Intel Driver Support Assistant fails to complete Realtek card driver update


Several times now the Intel Driver Support Assistant has "updated" the Realtek card driver on my NUC7i7BNB, BIOS version 0088 and apparently finished it but the next day it wants to do it all over again. I am running Windows 10 Pro version 21H2. This fault is new (to me) as of Feb 7, 2022.

Has anyone else encountered this? Has anyone found a fix?

Max_Lipovore, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this matter, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

Is this a new Intel® NUC?

When did you purchase it?

Was the Intel® Driver Support Assistant working fine before installing the proper drivers?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes that might cause this problem?

Which Windows* version are you using?

Does the problem happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Any questions, please let me know.

Hi @Max_Lipovore 

The same failure happened to me on NUC8i7INH. Although, the Realtek Card Driver was updated by IDSA and also later downloaded and updated manually, the IDSA is reporting that this driver is not updated. 

I believe that there is some problem between the driver date shown in the download center and the date shown in driver installed in Windows (i.e. this is a false indication). So, in order to avoid this indication, you may turn OFF (hide) this notification.





Hi Albert,

Answers to your questions:

1: no
2: 3 years ago
3: ISA was working just prior to this issue
4: No recent changes to hardware /software
5: Windows 10 Pro version 21H2
6: home
The Intel SSU file is attached. In the meantime I am going to try Leon's suggestion.

Max_Lipovore, Thank you very much for providing that information and the SSU report.

"In the meantime I am going to try Leon's suggestion", perfect, that will be a good option to try.

For this specific scenario, we recommend to test different browsers since Intel® DSA only works with the following: Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.

Then you can also try to clear the browser cache then try rescanning the Intel® DSA tool. Also, to Click “Refresh Results” on the menu on the left-hand side of the scan page, it acts as a complete “start over” for the service.

If the problem persists after that, run the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant Uninstaller version

Restart and install the latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant tool version

If the issue still remains, please provide the latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant Uninstaller log file: using File Explorer, search for DSAUninstaller.log

Also, the latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant log files: using File Explorer: go to folder = C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA, and zip the Log files or entire folder.

Note: Uncheck "Hide System Files" to see the AppData folder.
