5300 AGN BSOD Win 7 64 ver 15.1.0

I recently updated my 5300 AGN drivers on Win 7 64 to version 15.1.0 and am now getting PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD dumps on occation. Clicking on the drivers page details shows the actual driver to be

I tried to go to the drivers page tonight and keep getting page not found errors. The automatic detect software also does not work. I tried with both Firefox and IE and it does not work - although it tries to get Java 1.6 u 29, although I already have 1.6 u31 and 1.7 u3 (tried both). Note both are 64 bit versions.

Here is a short dump from bluescreenview:

Thank you for your post. The download center was under maintenance, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused you.

The link for Windows* 7 drivers download would be:

You would use the 2nd download (Wireless_15.1.0_Ds64.exe) for the driver only file or the last download (Wireless_15.1.0_s64.exe) for the software plus driver package.

The driver version you are listing is actually the latest one that will install for your wireless adapter (Intel uses one driver package for all wireless adapters; it would just load the appropriate ones for the hardware you have). But in regards to the errors you describe it may indicate that corruption or mismatch.

Try to download the drivers from your laptop manufacturer (which are usually customized and tested with your specific system set up) then uninstall the current drivers and install the ones you just downloaded. To uninstall the drivers and software see the steps below:

1- Go to 'Start' right-click on 'Computer' click on, properties, then on device manager (on the left panel) click on "Network Adapters"\Double-Click the adapter name\Drivers Tab and click on the "Uninstall" button.

2- Remove the Intel® PROSet software from Control Panel\ Control Panel home\ programs, 'uninstall a Program'

i have solved my bsod´s issue with the intel 5300 agn card with:

connect the laptop to the router with lan cable, be sure you are connected to the internet

in the device manger select the intel 5300 driver tab, remove (deinstall) the driver

let the device manger search new hardware and the microsoft driver will be installed

no bsod´s since then

good luck
