failing. By failing I mean it connects then it stops working while saying it's connected then it disconnects and the available wifi list is empty. I have to delete the network card from device manager and readd it. It works for a few seconds and it's rinse and repeat. I tried an old Wireless N USB adapter and it's working fine. Does this mean the wifi portion of the 7260HMW is done?
I have it set to lowest now and it has not disconnected yet. I'll give it 24-48 hours before considering this solved.
Why is is this an issue all of a sudden anyway?
Hello, DontLookNow. Allow me to help you with this issue.
Let us try the following:
Alright, just did everything to a tee with deleting and updating the v20 Bluetooth drivers as linked and looking at the Device Manger settings. Nothing worked. It connects to the Wifi, shows connected but doesn't work (can't surf). After a few seconds all other available Wifi disappear and mine is left showing connected. After a few more seconds mine is dropped and the available list is empty it goes to the icon for no network card with a red "x". Windows 10 says to install a Wifi card when I run the diagnosis which seems weird because the device manager says the card is running properly.
Hello, DontLookNow. Thank you for your response.
Can you please share with us an Event Viewer log? In order to generate it, please follow this guide: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997769 https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997769
Which part of the Application tree in the Event Viewer would you like? There looks to > 100-branches under Application->Microsoft. There are only events for Microsoft Applications, Powershell, and Persona-Digital, other then that I have to expand each branch under Microsoft and most of them say "0" events. PowerShell has the most at > 2000.
Even responding to this message the Wifi quit and I had to re-insert the USB adapter. When I do re-enable the AC7260 network entry in the Device Manager my Bluetooth mouse starts to be choppy. I disable the entry after it quits working and the mouse is smooth again.
Sent a private message with a Dropbox link to download the files.
1. Application event log export from time I logged in to when it quit
2. Security event log in case you needed those
In the application log it does show some event where within a minute of logging in the internet can not be accessed.
Hello, DontLookNow. Thank you for your patience.
I am currently investigating into your case with the information you shared. In this case, for me to have more information of your system and provide you with better information please share with me the .txt file that the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- System Support Utility will generate.

Thank you for your help but you can call this issued closed because I will not be doing a clean install of Windows 10 for what seems to be a faulty card. I checked my firmware and it is up-to-date as per Dell support site. All drivers are good and software functioning. The new Asus USB-AC53 Nano adapter is working with no issues so we will continue to use it for now.
Again thank you for you assistance.
