If the auto-search tool indicates that the computer already has the latest driver for the adapter try to search and install the new driver manually (Advanced):

  1. Google the make and model of the adapter as noted in step 3 above together with the word driver, e.g. Intel AC-7265 driver
  2. Select the closest match with page address matching the manufacturer's name (e.g. intel.com) then navigate to their driver download page.
  3. The drivers are usually listed with release dates. Download and install the most relevant driver with release date later than the driver date noted in step 4 above.
