On a new Intel NUC 12 Extreme I had installed manually all the drivers including WiFi & BlueTooth).

Then installed IDSA (v22.8.50.7).  IDSA offers two out of date drivers:

  1. Intel® Wireless Technology-Based Driver for Windows® 10 & Windows* 11 for Intel® NUC Products - v22.160.0.4
  2. Intel® Wireless Bluetooth® Driver for Windows® 10 64-Bit and Windows 11* for Intel® NUC - v22.160.0.4

I let it download both drivers.

For #1, when I try to install the only option is 'Repair' and after I allow it to install the IDSA keeps saying it needs to install

For #2, when I try to install, a popup shows "Are you sure you want to upgrade from 22.160.0.3 to version 22.160.0.3?  NOTICE: the versions shown are identical and doesn't match what IDSA claimed it was going to install!

 

In device manager, I see

  • Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211  - driver v22.160.0.3

Try downloading the package yourself (from here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/18649/741441/intel-wireless-bluetooth-for-windows-1...) and install it manually. Check what driver is present after doing the install and then again after doing a reboot(to see if Windows Update is interfering with it).

Thanks.  Checked after that BT driver shows 22.160.0.4.  Also, IDSA is seeing it as up-to-date.
