I have been doling out the drivers to one user at a time, so that I could collect user information to use in my argument that the files need to be reposted. I am at the point of giving up, however. Intel is saying that there is a security risk associated with reposting the drivers and that Intel Legal is simply not going to allow it.

So, I am providing a share link here that will allow anyone to pull the final file releases for the various discontinued Wireless Adapters that I had archived: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtacZBU04mo-j-tQ34BdSDv6y1BFsg?e=7gn50T. Where possible, I have included the original Release Note files; where not possible, I have created Release Note files with what information I have access to.

If someone wants to take these files and put them on a file sharing service, go for it. Let me know where they are available and I will remove them from my share.

Hi Scott, I’ve downloaded the driver you’ve shared and found it is the same version as what on Lenovo website for ThinkPad T440. I installed the driver on my ThinkPad T410s with Windows 7 64bit. It worked well and stable, but often caused a key issue: my laptop often stuck in "Starting Windows" during booting, then I had to turn off my wireless hardware and it would enter the desktop. There were tens of NETwNs64 issues in System log, and it appears the NETwNs64 refers to a driver file NETwsw02.sys. Could you please help me with this issue?
Best regards.

I am afraid there's not much I can do for you. These drivers are many years old and Windows 7 long in the rear mirror. Still, post a log file here and we'll see what we can do...

Thanks. My ThinkPad T410s with Windows 7 is really old, but its swichable number keypad, 16:10 ratio screen, reliability and easy of understanding, make it a nice tool for my work mainly based on Excel,just like a bicycle to and from work.
Here I attach a System Log under normal startup since the previous logs has been cleared and startup stuck hasn't occured during the past several days. Please start from 2023/9/4. The differace is, under starup stuck, there will be more than a dozen NETwNs64 items, the details of which are the same as the second and third ones of 3023/9/4 in this log, all related to \Device\NDMP4(or NDMP5,6,etc).
Please understand my English expression. I come from mainland China.Thanks again.
BTW,I'm wonder why I cannot reply the post on my laptop with Microsoft Edge? Now I have to do that on my iPhone's Safari.

Do you have both the Intel Chipset Device Software and Intel Management Engine packages installed? I am seeing a HECI event (Not-Found condition, I think) at the same time.

Yes, I’m sure I have the both installed. 
And I’ve noticed that the event-ID of NETwNs64 are 7001 or 7036 etc  under normal startup while 5002 or 5005 under stuck. But Windows said that it couldn’t find the description of event-ID 50xx or 70xx. Could you consider these differences?

Thanks again. And hope this issue doesn’t bother you as much as what the community forum did for me: I just posted a new thread since I can’t reply on this thread, then I find can reply using a VPN.

Maybe I’ve resolved my two issues: I downloaded a 7260 driver (Rev. 16.10.0.5) from Microsoft Update Catalog, which worked well and stable on my laptop with Windows 7. And I can reply if I get access to this website through a VPN. 
Thanks again.

@EugenG,

Use this link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtacZBU04mo-j-tQ34BdSDv6y1BFsg?e=7gn50T to access my archive. Subfolders provide final driver packages for most of the Discontinued Wireless adapters.

Hope this helps,
