Howdy,
G551JM's wireless and bluetooth driver is old, as usual, Asus, never updates its drivers until it has a critical preventing issue!
Well 2 questions here:

1. The above driver should work for my laptop? It HAS Intel Wireless and Bluetooth.

2. I just install above, there's no need for separate installation of Bluetooth driver? It will cover both?

Cheers.

Nevermind, maybe the quality of Asus laptops are OK, but their service qualiy is below zero.
I cannot believe Asus support told me use generic 3rd party drivers!

They claim they released Windows 10 drivers:

The only Windows 10 driver releases in above link is Touchpad! Excellent!
And this is their response:

Dear Omid,

You may use windows 10 updates or you may also search for third party drivers. If you have any other concern please let me know.

Thanks and Regards,

Brand new as of yesterday. I already had the 18.12.0 installed and actually had one before that that I just went into device manager and selected the wireless card and update driver, automatic and it downloaded a driver that was more recent than what was there but not as recent as whats on intels site.

Dont beat up ASUS over it. They didnt make the wireless card, it outsourced from intel. I never look to the PC OEM for drivers for anything, Dont care who it is they are always outdated. Same as going to Nvidia for the latest graphics drivers, you wont find those on ASUS website either nor will you find it through windows update.
