The IDSA keep telling me there is an update for the wireless adapters, but after I download the driver (Windows® 10 and Windows 11* WiFi package drivers 22.200.2) and install it, it said installation complete, however, when i refresh the result of IDSA, the update notification still appear on the page and the version of the driver still remain the previous version 22.200.2.1. Is this a bug or something went wrong ? Please help ...Wireless Adapters Update.png

Hi @DeadlyKiss94,


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I'm sorry for the inconvenience this might have caused you. In order to help you, please help me with the following information: 



  •  When did the issue start? Was there any recent changes?  
  •  To get more information, please download and install the Intel System Support Utility (Intel SSU): https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- Open the application and select "Everything" click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. By default, Intel SSU will take you to the "Summary View". Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View". Click on "Next", save the report and attach it to your response.


Best regards,

Notice the driver version difference, 22.200.*  VS 22.220.*.

 

But why is the 22.220.* driver offered only through D & S assistant a month after it's release date and 

 

NOT AVAILABLE via the official website for Windows® 10 and Windows 11* WiFi package drivers.

Why is that page still offering 22.200.* ??

 

Is this a suply chain attack ?? I got suspicious when within minutes of installing this driver i get a Bluetooth pairing request from an unknown source when bleutooth should not be advertising its presence.

Hi @DeadlyKiss94,


Thank you for your help. In this case, let me check this internally, since yes, the latest one available will be version 22.200.2.1. I will post back with more information shortly.

I was able to recover the install file from C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA\Downloads,

the file being "WiFi-22.220.0-Driver64-Win10-Win11.exe"

It is signed as normal, nothing looks out of order with the file itself.

Well, I download from Intel page itself directed by IDSA and after I click 'Learn more about this update', it open a new tab and show the latest driver version is 22.200.2.

That makes sense, i let D&S Assistant download and install it.

That's how i got the file downloaded and installed.

 

Same thing happens today but with the Graphics driver,  i got offered the new 31.0.101.4314 which is still not available via the website itself.

Seems like D&S Assistant is getting priority over the download websites that may/will get updated later i'm guessing.

Somehow I feel like the IDSA update notifications kinda misleading, given the fact that the update offered actually not available.

The update offered is available but you have to click download and install from within the D&S Assistant, the app will download and install the file.

You should not go to the relevant website via the applink, the website itself is not yet updated.

 

I only find it strange that both are not updated at the same time, that causes confusion indeed.

Not to mention security assurance.

Anything gets hacked these days and having conflicting messages from Intel is not reassuring.

Hi Carlos_L_Intel,

 

i think the problem for me is resolved since the websites have been updated as well now.

This clears up the doubt about legitimacy.

 

Thanks.
