    thanks for info, i did the same uninstall and reinstall and version 16.8.04 was installed not what you have vrsion
    drivermax tells me 16.8.04 is te latest version, please could you add attachment in a zip file the driver you are using? that would be helpfull

    BTW i saw on broadcom website a new driver for windows 10 version but the driver does not work either
    so last hope to test your driver if you sent it to me, thanks

    I had a similar problem, my driver updated on it's own recently, and was not working.
    The newest driver available at Broadcom did not work either.

    I thought i'd share a solution that worked for me.

    A simple solution, was to go to the driver information in the device manager and select "rollback driver"
    It went back to the previously working one (which happened to be, and it worked fine again) and in a instant (didn't even need to restart) it worked.

    I'll say though, netwrok adapter drivers are the worst thing to stop working... cause you can't just go an get a new one :P

    I guess i'll wait 'til they update the driver again, and try it again when they do.

    My Machine is a 4 year old Dell XPS 8300. I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 back in the summer.

    This is an issue for me a well. My fix that I found from searching is to use the old Windows 7 driver. My driver is dated 7/20/2010.

    I still have an issue though with disconnects. Sometimes every few days. Sometimes a couple times a day. However, the Win 10 driver does not work.

    Forgot to add that you need to first delete the device, then use the new drivers uninstall tool to unistall the old driver (don't use the uninstall in control panel) then install the Win 7 driver in "compatiblity mode" Win 7.
