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

Intel Pro/Wireless Utility installed but not found

Hi Guys,
On windows 7 64-bit with 4965AGN card I installed the Intel Pro/Wireless Utility for it. On the tray it doesn't seam to apear at all.
I tried searching it and I couldn't find it. Could anyone tell me if they ever had that working on Windows 7? (my wireless works fine but I wanted to manage it through the Intel utility).

Many thanks in advance.
Alex

hi Chev65,
Thanks for you answer.
The Intel PROSet Wireless application is not there (see attached). I think I'm really dumb and don't see it.
In the taskbar there is also nothing (did show all icons).

I would really appreciate if you could help me telling me what's the shortcut of that exe so that I could start it from RUN.

Thanks
Alex

You might try the Intel site and try to re-download the software. You may have only installed the drivers but not the software last time you tried.

hi Chev65,
This: Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows 7 64-Bit* is what I have downloaded. It reads 'Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows 7 64-Bit*'
I did uninstall and install already a few good times (same thing) but yeah ... it's crazy as I don't get anything.
Could you please would you be able to give me the shortcut of exe? May be I have it somewhere but it's not working who knows.

Many thanks for all your answers.

Hi Chev65,
I tried the documentation first and it's all for wired cards (at least that's what I have seen) and then the 14.8.3 drivers are the same for wired NICs. I'm on wireless card 4965AGN (not much luck).

May be the disable windows network control would work but I don't know how to do that in Windows 7. Could you please can you let me know how to do it?

I'll that and reboot the laptop and see if the stupid wireless client application will be loaded.

Many thanks
Alex

Ok I was reading that incorrectly in your first post, sorry about that.

According to the directions a new tab should have been placed in your Device Manger so you can access the software. It might be worth while to look around in Device Manager for that software.

Here is what I see. Kinda of the same thing what I have in the Programs.
I remember very well that in XP to use the application I had to make windows 'give up' management rights to be able to manage with Intel Utility. If you could tell me how I could do that in Windows 7 I think it might just work as well.

Thanks
Alex

The user guide is old and shows how to do it in XP, not sure if it will work with Win 7 but worth a try.

To disable Microsoft Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration as your wireless manager:
1. Click Start > Control Panel.
2. Double-click Network Connections.
3. Right-click Wireless Network Connection.
4. Click Properties.
5. Click Wireless Networks.
6. Verify that the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings is not
selected. If it is, clear it.
7. Click OK. This confirms that the Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless utility is configured to manage
your network profiles.

hi Chev65,
There is nothing like 'use windows to configure my wireless network settings'. It's strange .. they changed it a bit on Windows 7 and may be they don't allow that anymore something (my 2 cents).
Would you can if you would do a connect session with me and I'll be sharing my dekstop to you and you could check yourself?

thanks
Alex

PS. I know I'm already asking too much but I won't die asking at least.

Try going here.> control panel>choose catagory then Network and Internet> Network and Sharing center> left collum > change adaptor settings>right click on the wireless connection and choose properties then choose configure, then advanced.

You can get there much faster from the Device Manager.

6. Verify that the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings is not
selected. If it is, clear it.
7. Click OK. This confirms that the Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless utility is configured to manage your network profiles.

Not sure if you will have the option however. I sure don't have any options there anymore with Windows 7.
