Lenovo T470 - Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 - Lenovo System Update - Wireless AC Driver Update

Hello,

 

In our organization we have a VPN client that is sensative to driver versions.  We have noticed Lenovo System Update is only updating the Lenovo T470 Wireless-AC 8265 drivers to a certain point and has stopped.  That we could tell there did seem to be a problem as previously there was a rapid succession of updates for our T470's and the wireless NICs to a certain point.

T470 - 20HES09L00

 

Would it be possible to have this driver updated?

 

2018/09/03 - v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo

2019/03/06 - v20.120.1.1 - Intel

 

 

Thank you,

Tony H.

I noticed this apparent divergence on my T480, so I manually installed the

v20.120.1.1 driver direct from the  Intel site.

 

When it got done installing, Device manager (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) reported that I STILL was using the same version as offered by Lenovo:  v20.70.3.3 - Lenovo

20.120.xx is a DCHU driver which is a new driver model from Microsoft.  Because T470 is a 2017 model that was released before Microsoft invented DCHU drivers, we have to continue support legacy 20.70.x driver branch.  Also, I think there are issues upgrading from a legacy driver to a DCHU driver.  20.70.x will continue to be updated as bugs are fixed.  I do see that there is a 20.70.7.1 version that is in the pipeline (and 20.70.x will continue to be updated to fix bugs).  But I don't currently see any plan to release 20.120.x for T470.

Hello,

 

 

Fair enough on the DHCU, can we just get the lastest 20.80.xx.xx update done then?

 

 

Thank you,

Tony

As I told you, T470 is on 20.70 branch.  There is a new release in the pipeline but I'm not sure about the exact date.
