Intel has published a new set of drivers for Windows 10 and Windows 11. The drivers were published earlier this week and have just started rolling out to users running Intel’s assistant engine. The focus of the new release is on wireless network quality.
Unlike the previous driver update, which addressed Blue Screen of Death and other errors, Intel is focusing on connectivity issues with today’s update. According to the changelog, this is the first release to include fixes for Intel’s new product portfolio (Wi-Fi 6E AX411).
It should also be pointed out that Intel’s driver updates are initially provided through the company’s update tool. The new drivers aren’t available to everyone, and chipmakers will begin pushing drivers to more devices or configurations in the coming weeks once the drivers have been tested on new hardware. than.
Wi-Fi Driver Change Table
Intel says the latest Wi-Fi driver for Windows 10 and Windows 11 resolves a bug that causes Wi-Fi connection timeouts. This can happen because of the Access Point’s channel change request.
Another bug where some wireless adapters might not connect to the WPA/AES wireless profile was fixed in this release. Intel has also enabled support for Windows 11 in the company’s PROSet/Wireless Software.
Intel PROSet/Wireless Software 22.100.1 includes functional and security fixes, and the company says users should update to the latest version as soon as possible.
Intel is rolling out driver updates for the following adapters:
- AX201, AX200, 9560, 9260, 9462, 9461
- 8265 and 8260.
- 7265, 3165 and 3168.
As always, only supported hardware will receive the update. To check eligibility, open Device Manager, select and select the “Network Adapters” branch. If your device adapter is listed above, you should be able to apply new drivers to your system.
Bluetooth Driver Change Table
Intel fixed an issue where low sound quality could be observed when using some Bluetooth soundbars during voice calls. Another bug affects the music playback quality of some AAC headphones.
According to the release notes, the Bluetooth driver has also been updated to include security and functionality updates.
How to get the update
Windows 10 or Windows 11 allows you to manage your device drivers. If you don’t like Windows Update, you can use Device Manager and Intel’s Driver & Support tool to deploy the driver yourself.
Microsoft and Intel will also release this drive through Windows Update in the coming months, but this will be entirely up to your OEM.
Depending on your OEM, the automatic rollout may take some time. Fortunately, Intel has created a simple tool that allows you to download drivers easily.
To receive new driver updates, follow these steps:
- Install and run the Intel Driver and Support tool (iDSA) from here.
- Open the Update Assistant and complete the setup.
- Open the Intel update tool from the system tray and check for updates.
As we mentioned at the beginning, drivers can take up to several weeks to fully deploy, and they may not appear in the Intel Driver and Support Assistant (iDSA).
If you don’t see a driver update when running Intel Assistant, you can also download the driver packages manually.
