How can I get the AC8265 "mandatory access point" setting to work properly on driver 20.70.3.3, win10(17134.706). Driver does't seem to take any notice of what BSSID I put in anymore to force a specific AP connection. Worked for me on AC7260(18.33.12.2).

Hello KFrid, Thank you for your response. I would like to confirm that Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 supports BSS. Now, according to the report attached, you have the following driver configuration on your computer: Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software Version:"20.90.0.0" > Driver Version:"20.70.3.3" We have newer driver versions available at our Download Center that you can try to address this issue. When installing a wireless driver, we recommend performing a clean installation to avoid problems caused by older drivers. It is worth mentioning that Intel also recommends trying Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) drivers first due to driver customizations that allow the proper functionality of computers. You can find more information below: 1. Clean Installation of Wireless Drivers https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000022173/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html 2. Lenovo* drivers T470p Laptop (ThinkPad) > Driver & software: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/cr/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t470p/downloads NOTE: This link is being offered for your convenience and should not be viewed as an endorsement by Intel of the content, products, or services offered there. 3. Intel drivers Package version 21.0.0 > Driver version 20.70.7.1 for 8265 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28687/Windows-10-Wi-Fi-Drivers-for-Intel-Wireless-Adapters?product=94150 4. If you receive an error message during the installation of the generic driver, try using the IT Administrator Links for Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000017246/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html Please let us know if the problem persists.
