bluetooth intel filter driver for AC3168

I had an older laptop that used intel AC7260 + BT combo card, in order to get bluetooth work under server 2012, I installed the filter driver which in the netwew02.inf file shows:

"NIC_MPCIEX_7260AC_2x2_HMC ="Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260"

however on my new laptop it has AC3168 and it isn't included in my filter driver .inf which is why i couldn't get bluetooth working.

is there an updated version for the filter driver that includes the latest m.2 wifi bluetooth combo card?

or give me a bluetooth driver that will work in server 2012 (windows 8, not 8.1/2012 r2).
