We do onboard with SecureW2, but only in the past 10 months and it's encouraged, not required.

Did you have to request a custom report from SW2 support for this?  I don't see that info available
in the standard report templates and they also a 2 month window.

Are you doing any kind of onboarding?  We were able to generate a report of driver versions for our client base from SecureW2, for example.

We currently have the Wi-Fi 6 extensions disabled because of the Intel
Driver issues
(https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.intel.com%2Fcontent%2Fwww%2Fus%2Fen%2Fsupport%2Farticles%2F000054799%2Fnetwork-and-i-o%2Fwireless-networking.html&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cfs%40WPI.EDU%7Cbc693525d46e464edc2308d74cafd52b%7C589c76f5ca1541f9884b55ec15a0672a%7C0%7C0%7C637062190393581783&amp;sdata=PPsyPwaUPetmfINaNm1FZVxnaI8DN9ydJ%2BA704MhLwM%3D&amp;reserved=0)

We've been notifying clients and were updating drivers until instructed
to just turn off Wi-Fi 6.
This begs the question of trying to identify the problematic machines
and seek them out, or
just announce a future date to turn on Wi-Fi 6 and go back to dealing
with updating drivers as
they come up.  We'll have a mix (currently ~15% Wi-Fi 6) of AP models
for a while, so the issues
won't all show right away.

Anyone looked into identifying the machines needing updated through
fingerprinting
(Aruba Insight or Airwave or Clearpass ) ?
