    Intel 7260 + Windows 8.1 - not supported?

    Vibes

      When using the download wizard to search for drivers for my wireless:

       

      Product family       Wireless Networking 

      Product line           Intel® Wi-Fi Products 

      Product name        Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

      Operating System Windows 8.1, 64-bit

       

      ... I get presented the version 16.6.0 download along with these release notes:

       

      Note: The following adapters do not support Windows 8.1 64-Bit:

      Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 
      Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260  
      Intel® Wireless-N 7260 
      Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160
      Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 for Desktop

       

      Is this a glitch in the document? We've been buying hundreds of Dell laptops with the AC 7260 and Windows 8.1 64-bit factory installed, so at least they are expecting to be able to support that combo...
