Uninstalling Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software also removes the Wi-Fi driver of the Intel® Wireless adapter. As a result, you can't use the wireless adapter on your computer. We only recommend uninstalling the driver as a final troubleshooting option. You shouldn't uninstall unless directed by an Intel technical support agent.

If you must uninstall, download the latest Wi-Fi drivers before starting this process.
