Hello ThomasTanYW,

 

 

Thanks for posting in our communities.

 

 

Drivers for Windows CE* (Compact Embedded) can be found in the following website:

 

 

https://www.microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/drivercatalog.aspx Windows CE* - Supported Drivers

 

 

However, there are no drivers listed for https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/dual-band-wireless-ac-82... Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265. We provide drivers for the supported operating systems only: Windows 7*, 8.1 and 10.

 

 

You could test using the drivers for the regular consumer versions of Windows* The packages including the drivers files alone (referred as "driver only") can be downloaded here:

Hello Eugenio,

thanks for replying. I thought Windows 7 and CE 7 is 2 completely different OS?

I dont think the windows drivers can work on CE.

Hello ThomasTanYW,

 

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

 

You're correct, Windows* CE and Windows 7*,/8.1/10 are very different operating systems and it wouldn't be surprising that the drivers for the consumer versions don't work on the embedded versions. However, we just mentioned that in case you were willing to try.

 

 

Windows CE* is not a compatible operating system for https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005602/network-and-i-o/wireless-networki... Intel® Wireless adapters.

 

 

Best regards,
