Hello diehard,

 

 

This is actually an universal Microsoft* requirement for Windows® 10 Certified WLAN drivers.

 

 

Please keep in mind that the http://www.realtek.com/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=59&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=375 RTL8723BS* is a RealTek*, not an Intel® Wireless Adapter.

 

 

I believe their idea is for this (and most) of networking to be handled through the OS only, in order to close possible security gaps.
