    this might help

    I would suggest you to download and install the drivers in compatibility mode and run.

    run in compatibility mode:

    Search for Troubleshooting, via action centre

    d) Click Troubleshooting. Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    e) Click next, select Not Listed. Click Next
    f) Click Browse and select the Driver file that you downloaded.
    g) Click next, click Troubleshoot program
    h) Check The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now box
    i) Click next, select the last known working operating system for this driver (probably Window 7)
    j) Click Next

    Solution to TP-Link Driver Issues - No 5GHz range showing - Windows 10

    I just installed Windows 10 this week, and realized last night that my wireless adapter was only able to see 2.4GHz access points. Since I have a 802.11n router with true dual band, and it was working fine before upgrading to Win 10 (and my other devices are fine), I had a feeling it was a driver issue. Sure enough, Windows 10 applies it's own generic driver for the Wireless Adapter. What's worse, if you try to manually install the Windows 8 driver for your TP-Link TL-WDN4200, you receive an error stating that the driver is not correctly digitally signed: "Windows found driver software for your device but encoutered an error while attempting to install it.
    The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering."

    Enable/Disable Device Driver Signing in Windows 10

    Look at this page, follow Option 2. Disabling the device driver signing from the menus allowed me to then force the install the driver manually. I still received a prompt alerting me that the driver might not be valid, but allowed me the option to continue. As soon as it was done, my 5GHz networks were again visible to my adapter, and was able to connect without issue.

    Here's the link to installing a driver manually if you don't already know how to do that:
    How to Manually Install Adapters on Windows 8? - Welcome to TP-LINK
    In Step 7, the correct device was already selected, so I didn't have to browse for the device.

    Hope this helps people out there!
