    Thanks for link to the driver.

    While Intel wireless diver 21.30.3.2 worked perfectly on a 5+ year old MSI GS60 2PL with a Killer AX1650 installed(notebook purchased from Ken at Gentech) as did all previous drivers but version 21.40.0.1 from an Insider Preview build update did not work on the GS60.

    I'm happy to say that this Intel wireless driver version 21.40.1.4 works well on the MSI GS60 2PL with a Killer AX1650 installed.

    The driver has also been installed on my desktop that has a Killer AX1650 in a pci-e x1 add in card.

    Hello guys, anyone getting constant issues with their Bluetooth?

    Mine will turn off/uninstall itself, I think the latter because device manager will not show Bluetooth device.


    I will have to reinstall the Bluetooth driver and then the next 12 hours it will disconnect and I have to repeat the same process.

    The killer website states this is issue with windows 10, wanted to know if anyone found workaround yet?

    New In Latest Insider Preview

    Most new driver downloads available are optional installations now as well as the Killer software.

    In past Insider updates older drivers have been installed over newer ones from previous builds and Killer software was installed without consent.

    In the newest build released yesterday is Intel Bluetooth version 21.50.0.1 as optional installation

    For anyone interested, I have installed the Killer AX1650 in my Alienware 17 R1 (via mpcie to m.2 adapter) as well as my Alienware 13 R3

    I dont have a Wifi 6 network right now, but I get about 585/585 to my cheap Archer C router, and oddly enough I no longer have issues with disconnecting to my router vs the Broadcom AC WLAN card that was installed previously.

    Though I cant pair my ps4 controller via Bluetooth anymore, and I cant remove the old pairing either.

    I've uploaded the new Intel Bluetooth driver files,version 21.50.0.1, to my Mediafire account for members who wish to give it a try.
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/9owlbehokfsvvfk/BT21.50.0.1.zip/file

    These files were extracted from my computer's Driver Store so there's no exe file.Your Intel BT driver needs to be updated through Device Manager using these files.

    Enjoy

    I think you just answered the question - that you can stick a wifi M2 into a normal M2 slot correct? Reason being is that the M17 R2 with the soldered wifi is quite a bother but the ability to surrender one of the M2 slots to a wifi card would overcome the stupid solder choice. If I read you correctly, that is possible. If it's not too much bother would you have a link to the adapter you used? And I'd be curious if you ever got the BT to work...

    Thank you :)

    I use RAX80 with AX200 in my XPS 15 9560. It mostly works fine at 2.4Gbps. But from about 2 months ago, some driver issue started acting up, it will cause inconsistent speed, and most annoying of all, driver reset. Sometimes, it will simply cause internet drop that's long enough to get me kicked out of a game, which is infuriating enough, other times, it will cause the driver to reset completely and thus require a full restart to start working again. I may have a solution to reduce the occurrence, though I'm still testing. But it seems Diagnostic Policy Service will still try to fix correctable issues and cause high CPU usage from time to time. Really have no clue what exactly is going on.
