Intel provides a "Driver Only" Package that does not include the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software:
If you have Windows 8.1 32-bit and 8.1 64-bit:
DRIVERS ONLY: wireless_17.14.0_De132.exe and wireless_17.14.0_De164.exe
In the link above you can also obtain the full package containing the application:
Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software (includes Drivers): wireless_17.14.0_e132.exe and wireless_17.14.0_e164.exe
If your system is having connectivity issues, it would be better to remove the previous software versions from you PC before installing the new one. Here are some steps you may use to do the clean install:
- Download the software/drivers and save to a know location.
- In Control Panel - Programs and features, Uninstall Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software.
- In Control Panel - Device Manager - Network Adapters, right click and uninstall the Intel® Wireless AC 7260, selecting the option to "Delete the driver software for this device".
- Install the new driver you downloaded.
