I upgraded the drivers - no luck

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 2x2 AGN + Bluetooth

Installed - updated the driver in device manager connected to the LAN cable - no joy

I have tried multiple drivers from Intel site.
I have also done a clean re-build and tried again

any ideas?

The network card is seen but won't turn on, its a soft switch on the laptop and it lights up for about 3 seconds and goes off.

I have noticed that the WIFI card is located at PCI BUS 3
This does not seem to be installed

Not sure if this is the right track or not ?

You only want the lastest one... have you tried replacing the wifi card or putting it into another 8/ 8.1 machine to test?

Did the old pre-upgrade system have hyper-v, vmware or Vbox installed perhaps?

Old machine did not have hyper-v, vmware or Vbox installed.

I have tested with the old wifi card and the new one - getting the same result

I have also tried updating all the chipset drivers

I'll now test the wifi card in another laptop

Tested the WIFI card on another laptop - working fine.
I also tested the WIFI card from the other laptop in the affected win 10 laptop.
Same issue - added drivers etc from intel site.

IMO all you can do now is report it and move on mate... Microsoft is in full speed a-head mode and not interrested in patches but they will get around to it one day.
