      looks like intel is going back to the drawing board πŸ™‚

      No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created IT- AE

        Note: Intel(R) Chipset Device Software uses an unusual date
        for the devices it is targeting. The date 07/18/1968 is
        symbolic – Intel was founded that day. The reason this
        date is used is to lower the rank of Intel(R) Chipset Device
        Software.
        This is necessary because it’s a supporting utility that
        should not overwrite any other drivers. Updating Intel(R)
        Chipset Device Software is not needed – do not worry if you
        don’t have the latest version.

        There are a lot of search hits where this has been discussed but it seems that the info originates from the driver’s readme : https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29685/eng/readme.txt

      Your machine has slipped into a time warp πŸ˜‰ and I’m wondering if you should contact CERN. πŸ˜‰

        Funny thing I am just getting this update today. 12/08/2021. If this article is written more than a year ago I wonder why It has taken my PC to get this updates when I do manually updates once a week.

        I think your right Cern ( or some weird Agency)Β  may have something to do with it as they will need ( working) access points to hop on that years networks for communications.

      Might be time to finally upgrade that old Intel 4004 processor, eh, Alex? πŸ™‚

      I thought so as well, but will wait some more.

      In 1968 I was writing banking programs in machine code to run on a room sized NCR 315 mainframe computer.
