After the latest, mandatory, Windows Update, my wifi card stopped working. I have fully resetted the laptop (clean instal with the NOVO button) and then it works - until the Update is installed again.
I've tried installing the newest drivers - 188.8.131.52 - no effect. I've disabled and uninstalled al WAN miniports (my supplier told me to try that) - no effect. My supplier (Paradigit from NL) says that they're not responsible...
How can I fix the wifi problem?

Hi there, Wedge -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
You could also use the System Restore feature to get your computer back the time when it worked.
Update us how it goes.
Tap that kudos button if I helped

As told, it works when I fully reset the Laptop with NOVO.
No doubt it will also work with System Restore. However, if I do this, I miss the Anniversary Update and therefore critical security and improvement functions that are implemented in this update.
So skipping the Anniversary Update is not really an option - it is also not possible (unless you want to have Windows tell you every second that your computer is in danger) to cancel the update as it is download automatically.
Since there are no other (at least I cant find one) persons known with this problem my guess is that it's specificly correlated to my laptop type. Other AC3165 intel cards in other types of laptops seem to work fine after the update.
What can I do besides exposing my laptop to security risks by not installing the updates?

So I noticed that I'm not the only one with the problem;
Can Lenovo please bring a quick fix for this type of wifi card...

I have the same problem. After the last Windows Update, I got a bluescreen yesterday and then my wifi stopped working. I've done everything that was on the lenovo troubleshooting page and nothing worked. Please help.
