Windows 7: Unable to install PROWinx64 -missing Intel Network Adapter

Unable to install PROWinx64 -missing Intel Network Adapter

Hello everyone, here's to my first post:

I had a BSOD a while ago and, although it hasn't occured again, it somehow led to my Wireless Driver being uninstalled( my laptop could detect wireless networks before, not anymore).

My immediate action was to attempt to reinstall the official driver on the TOSHIBA EU driver support page. It seems to have been installed, but the problem persisted. So, I tried to install it manually from the Intel website, using PROWinx64, but I couldn't install it due to it not detecting any "Intel Network Adapter". After checking System Information, the Network Driver is indeed unavailable and I don't know how to repair/reinstall it.

These are the contents of the Network Adapters section in Device Manager:
->intel(r) dual band wireless-ac 3160
->realtek pcie gbe family controller (my LAN works)

So does anyone know how to make the Network Adapter functional again?
