    Yeah that is what I have been trying to do lately. Although, the driver does not appear to be as far out of date as I thought. I have looked on realtek's website but have not found anything. I found a driver for an RTL8188EE, but I wasn't sure if it would work since mine is RTL8188CE. I have seen some drivers on other websites, but I am not sure if they are trustworthy, they also do not show support for W10.

    I am honestly considering just buying a a really small usb wifi adapter and disabling the internal in the device manager. They are fairly cheap, if i need a fast connection I usually plug in ethernet anyway. The noise drives me nuts.

    Also, I honestly would rather not go through the process of clean installing windows 7. I do not know my product Key, it rubbed off the bottom of my laptop. I know there is other software I can use to get that key. I honestly like windows 10 and want to find a way to get my system working on it. I am almost 100% sure using a usb wifi adapter with the internal one disabled would fix the issue. I just wanted to try and get it working as it should before i go spend money on something my laptop should already do without issue. Thank you all for your feedback, it has been very helpful. Please keep giving me suggestions if you have them.

    Win10 Home x64 - 1709

    Yea, I hear ya. I doubt your gonna find a newer one, but you could try an older one just to see.

    Microsoft Update Catalog
    about halfway down the page, the Win 8 ones (x32 & x64) from 7-11-2013


    Edit:
    Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter Drivers Download for Windows 10, 8.1, 7, Vista, XP
    These are the only other ones I see and they are older, but not as old as the ones on MS Catalog.
    2nd and 3rd down (NOT the 1st one
    I've used/tried drivers from there before, but I DO NOT use the setup.exe. I just extract them to their folder and install them thru Device Manager. So use at your own risk

    Wow, I googled for days and never ran across this.. I'm definitely going to try these tomorrow and see what happens. Fingers crossed one of them works.
