    It's been working well for me.

    I have Killer AX1650 in a desktop and a notebook.

    On 4 of 5 drives in these 2 PCs the program was run on clean Windows 10 x64 installations including 2 Insider Preview builds as soon as Windows completed installing.
    1-Run Disable Killer from Windows Update
    2-Restart
    3-connect to The Internet and run Windows Update.

    On the other drive it was a 4 step process.
    1-Scan for and then remove Killer Software
    2-Restart
    3-Disable Killer from Windows Update
    4-Restart

    No Killer software has been installed when using Windows Updated.Preview builds get updates on a weekly basis and no Killer software is installed or offered for installation.

    That's the point, it was working well for me up until ~4 days ago, when WU forced a Rivet Network package that also brought back the Service.

    Running the uninstaller (I've tried rebooting and not rebooting between each step) only provides temporary relief. Eventually, the service comes back via WU.


    I should also note, WU is also forcing an older .6911 Intel IGP driver, even when I had .6912 (later, I also had .7000) installed. It's really annoying, to say the least. Because of this, I am willing to blame some strange Dell policy, but my PC is a clean install (new, non-Dell SSD) from a 1903 install USB. Oh, well.

    Windows Insider Preview installed Intel Bluetooth driver version 21.40.0.1

    I've uploaded it to my Media fire account linked below for all members to download and update their current driver.There is no exe file so this is for updating through Device Manager.

    I just ordered a new AX1650 from ebay. I hope the range is better from a intel 8260. I am not really looking for more speed, just more range.

    i can only say that after upgrading from a 7265ac to the AX200, both range/signal strength and throughput have easily doubled :)

    i think the 7265 and 8260 where about the same range, speed wise, i think the 8260 was abit faster. Like you say, it its double the range, I am going to be a happy dude.
    Is the AX200 the newest one.
