Laptop Networking Card

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay, so I got tired of the absolutely slow speed of the built in network card in my laptop and replaced it with an Intel 3160 Dual Band AC card. For some reason windows finds it, but I can't turn on the wireless and find a wireless network. Any ideas?

That's strange. I would have thought that would have fixed it.

I was considering reinstalling windows on it.

Are you sure that is compatible with your laptop? Try using another HDD/SSD with windows on and see if you have the same issue. assuming that have rebooted the laptop after the drivers have installed. It may be a driver conflict, your laptop is still trying to use the drive from the last card instead of the new one perhaps, happen a lot in the early days of windows 7; Reinstalling windows would more then likely fix it, as long as you are ok to do it. Did you get the drivers through windows update,intel website or an included cd?


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

I've reinstalled windows and the issue still persists. Every time I've tried to install drivers its been through windows and not actually downloading it from the manufactures website. When I first installed the card, I noticed that the previous card only had one antenna connection, and the new card had two. I am just wondering if that could have anything to do with it, because I only connected one of the antennas.

Moat networking cards can't tell if they have anntens connected. Try getting the drivers from Intel.
