Known Limitations

[UR-03785AP]

Wireless 802.11n Mode is not showing in Device Manager > Advanced Tab

Reference:

ECR168289: W8:W7:802.11n Mode is missing in Advanced tab of DM in sit

Reason:

This is by design, 802.11n is displayed as HT mode [High throughput]

Wireless-N 7260 does not detect 11ac 5GHz AP

Reference:

ECR170159: W8:Wireless-N 7260 cannot detect AC(5Ghz) AP

Reason:

This is by design, Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 card only support 2.4GHZ application. Please refer to screenshot in that ECR.

[UR-03479SG]

Wireless profiles not retaining on disconnect/Connect

Reference:

ECR130846:W8:OS:Wireles Profile doesn"t retain settings when connect/disconnect

Reason:

This is by design,Disconnecting from the UI is considered a Manual Disconnect and part of that behavior is,it resets the Connect Automatically.

Peer to Peer(AdHoc) [UR-03519AP]

-Create adhoc UI in Windows native is intentionally removed because the user can manage their network connection preferences using the connect/disconnect/forget actions in the Network flyout.

Creating adhoc networks is not supported in Windows 8. One can still connect that is in range.

Reference: ECR123006

(Windows 10) When idling the machine only the connected AP will be displayed on the network flyout

Reference:

ECR325143 Common_W10: Wireless icon GUI Only show connected AP after about 2 Min

Reason:

This is by design. For data performance reasons OS does not normally do periodic scan if already connected. Due to BSS entries aging logic, eventually only the connected AP would be seen. The OS will do a scan if the wireless icon is closed & opened.

(Windows 10) When connecting to a hidden network, the 'next' button of the hidden network will be grayed out when selecting another AP then returning to the hidden network

Reference:

ECR332699 [LG 2.0 AMD] W10: Hidden Network next button is grayed out after clicking other available AP

Reason:

Approved as permanent limitation.

(Windows 10) VPN connection on network flyout will take a long time to disconnect after disconnecting from the AP

Reference:

ECR341464 [LG 2.0 Intel] W10: VPN GUI takes long time to disconnect after disconnecting from AP

Reason: Approved as help center info.

Restriction

Wireless disable warning box appears when Gloabl switch is ON

Reference:

ECR131028:Win8:Wireless Disable warning box appears when Global switch ON/OFF

Reason:

Intel ProSet is not supported in Win 8.

Information

For 5GHz band, Indonesia allows only ch.149 - ch.161.

[UR-03478SG]

  1. Windows 8 is not supported for CCX (Cisco compatible extensions) for Realtek

    Reference: ECR123321 W8: Cisco authentication methods unavailable with Realtek driver

    Reason:Windows XP/Vista/7 is supported for CCX(Cisco Compatible eXtentions) Ver. 4.0 (Window 8 is not supported).

  2. Pop-up windows doesnot appear for WLAN credentials after PM operation

    Reference:ECR130845 W8:No Pop-up to enter WLAN credentials appear PM operation

    Reason: Working as design

  3. Dashboard is not supported in Windows 8

    Reference: ECR123621 W8:Dashboard support is missing with Intel WLAN driver G7W201WW

    Reason: Dashboard is not supported for Windows 8 OS with Intel WLAN cards

Known Limitations

[UR-03785AP]

Wireless 802.11n Mode is not showing in Device Manager > Advanced Tab

Reference:

ECR168289: W8:W7:802.11n Mode is missing in Advanced tab of DM in sit

Reason:

This is by design, 802.11n is displayed as HT mode [High throughput]

Wireless-N 7260 does not detect 11ac 5GHz AP

Reference:

ECR170159: W8:Wireless-N 7260 cannot detect AC(5Ghz) AP

Reason:

This is by design, Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 card only support 2.4GHZ application. Please refer to screenshot in that ECR.

[UR-03479SG]

Wireless profiles not retaining on disconnect/Connect

Reference:

ECR130846:W8:OS:Wireles Profile doesn"t retain settings when connect/disconnect

Reason:

This is by design,Disconnecting from the UI is considered a Manual Disconnect and part of that behavior is,it resets the Connect Automatically.

Peer to Peer(AdHoc) [UR-03519AP]

-Create adhoc UI in Windows native is intentionally removed because the user can manage their network connection preferences using the connect/disconnect/forget actions in the Network flyout.

Creating adhoc networks is not supported in Windows 8. One can still connect that is in range.

Reference: ECR123006

(Windows 10) When idling the machine only the connected AP will be displayed on the network flyout

Reference:

ECR325143 Common_W10: Wireless icon GUI Only show connected AP after about 2 Min

Reason:

This is by design. For data performance reasons OS does not normally do periodic scan if already connected. Due to BSS entries aging logic, eventually only the connected AP would be seen. The OS will do a scan if the wireless icon is closed & opened.

(Windows 10) When connecting to a hidden network, the 'next' button of the hidden network will be grayed out when selecting another AP then returning to the hidden network

Reference:

ECR332699 [LG 2.0 AMD] W10: Hidden Network next button is grayed out after clicking other available AP

Reason:

Approved as permanent limitation.

(Windows 10) VPN connection on network flyout will take a long time to disconnect after disconnecting from the AP

Reference:

ECR341464 [LG 2.0 Intel] W10: VPN GUI takes long time to disconnect after disconnecting from AP

Reason: Approved as help center info.

Restriction

Wireless disable warning box appears when Gloabl switch is ON

Reference:

ECR131028:Win8:Wireless Disable warning box appears when Global switch ON/OFF

Reason:

Intel ProSet is not supported in Win 8.

Information

For 5GHz band, Indonesia allows only ch.149 - ch.161.

[UR-03478SG]

  1. Windows 8 is not supported for CCX (Cisco compatible extensions) for Realtek

    Reference: ECR123321 W8: Cisco authentication methods unavailable with Realtek driver

    Reason:Windows XP/Vista/7 is supported for CCX(Cisco Compatible eXtentions) Ver. 4.0 (Window 8 is not supported).

  2. Pop-up windows doesnot appear for WLAN credentials after PM operation

    Reference:ECR130845 W8:No Pop-up to enter WLAN credentials appear PM operation

    Reason: Working as design

  3. Dashboard is not supported in Windows 8

    Reference: ECR123621 W8:Dashboard support is missing with Intel WLAN driver G7W201WW

    Reason: Dashboard is not supported for Windows 8 OS with Intel WLAN cards

Known Limitations

[UR-03785AP]

Wireless 802.11n Mode is not showing in Device Manager > Advanced Tab

Reference:

ECR168289: W8:W7:802.11n Mode is missing in Advanced tab of DM in sit

Reason:

This is by design, 802.11n is displayed as HT mode [High throughput]

Wireless-N 7260 does not detect 11ac 5GHz AP

Reference:

ECR170159: W8:Wireless-N 7260 cannot detect AC(5Ghz) AP

Reason:

This is by design, Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 card only support 2.4GHZ application. Please refer to screenshot in that ECR.

[UR-03479SG]

Wireless profiles not retaining on disconnect/Connect

Reference:

ECR130846:W8:OS:Wireles Profile doesn"t retain settings when connect/disconnect

Reason:

This is by design,Disconnecting from the UI is considered a Manual Disconnect and part of that behavior is,it resets the Connect Automatically.

Peer to Peer(AdHoc) [UR-03519AP]

-Create adhoc UI in Windows native is intentionally removed because the user can manage their network connection preferences using the connect/disconnect/forget actions in the Network flyout.

Creating adhoc networks is not supported in Windows 8. One can still connect that is in range.

Reference: ECR123006

(Windows 10) When idling the machine only the connected AP will be displayed on the network flyout

Reference:

ECR325143 Common_W10: Wireless icon GUI Only show connected AP after about 2 Min

Reason:

This is by design. For data performance reasons OS does not normally do periodic scan if already connected. Due to BSS entries aging logic, eventually only the connected AP would be seen. The OS will do a scan if the wireless icon is closed & opened.

(Windows 10) When connecting to a hidden network, the 'next' button of the hidden network will be grayed out when selecting another AP then returning to the hidden network

Reference:

ECR332699 [LG 2.0 AMD] W10: Hidden Network next button is grayed out after clicking other available AP

Reason:

Approved as permanent limitation.

(Windows 10) VPN connection on network flyout will take a long time to disconnect after disconnecting from the AP

Reference:

ECR341464 [LG 2.0 Intel] W10: VPN GUI takes long time to disconnect after disconnecting from AP

Reason: Approved as help center info.

Restriction

Wireless disable warning box appears when Gloabl switch is ON

Reference:

ECR131028:Win8:Wireless Disable warning box appears when Global switch ON/OFF

Reason:

Intel ProSet is not supported in Win 8.

Information

For 5GHz band, Indonesia allows only ch.149 - ch.161.

[UR-03478SG]

  1. Windows 8 is not supported for CCX (Cisco compatible extensions) for Realtek

    Reference: ECR123321 W8: Cisco authentication methods unavailable with Realtek driver

    Reason:Windows XP/Vista/7 is supported for CCX(Cisco Compatible eXtentions) Ver. 4.0 (Window 8 is not supported).

  2. Pop-up windows doesnot appear for WLAN credentials after PM operation

    Reference:ECR130845 W8:No Pop-up to enter WLAN credentials appear PM operation

    Reason: Working as design

  3. Dashboard is not supported in Windows 8

    Reference: ECR123621 W8:Dashboard support is missing with Intel WLAN driver G7W201WW

    Reason: Dashboard is not supported for Windows 8 OS with Intel WLAN cards
