Message:

Tweak the firmware page:
· Intel re-released the latest microcode with a sensible license, no other changes.
· I have a laptop that needs firmware both for the ethernet post AND for bluetooth to get wired ethernet working.

     68      without the updates, but probably they will work better with
     69      the updated firmware. For some modern laptops, firmware for both
