Warning sign on WiFi Adaptor in Device Manager

  1. Problem:::
    My Laptop contains "Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205" built into it and OS is Windows 10 (x64) Pro. Problem never occurs with Adapters but today I start my Machine and it Vanishes the "WiFi" option from network as it was never in it. Every Wireless network option gone, now only Bluetooth is showing in it. When I open "Device Manager >> Networks" It has only Ethernet cable driver showing After "Scanning for harware changes" my wifi adapter comes again but with a Yellow Exclamation mark on it As shown in Image of Device Manager....

    But any Wifi Option still not coming in Network. No wireless adapter is showing in "Control Panel>>Network and Internet>>Network Connections" except Ethernet.
    I have done::
    I opened System Information>>Components>> Problem Devices That was
    Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205 PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0085&SUBSYS_13118086&REV_34\4&14E33B2D&0&00E1 This device cannot start. also an image is here.... System Info.png

    You need to update the wifi driver.

    First disable WiFI, then connect via wired cable.

    The reenable the wifi in the device mgr, right-click on it and Update Driver

    But there is no update available.
    Its showing I've the latest driver installed for this hardware
    and no any update is available for this on manufacturer site.

    Good, you checked both windows and the oem. Likely it's a Windows 10 (x64) Pro update that got in the way.

    On the device, UNINSTALL the driver, but do not delete it, then reboot for device autodiscovery.

    Ok I've done it. Uninstalled the driver of Wi Fi adapter and not deleted it. Its gone now, After restarting there is a device appear
    as Other Devices containing Network Controller and after a while it comes again in Network Adapter list in Device manager with yellow mark. What to do now?
