What is the difference between "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers" and "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology"? Does one contain only WiFi drivers and the other only BT drivers?

Hello leosenko1,

As you mentioned, the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers is the package for the WiFi component of the Intel® Wireless Adapters. The Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology is required to use the Bluetooth* portion of the adapter.

The WiFi and Bluetooth* drivers are independent from each other since some adapters do not have the Bluetooth* component and do not use this driver.
