    AC 8260 WLAN Connection before Login fails




      We faced a strange behavior with new HP 850G3 Notebooks with AC 8260 Wireless. We set a WLAN Profile via GPO to connect to the WLAN when the computer is starting. Sometimes it works but most of the time the connections is not made until an user logs in. This causes that the user has no network drives and the profile is not loading.


      In the Windows event logs I see errors like:


      Description for event ID "6510" from "NETwNs64" not found.


      Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260


      I have completely uninstalled all network drivers (even those from Windows) and reinstalled them with Intel(R) Driver Update Utility but the problem still exists. The wireless signal is very strong and with older notebooks (HP 850 G1) it works fine.


      Driver Version:

      PROSet/Wireless Software: 19.20.3

      OS: Win7 Professional x64


      Does anyone have similar problems and/or a solution?


      thanks for any answer!
