How to install Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Bluetooth® technology

Bluetooth® high speed (HS) gets its higher speed from the 802.11 radio protocol. The inclusion of the 802.11 protocol adaptation layer (PAL) provides increased throughput of data transfers. The Intel implementation is based on the Bluetooth® 3.0 +HS and Bluetooth® 4.0 +HS standards and supports both Microsoft Windows 7* and Windows 8*.

Three components are required for Bluetooth® HS features and function with Intel wireless adapters.

  • WiFi (Intel)
  • Bluetooth® HS (Intel)
  • Bluetooth® Stack (Intel or third-party)

Supported Intel wireless adapters
Bluetooth HS is supported on the following Intel wireless adapters with Microsoft Windows 7* and Windows 8*:

  • Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
  • Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 72602   
  • Intel® Wireless-N 7260
