BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL netwbw02.sys wireless AC-7260

I'm suddenly getting a BSOD after updating to the latest windows 10 build (1607). This started right after the update. In fact, I sometimes get a BSOD, and sometimes I lose my internet. I'll still have the wifi connection, but it will say no internet. If I toggle the wifi off then on it reconnects with internet with no problem. I was having ZERO issues until the latest update. My laptop is an Acer Aspire-V3 772G-9460

Currently using driver version 18.33.3.2. Here's the dump file from the latest BSOD:

Hello DerrickRay,

 

 

We understand you're experiencing some connectivity issues and BSoD errors after upgrading to the latest build of Windows® 10. Our recommendation in this case is to make sure your wireless drivers are up to date. You can also check with your computer manufacturer to see if a BIOS update is available.Note: Any links provided for third party tools or sites are offered for your convenience and should not be viewed as an endorsement by Intel of the content, products, or services offered there. We do not offer support for any third party tool mentioned here.

 

 

Best regards,

My wireless driver is up to date as far as I know. I'm using version 18.33.3.2, which appears to be the most up to date version for the wireless card that I am using.

I also have the latest BIOS version.

I purchased this wireless card as an upgrade. It was working flawlessly until the latest windows update was installed. In fact, just before typing this response I lost my wifi and had to toggle it off then back on to get re-connected to the internet.

Hello DerrickRay,

 

 

Keep in mind that only OEMs and their authorized representatives are allowed to install/upgrade these adapters. Even though this wireless adapter did not originally give you any problems, it's possible that a Windows* update could have triggered a compatibility issue.

 

 

Please review this articles:

In a best effort basis, I can recommend for you to perform a clean installation of your wireless drivers. Hopefully this will resolve your issue:

Note: After uninstalling your wireless drivers, you will lose WiFi connectivity. We recommend downloading the latest drivers and saving them to an easy to find location first. Or having the option to connect using a wired connection.

  1. Remove WiFi components
    1. Uninstall driver from Device Manager*. If prompted, choose remove driver.
    2. Remove Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers from Programs and Features in the Control Panel.
  2. Remove temporary files
    1. Press Windows* Key + R to open the run box. Type Cleanmgr.exe. Press OK.
    2. Select your boot drive (usually C:\)
    3. Check Temporary Files and uncheck everything else. Press OK.
  3. Remove hidden temporary folders
    1. Go to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\
    2. Delete the "Intel" folder found here.
  4. Install the latest version of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers.
    1. Choose to Customize.
    2. Select all options available.

If the problem persists after this troubleshooting, you can try temporarily disabling your antivirus or VPN software, as it could be altering the way your driver behaves.

Hope this information helps.

Best regards,

Followed all of the steps outlined above. Lost wifi connectivity probably about 10 hours later.

For the record, I'm using windows defender as my antivirus and am not running any VPN software. My guess is that the latest updates to windows has created some sort of compatibility issue with this wifi driver. Not sure what other steps I can take at this point.

Hello DerrickRay,

 

 

Since what you're doing is not supported, our recommendation would be to contact the manufacturer of your computer to see if this wireless adapter is approved for your system. They may also be able to recommend a supported replacement.

With all due respect that's nonsense. If that were the case this chip would have been giving me problems right from the start. What I think I'll do is press the issue with Microsoft as it seems it is their update that is at the root of the issue. Bottom line is that an incompatibility was recently created and it should be fixable on one end or the other.

Hello DerrickRay,

 

 

I understand your point, specially considering the adapter worked before. Regrettably wireless integrations do limit our support options since we're only able to provide a generic driver, and have no way of finding the specific driver from the OEM the adapter was intended for.

 

 

Hopefully Microsoft* will be able to provide a solution, or a future update might resolve the problem.

 

 

Regards,
