Inspiron 17 7737 -- WIFI Adapter Missing

Dell Inspiron 17 7737 came with Intel (R) Dual Band Wireless - N 7260 adapter. The adapter is "lost" after soon after upgraded to Windows 10. Windows 10 is not able to detect the adapter, as if it was not installed. Any attempt to update driver was blocked.

I managed to get Bluetooth driver updated and working. However, WIFI adapter is somehow "history". Currently I have to depend on external WIFI adapter. Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 should be serving both Bluetooth and WIFI.

Does anyone experience this situation? How could we resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

RE: Inspiron 17 7737 -- WIFI Adapter Missing

I am also facing the same problem now; but it worked very well for nearly past 1.5 years with Win10.

I don't know how to fix this issue.  I tried and I am trying various options, and failed in all attempt.

Please could anybody help me to overcome this issue ?
