We faced a strange behavior with new HP 850G3 Notebooks with AC 8260 Wireless. We set a WLAN Profile via GPO to connect to the WLAN when the computer is starting. Sometimes it works but most of the time the connections is not made until an user logs in. This causes that the user has no network drives and the profile is not loading.
In the Windows event logs I see errors like:
Description for event ID "6510" from "NETwNs64" not found.
Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
I have completely uninstalled all network drivers (even those from Windows) and reinstalled them with Intel(R) Driver Update Utility but the problem still exists. The wireless signal is very strong and with older notebooks (HP 850 G1) it works fine.
Driver Version: 184.108.40.206
PROSet/Wireless Software: 19.20.3
OS: Win7 Professional x64
Does anyone have similar problems and/or a solution?
thanks for any answer!
We understand you are having issues setting up your wireless adapter to be used with the Pre-Login connect feature.
First we would like to point out that the drivers provided by us through the Driver Update Utility are our latest generic drivers. We always recommend using the OEM specific drivers provided by your computer manufacturer, if at all possible. The drivers provided to you by HP*, in this case, will take into account any changes and feature modifications made while the adapter was integrated into your system. Our generic drivers may not.
