    Try this driver:

    Yes, that's the page I was on. I downloaded "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology for Windows® 10 64-bit (JP)" since that's the only one that's listed for Windows 10 64-bit.

    Then I went to Device Manager, uninstalled the driver for "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230" (at which point the Wi-Fi stopped working, obviously, and the device disappeared from Device Manager), and installed the driver I downloaded. At first, nothing seemed to change and the device still didn't appear in Device Manager. Then I tried to refresh by selecting Action > Scan for hardware changes. This caused the device to appear again, but when I checked the driver it was using, it was the same as the one I had uninstalled, so I suspect Windows just reinstalled this driver automatically. I concluded that the driver I downloaded was not what I was looking for.

    So is there anything there I should have done differently? I'm still not sure what the thing I downloaded is actually for.

    That card is a EOL that is no longer supported by Intel, since Microsoft keeps the wireless driver in their repository. You need to either get a USB adapter or pull the old 2230 and get a 7260 for it. You would need a second antenna to get dual channels, but it would allow you to get by without needing an external. The 7260 runs under $30.

    Sorry this is old but just reporting that update KB3116278 (which for some reason just recently decided to install on my system) seems to have fixed the problem.
