I had a problem with blue screens a few months ago. After wasting lots of time troubleshooting, I finally found that Windows update had automatically installed the wrong wireless driver. Can't remember what I installed, but it got rid of the problem. You need to use device manager when looking at this.
You can also turn off the ability of Windows to "update" device drivers. I did this for awhile and it prevented the bad driver from coming back. Of course, at some point you want updates so you will have to reverse it.

We don't have any problems with Blue Screens or "bad drivers". It doesnt matter which driver we install for the AC-3165 card, the card just doesn't work. Tried the latest driver and previous versions, no result.
This all happens after the Windows Anniversary Update.
Windows and the rest of the laptop works perfectly fine, except for the wifi-adapter.

I returned by laptop for service and Lenovo(Germany) changed my wireless card to some other company(Qualcomm) wireless card. Now its working fine.

Its Qualcomm Atheros wireless card. I think these wireless cards are not very costly. For example you can check ebay for Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165. It will be around 15 Euros only. Also you can use usb wireless adapter for now for quick solution.

I understand but which Quallcomm-Atheros card is installed. It is a specific type f.e.;
What Lenovo Germany did is remove the Intel AC-3165 and replaced it by a certain Quallcomm-Atheros card that is fit for the motherboard of the Y700.
You can look-up the type at device manager (right mouse click on the windows logo, bottom left of the screen).
