Intel confirms Windows 11 BSODs caused by Wi-Fi driver, but a fix is now available | Laptop News

Intel has confirmed that a recent problem causing Windows 11 to crash with a blue screen of death (BSOD) was an issue with its Wi-Fi driver. Fortunately, Intel has already released a fix to resolve this problem. Additionally, Intel has published Bluetooth version 23.30 with stability fixes. But let’s first discuss the Wi-Fi update.
