    Iobits Driver Booster helped out, updated the RTL 8188EE, I later used Driver Easy, it said 5 drivers were out of date, only 1 of the 5 installed and that was for the RTL 8188EE. Graphics, Realtek HD Audio, Intel Thermal Dynamics and Network Frame Participant, and forget the other, windows came up saying the best driver is already installed for them.

    As mentioned a thousand times before, using these so called driver updater programs is bad juju. 99% of the time they tend to do more harm then good by installing drivers not needed. Although there are those that never have an issue using them. The best practice it do download the the driver(s) from; if an OEM from their support webpage, custom build from the mobo's support page or the hardware's support webpage. This way the known drivers from their respective webpages have been tested to comply (work) with said hardware.

    I was having issue with WiFI, showed being connected all the time, when I was downloading, it would download, stop, download, stop, it did that where the time for downloading would rise to 6hrs. A few times downloads failed with message of not connected to internet when the WiFI icon showed it was connected. Windows update installed driver for the RTL 8188EE, it would connect but no internet access. rolled back. Iobits Driver booster, installed driver dated 6-14-2017 which worked better than the latter two. Driver Easy downloaded newer driver, dated 11-4-2017. my downloads are under 2 minutes.
    Have a bar and grill, 3/10ths of mile away here, I can connect to their guest internet at a 15% signal. those other drivers wouldn't allow me to connect to it.
    I am using my sisters internet, she about 3/10ths a mile away, signal is 20% and very stable. a 20% signal and downloads under 2 minutes, those driver updaters helped me out.

    My experience has been that at times, Win 8.1 drivers from the OEM site work best (particularly wifi). Windows seems to always say the best driver is installed even though performance is lacking.

    Super Fly, hard to find a Native Texas woman, Texas is the 2nd most populated state in America, I left Dallas, TX cause of the HIV epidemic there. CDC reported 80% of Dallas county has that virus. moved to small town, so far I only meet people from California, Chicago, New York, nobody says they're Native Texans. people move here first words they say is " I'm a Texan".. yea right, I am native of Texas, I am 1/3rd Caddo not Cherokee.

    My bad. My comments were in reference to those that upgraded to Win10 from Win8.1.
