    Not detecting newer driver available - Intel Driver & Support Assistant




      I have a Lenovo Yoga (Win10 1803) running the Intel Driver & Support Assistant v3.5.1.7 and the system has an Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260. The issue is that the Intel Driver & Support Assistant is not detecting when there is a newer WiFi driver available:


      * Tested the Intel Driver & Support Assistant with Firefox 62.0.2, Edge (1803) and IE11 (1803) - all 3 browsers report that "Your Intel® software is up to date."


      * The Intel 7260 is using this driver -> Version: 20.70.0 (Previously Released) Date: 7/31/2018, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27989/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10?product=75440


      * However, there is a newer driver available -> Version: 20.80.0 (Latest) Date: 9/11/2018, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28143/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10?v=t


      * Lenovo no longer publishes updated drivers for this device so I rely on the  Intel Driver & Support Assistant to keep the drivers up to date (usually needed when a new version of Windows 10 is released every 6 months)


      Because the Intel Driver & Support Assistant is showing the Intel 7260 WiFi is up to date, I wanted to see if you could check the attached Intel Driver & Support Assistant logs to see why it isn't seeing the newer driver. Also, let me know if there are any other logs I can send over. Thanks!
