What Is Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software

On Windows 11/10, Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software or Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software is the name of an installation package that includes Wi-Fi drivers and Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs). It intends for system manufacturers to create an application that interacts with the Intel Wi-Fi adapter and platform. This software is required for your Intel wireless or WiFi device to function properly.

You only need to install the Wi-Fi driver, not the full Intel® PROSet/Wireless package for Windows 10. However, your system manufacturer may have pre-installed Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software on your system to enable OEM-specific features.

Note: Starting with package version 21.50.X, Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software Legacy and DCH versions are in the End of Life (EOL) state.

On Windows 10, Intel PROSet/Wireless Software supports the following features:

  • IT Admin Tools.
  • Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) for enterprise security. (No longer included in Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software version 20.90 and later)
  • A set of Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) for system manufacturers to create applications that interact with Wi-Fi adapters and platforms.
  • "Profile Sync" optional feature (for Intel® vPro™ systems only).

If you belong to one of the following two user categories, you need to download Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Wi-Fi drivers:

  1. Your system manufacturer preinstalled Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software on your system.
  2. You are an IT administrator and need one or more of the above features.
