Windows 7: Intel Pro/Wireless Utility installed but not found

14 Jan 2010   #11

windows 7 64-bit

hi Chev65.
I do appreciate all of your efforts but unfortunately I don't have that (see attached).
I may have to wait for someone which have my stupid wireless card. (why do I really need to have that utility as I had the flexibility to select which access points I can connect to [I have networks with up to 100 APes, same SSID and need sometime to connect to more specific ones forcing the mandatory AP feature].

Do you happen to know other utitilty which would be doing the same?

7 Home Premium x64 / XP Professional x86

Hi Alex
I don't have Intel Proset Wireless Utility installed on my 7 computer but here is the shortcut path for it from my XP computer (should be the same or similar):
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\WirelessCommon\iFrmewrk.exe" /af Intel PROSet/Wireless

I believe the Utility mounts as a addon/plugin in the iFrmewrk.exe environment.

I hope this helps,

Hi Zedemmonk,
I have tried to start the ultlity with the shortcut provided but unfortunately I'm getting an error (see attached).
I'm really curious if anybody would make this working (I'm really dumb when comes with Windows).

Thanks for your time.

Windows 7 Pro
Microsoft and Intel

I spoke with Intel Tech support about the same issue. They informed me that the Pro/Wireless Utility was only supported by Microsoft up to Windows XP. After XP Microsoft refused to release the information to Intel that they need to write the code so the Utility would work with VISTA and 7. So the only option you have is to use the WLan Management provided by Microsoft in VISTA and 7. Hopes this helps.

Windows 7 Home - 64 bit
Intel Proset Configuration Utility

I had the same problem...I downloaded the ProSet Advanced Enterprise Software for Windows 7 64 Bit and the Utility was there and worked fine.

This may not be the Intel GUI, but it's how I got to the intel connection configuration settings (Setting a specific MAC for duplicate SSID's).

double click on connection (network connections),
click on wireless properties
check box 'allow intel connection settings'
click 'configure'

The other GUI I found in Win8.1 was under Network and Sharing, LOWER LEFT, there is a subtle link to:
intel PROset/wireless tools, but it takes me to a tool that demands to import a profile. without importing a profile it will go no further.

windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

OK, to get the GUI in windows 8.1 I had to reinstall the ProSet utility and select CUSTOM. the default does not install the administration toolkit, and the enterprise option. with CUSTOM and checking all 3 boxes, I got the WIFI connection utility to show up in the task bar.
