    Standard reply from intel customer support by email, and pushing responsibilities


      Just like many other users, I am facing "limited connectivity" issue on Intel Wireless-N 7260 card. I use Windows 8.1. The latest driver version 16.7, which claimed have fixed the issue, is not available for Intel Wireless-N 7260. If I use Microsoft's driver, I won't face this issue. I emailed Intel's customer support to ask when a new driver that fix the issue of my laptop's wireless card. Guess what are their reply?


      Here is their reply:

      As you can see, they are trying to push the responsibilities to the laptop manufacturer. I sent a reply in angry mood.


      To Intel, can you explain on the reply by your customer support staff?


      Also, when are you going to release a driver that fix the "limited connectivity" issue for Intel Wireless-N 7260?
