    AC 7260 Driver Possibly missing from ProSet IT 18.12.0.3 Driver

    David.Austin

      Operating System: Windows 10 Pro (Build 10240), 64 Bit

      Wireless Card: Intel AC 7260

      Current Driver: 17.15.0.5

       

      It looks like the inf/cat files for the AC-7620 may be missing from the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for IT Admins 18.12.0.3:

       

      I Downloaded Wireless_18.12.0_Dt64.zip (Also tried the Wireless_18.12.0_All.zip version) from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25181

       

      Note on the documentation on the page it says the 7260 is in the package:

       

      Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 (32/64) - 18.12.0.3 (note: no Windows 8 support)

      • Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

       

      If you unzip the package, and update driver using Device manager by browsing to the folder, you get a "Windows has determined that the driver software for your device is up to date" message, and the driver version stays on 17.15.0.5.

       

      If you try to Update driver from Device manager and select the "Let me pick From a list of devices on my computer" option, then give it the path, you end up viewing all the driver versions in the package, which does not include the AC 7260, but does include all the other supported cards (See screenshot below - Model list scrolls, but AC-7260 is nowhere on it)

       

      I'd expect to see the AC 7260 in the list in order for the updated driver to work, so it looks like some of the files or config for it is missing from this driver pack.
