    I uninstalled and checked 'delete ' for my wireless network adapter. I meant to do that to the driver. Oops...

    Anyway now it isn't there. Diagnostics tool says 'wireless hardware is not bound to transport driver.'

    I have a Lenovo Y50, Windows 8.1

    The wireless adapter is/was Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160.

    I tried doing Device Manager -> Action -> Add legacy hardware -> Choose from list

    But I don't see Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 listed.

    Please help T-T
