but note it's a 600 MB bundle which contains ALL the drivers for probably almost ALL their network cards, and the installer is supposed to install only your network card drivers.
This package is released in 18th of december. Asus has a driver that's dated 17th of December.
Also note the Asus driver says your firmware must be updated to version 1.45 - the update tool is probably in the download file... but probably the intel driver and support assistance can also update the firmware for you.
I’ll try directly from intel I think that would be best. Thank you very much for the links and here’s hoping that this solves my problem!
