    Most of the dump indicates a problem with athw8x.sys.
    Code:
    BugCheck 133, {0, 501, 500, 0}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for athw8x.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for athw8x.sys
    Probably caused by : athw8x.sys ( athw8x+299e6a )
    This belongs to Qualcomm Atheros AR938x Wireless Network Adapter dated 28.01.2016 10:52:54.

    It would be nice to try a newer driver but I don't find one. You can try uninstalling it from Device Manager then reboot and let Windows rediscover it and reinstall the driver, see if that heps.

    First thank you very much for taking your time to help me. I did some searching and found this:
    Download Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver 10.0.0.341 for Windows 10
    Wouldn't that be a newer driver?
    And am I right in the assumption, that if this doesn't fix the problem getting a different wifi-adapter will eliminate the problem?

    That's not really a Qualcomm site, it says: Unofficial Qualcomm Atheros drivers website.

    I downloaded and scanned the zip and it looks okay. Go ahead and try it.

    A different wifi card should fix this specific problem. May not fix all BSOD problems but it sure looks like it will help a lot.

    Thank you very much, I already went ahead and installed the driver few hours after writing my last post. So far I had no crashes. What other BSOD problems do you mean? Where there other drivers being an issue?

    As my grandson is found of using, "just sayin"

    All the dumps except one had that same error. The other was a hibernate related problem it looks like which could still be related to the wireless card. So a new card should fix all your are currently seeing.

    Quick update:
    After getting the newest unofficial windows 10 driver for the Qualcomm Atheros AR938x Wireless Network Adapter, I still kept running into BSODs, so I just bought a different Network Adapter, now everything runs like a charm.
    For anyone having a similar issue don't buy the new Adapter I got though. I got the ASUS pce-ac68 wich according to ASUS supports windows 10. Well this is a half-truth. Every driver past 2.0.8.8 is broken for windows 10 (the newest being 2.1.1.5), while I don't get any BSODs, when using newer drivers, like other people I've read about, my Internet speed goes down to speeds that were considered fast in 2002. So I've just settled for driver 2.0.8.8. Everything runs perfectly now. But that's still an issue, seeing how an update for windows could make 2.0.8.8 incompatible and I would be stuck with a wifi-adapter, that can't get new drivers. I still hope ASUS fixes the problem on their end and releases functioning drivers again.
    The moral of the story? Don't trust manufacturers when they say a PC component is windows 10 compatible, do your own research online and avoid blind trust. I wasted 80 CHF on this new adapter (roughly 80 $) and it could stop working any time, bc I blindly trusted what ASUS says on their page.

    Either way thank you guys for helping me fix this problem. I'll mark this thread as solved.
