Wi Fi driver reinstall

Envy 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The wifi has ceased to function and the wifi icon has dissappeared from task bar. I have carried out windows update and BIOS update and disabled and renabled the wifi connectivity as recommended elswhere on this forum. Next step is to uninstall & reinstall the drivers , my wifi is an Intel AC 3160. My query is, is that what I uninstall/reinstall ( I cannot find a driver for it on HP website} or is it the Realtek PCIe GBE family controller which is on the website. Thanks

If your notebook has an Intel 3160 wifi adapter, then you need to uninstall and reinstall the Intel 3160 device and driver in the device manager.


I would just reinstall with the latest 3160 wifi driver directly from Intel.
