Hello,

I am trying to find the wireless driver 18.40.4 without Proset software. The latest version I can find without Proset Software is 18.33.

Thank you,

-Derek

Hello DC500,

As you suggested, the standard version of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software, version 18.40.4 does not include a driver only option. This is mainly because the features of the software are made to improve connectivity and functionality and we encourage users to install them whenever possible.

If you require the independent driver files, or any additional option, please use the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software intended for IT administrators:

Hi JB,

Thank you! I am an IT administrator, and that is exactly what I was looking for. I was not able to find it through regular searching, how do you get to the 'Professional' drivers when browsing the drivers and downloads site?

Thanks,

-Derek
