    Random BSOD with Netwbw02.sys using windows hotspot


      I'm using the Windows hotspot option to extend my WiFi network, and I'm getting random BSODs using the last drivers.

      The device is Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160, Driver Version:"", Intel ® PROSet/Wireless Software Version:""

      This is the report:

      A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: netwbw02.sys (Intel® Wireless WiFi Link Driver, Intel Corporation).


      I tried to analyze the dump with WinDbg but I can't really use it properly since I don't have the symbols for the driver (netwbw02.pdb). The only information I could see is that the driver caused a stack buffer overrun, as reported by vwififlt.sys

      Thank you for your attention.
