Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 fails to notify Windows 7 when the SSID changes. The result is that the wireless interface retains the previous and possibly invalid IP addresses and other settings. The latest driver, A11, only a few days old, isn’t helpful at all.
I usually avoid installing Intel’s own utility for managing wireless connections, as I feel this should be left in the capable hands of the operating system and the driver. Maybe I should think twice about that.
The current solution is to manually force Windows into releasing and renewing the IP addresses after switching to a different SSID.
@echo off ipconfig /release ipconfig /release6 ipconfig /renew ipconfig /renew6
