Intel has addressed Wi-Fi and Wireless Bluetooth drivers issues causing Windows 10 blue screen of death (BSOD) errors and Bluetooth devices to lose connection or stop working.

Users are urged to install the updated Wi-Fi drivers (Intel PROSet/Wireless Software 22.30.0 ) and Wireless Bluetooth drivers (Intel Wireless Bluetooth 22.30.0) seeing that they also include security updates, besides functional updates.
The new Intel Wireless drivers address Windows 10 stop errors (also known as blue screens, Blue Screen of Death, or BSODs) and issues causing wireless adapters to fail to connect to 5GHz networks.

"When a system is connected to an Access Point using channel 165 and the Windows 10 mobile hotspot feature is enabled sharing the 5GHz network, the mobile hotspot network is not visible to other systems under the wireless network scan list," Intel added.

The new Intel Wireless Bluetooth drivers fix bugs behind Bluetooth devices causing audio noise during Hands-Free Profile (HFP) voice calls and discontinuity of audio during Teams calls.

They also address bugs leading to Bluetooth LE mice no longer working on systems with outdated driver versions.

The full list of supported products and driver versions released by Intel to fix these issues is available in the Wi-Fi and the Wireless Bluetooth drivers' release notes.

My intell drivers, which are provided by Acer, are from 2016, but everything is working flawlessly. Do I need to update? Where can I find the updates?

Just make sure to have a full system backup in case of new drivers doesn't work properly as before without any issues...
