Windows 8 Wireless drivers - any ETA?

I have an Intel 6230 that would love some Windows 8 drivers.

I have tried the Windows 7 drivers as these have worked for other products but they don't install properly on Windows 8.

Is there a beta driver floating around for testing?

Thank you for your post.

Correctly we do not have an ETA on when Windows* 8 beta drivers will be posted/made available.

The lasted Windows* 7 drivers (released on July 20th) would be available here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3315&DwnldID=21560&ProductFamily=Wirel... http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3315&DwnldID=21560&ProductFamily=Wirel...

For testing you may try using just the base drivers (the first two options on at the link above)

Thanks for the reply Nathalie.

I did try the driver package but I don't think it installed correctly. I was left with no Start Menu entry, nothing in Uninstall Programs and I couldn't actually find the drivers on the C: drive. The 6230 didn't find any drivers either when doing a search.

What I would like to do is unpack the the driver exe and then point the 6230 at the folder of drivers.

I tried the usual ways of unpacking Wireless_15.2.0_Ds64.exe (Winrar etc) but didn't have any luck.

Can you tell me how to extract the actual driver files from this package? .inf files and etc.

Thanks, Tristan.
