Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6200 AGN wireless network card and Windows Phone hotspot problem?

Recently my work notebook crashed.  I had to reload it from scratch.  After I reloaded it I didn’t have any problems connecting to my home and other wireless networks.  When I could connect my notebook to my Windows Phone hotspot my notebook would blucscreen in 5-30 seconds.  I encountered this same problem last year and the fix this time was the same fix last year. 

The wireless card in my Dell Latitude E6510 notebook is an Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6200 AGN.  All I had to do was install the drivers from Intel replacing the drivers from Microsoft.  Once I did that I didn’t get any more bluescreens when I would connect to my Windows Phone.  I guess the Microsoft drivers for that NIC don’t like to play nice with a Windows Phone hotspot.
