        same issue here with Centrino 6200 AGN on HP Pavilion DV6t-2300 running win7 x64 SP1. We've been having it ever since we upgraded smartphones and use hotspot on them. whenever Centrino wifi card (all possible drivers tested) tries connecting to wifi hotspot on fast android smartphone, 1-2 minutes later a BSOD D1 pointing to NETwNs64.sys every time.

         

        I'm done with it, I will pull out that wifi card and smash it with a hammer. just ordered Atheros BGN mini PCIe card off ebay ($4 shipped), no more Intel wifi cards for me ever. It's the second Intel Centrino wifi adapter that caused me so much grief.

         

        Centrino 6200/6300 series is as useless as another Intel wifi card (model 4200?) I used to have on old Toshiba Satellite laptop long time ago, back then going with Atheros was the cure too. Intel doesn't know how to make wifi adapters!

        so many years, same bugs (unstable speeds, BSOD under load, power saving issues driver dependent), it's a joke. Intel should stick to making CPUs, LAN adapters & SSDs, they make fools of themselves with their Centrino wifi adapters.

          I'm having the exact same issue.

           

          6205 Lenovo X1 Carbon.

           

          As soon as I Tether to my Sprint HTC EVO LTE I get a BSOD a few seconds later.

           

          Tried direct from Intel version 15.4 dated 1/23/2013

           

          Worked fine on my Lenovo T420 also with a 6205 but had older drivers 14.3 dated 10/27/2011 and no Bluetooth.

           

          I will try to find older drivers.

            Similar issue here :

            Windows 7 (64-bit) + Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN

            BSOD with WiFi tethering with Nexus 4. The crashes happens within a few seconds of establishing the connection.

              Thank you for posting.

               

              It seems this could be related to operating system corruption.

               

              Please try the following:

               

              A. Uninstall all the wireless software

              B. Run all the windows updates


              If you've followed the above steps and are continuing to experience this issue this error can also be caused by a bad virtual memory page file. To correct this issue follow the below steps:


              1. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and Open the System icon.
              2. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
              3. Click the Settings button under Performance.
              4. Click the Advanced tab.
              5. Click the Change button under Virtual Memory.
              6. Select No paging file and then click each of the Ok buttons until all windows are closed.
              7. Restart Windows.
              8. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and Open the System icon.
              9. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
              10. Click the Settings button under Performance.
              11. Click the Advanced tab.
              12. Click the Change button under Virtual Memory.
              13. Click System managed size and then click each of the Ok buttons until all windows are closed.

               

              C. Install the latest Intel® driver for the wireless adapter and try again.

                That has to be the dumbest suggestion I've ever seen posted on a technical forum.

                 

                A corrupt swap file, that ONLY causes the WIFI to fail ONLY when tethered to an Android device and does not cause any other issues.

                 

                I really hope you don't work for Intel, because we are in big trouble if you do.

                  I have same problem from HP Elitebook 8540p (Win 64). Connection to Android hotspot causes BSOD. This happens regardless of other connections. A tablet can use the hotspot just fine. This seams like an obvious driver issue, is Intel working on a fix? This was working on v14.x drivers previously.

                    This is an Intel driver issue.  Having the exact same issue on a new Dell XPS 13 with an Intel 6230 card and my Nokia 920.  The Nokia wifi tether works great on all my systems with non Intel wireless cards (I am a product tester, so I have a ton of devices), but I get a BSOD on my XPS 13 with an Intel wifi card.

                     

                    Temp fix is to enable FIPS in the Nokia 920 wireless settings (if you can make it that far before BSOD).

                     

                    Intel - please fix - this is YOUR issue.  Not Nokia, not Dell, not any other OEM.

                      Exact same issue on HP Compaq 8510w laptop with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN wireless adapter. Every time I try to connect to my Android AP (LG Nexus 4) I get a BSoD.

                        We are currently investigating about this issue.

                        Thanks for your patience and understanding.

                          Same issue here with a Centrino Wireless-N 130 on Win8 x64, Avatar Mercury Ultrabook.  Driver at 15.7.0.3 (which is what the 15.8.0.0 download installs).  Connecting to an NEC Terrain (Android 4.0.0) hotspot.

                            I know you're just the messenger for the product management and development teams, Joe, but personally, I'm out of patience, and I don't understand why it is taking Intel so long to fix this bug. Are you having trouble replicating the problem? If so, call me, because I can make it happen whenever I want just by connecting my laptop (with a Centrino 6230 on Windows 7 64-bit with the 15.7.0.3 driver) to the Verizon hotspot software on my HTC smartphone running Android 4.0.4.

                              First I join the others in this thread that I also experienced this BSOD: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN on Dell 1749 running Windows 7 64-bit in combination with various Android phones (Galaxy Nexus, HTC Desire, HTC ONE S). BSOD occured both with drivers (and My WiFi dashboard) v15.6 and v15.8.

                               

                              Second is a problem that I suspect to be related, namely that Android phones (Galaxy Nexus, HTC Desire, HTC ONE S) are not able to keep a stable connection with the My WiFi hotspot. After initial connection if will fail after a few seconds to a few minutes without being able to reconnect to the hotspot (errors vary, one phone indicates "authentication faillure") until the hotspot functionality is restarted. The connection typically fails before the BSOD bug can occur I could not find this bug on the Intel Communities, but elsewhere on the Internet there are several reports of exactly this bug.

                               

                              Contrary to above 3 Android phone models, an Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Android tablet) works fine.

                               

                              edit:

                              After update to Android 4.3 the Galaxy Nexus seems to work fine for over a day with v15.8. No connection issues. No BSOD. That leaves the other Android phones that work fine with every normal hotspot except the Intel My Wifi hotspot.

                                It looks like Intel may have finally fixed this bug in the latest PROset/Wireless package, version 16.1.1, which was just released a few days ago, on August 7.  I installed this package on my laptop with an internal Centrino Advanced-N 6230 adapter, running Windows 7 64-bit, and it brought the driver to version 15.9.05, dated 6/16/2013.  I am apparently now able to successfully connect to the wireless hotspot on my Verizon Incredible 4G LTE (aka HTC Fireball model ADR6410LVW) running Android 4.0.4 without bluescreening.

                                  Thanks for pointing that out.

                                   

                                  I updated to v16.1.1 and successfully tested with an HTC ONE S.
