Hobbe,

They are generic for the most Intel adapters. But the mostly used adapters are 6205, 6235, 7260 and 7265. I'm using my deployment tool update driver from that page. Useing this command iprodifx.exe /silent

I have confirmed that this does indeed redirect you to the generic IO support page

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o.html Intel® Network and I/O Products

This is true from the last ProSet update page I found, which is at least 6 months out of date.

This makes it extremely difficult to support Intel wifi products in an Enterprise environment when Intel will not properly support this page anymore. The new download structure, which only has searching capability, is also exceptionally difficult to find downloads. It used to have a self-guided download, but now it is search only.

Please fix this asap please. HP and Dell have very outdated versions of these drivers and are not the best at keeping things up to date. They also typically don't have the enterprise Zip file either.

Thank You

Indeed, this is a huge oversight from Intel and needs to be fixed asap.

I'm trying to add new models for deployment and they will be using older Intel WIFI drivers because this page is missing.

I found a slight workaround for the time being.

It appears that HP's support downloads have the Enterprise versions, but finding them is a bit of a pain. The way that I found them is to go to www.hp.com, then click on support.

Search for various HP Elitebook models. For example, the HP Elitebook 840 G3 - which is a brand new SkyLake laptop - has the newest 18.3.0.9 driver. Here is the Windows 10 driver:

http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=7815295&swItemId=ob_158742_1&swEnvOid=419... http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=7815295&swItemId=ob_158742_1&swEnvOid=419...

For the older wifi cards, like the 5130, you would browse an older laptop model like the HP Elitebook 8460p (Sandy Bridge) or Elitebook 8440p (Nehalem 1st Gen Core).

Another thing of note - Intel will claim that drivers will only work for the 7260-AC, 7265-AC, 8260, 18260 etc. This is false. If you look in the driver INF file (netwew00.inf, netwew01.inf, netwew02.inf) you can browse all the Plug and Play Device IDs and they will all list the compatible models. For example, in the newest 18.3.0.9 Windows 10 driver Intel claims it will only support:

Intel Dual Band Wireless 7265

Intel Dual Band Wireless 8260

Intel Dual Band Wireless NGW 3165

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265

Intel Dual Band Wireless-AN 7265

Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 3160

Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260

Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7265

Intel Wireless-N 3160

Intel Wireless-N 7260

But in truth it also supports:

What he said about the Bluetooth zip files. There's a link at the bottom of wireless drivers page, and it does open, but I don't think think it's current.

This has absolutely, positively, 100%, without question, with a cherry on top, been like pulling teeth.

That's the one, but it's dated. I'm currently using Version 18.1.1551.2884.

Anyway, thanks again for the links.

What I'm sure all of us would appreciate is that when your driver group release a new file, that your site devs get informed to put it up on the IT Admins link, too. In addition to the ordinary download link. So we don't have to come back here and gripe about it.

Like now, when you've just released 18.32.

Thanks much.

Good timing this time, but...

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25686 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25686

From that link:

"Which file should you download for Windows® 10?

Windows 10 32-Bit: Wireless_18.32.0_Driver32_Win10.zip

Windows 10 64-Bit: Wireless_18.32.0_Driver64_Win10.zip"

You left out the standalone drivers for Windows 10.

Intel:

Please also note the Bluetooth for IT Administrators link is not current (it does not link to the newest versions) and has typographical errors. It also does not have the stand-alone driver for the 8260.

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005773.html Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® IT Administrator Zip...

Please post and provide an IT Administrator Bluetooth driver for the Intel 8260. It would also be extremely helpful if we could request Intel to consolidate the drivers into ONE installer for ALL Bluetooth controllers and ALL versions of Windows 7 through 10.

For all the IT admins out there, to clear out some confusion:

Intel has THREE sets of Bluetooth driver installers. Further complicating matters is that Intel provides a SEPARATE installer for each version of Windows for each installer type. There is a X86 and X64 installer for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.0.

The Intel 8260 drivers are covered by the Intel "SfP" controller. They use the "SfP" driver set. The current version is NOT packed as a IT administrator download and cannot be silently installed. The current version is 18.1.1535.1946:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25338/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-for-Bluetooth-technol... Download Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology for Windows® 10 64-bit (SfP)

The Intel 17265, 7265, 3165 drivers are covered by the Intel "StP" controller. They use the "new" driver set. The current version of this 17.1.1532.1813 (for Windows 7/8.1) or 17.1.1532.1814 (for Windows 10).

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25349/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-Bluetooth-for-IT-admi... Download Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software Bluetooth® for IT administrators (StP)

The Intel 7260, 6235, 3160, 2230, 1030 and 135 are the "legacy" controller. They use the "legacy" or "WP" driver set. The current "Legacy" or "WP" driver for IT Administrators is 17.1.1531.1764:
