Question Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 Fails to connect to my router

Feb 22, 2019
Hi !
I've very recently upgraded my wifi card to to one using the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 driver, sadly, so far I have been unable to get it to connect to my own router

Here are the infos I've been able to gather:
  • Motherboard: ASRock B85M Pro4
  • Power supply: Corsair - CX 430
  • Wifi Adapter: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 PCIe linked to motherboard using a PCIe to PCI adapter (this one)
  • Driver Version:
  • My Windows Event Logs are filled with "The network adapter has returned an invalid value to the driver."
  • I am able to get an internet connection by using my phone as an access point and removing the security key (keeping the security key will still allow me to connect to it, but I will not have any internet connection)
My router and Modem are all standard ISP stuff (French ISP Neuf), so I currently do not know the exact model numbers, will check if they are necessary here
