    Wifi keeps dropping after Creators update


    Computer did automatic update to Creators update 2 days ago and ever since my wifi keeps dropping internet every 5-10 mins randomly. I cant find any updated drivers for my laptop. I am using Toshiba C55T-A5102 with a realtek RTL8188EE wireless lan . I have disabled the wireless lan , uninstalled the the wifi card and reinstalled in device manager, rebooted router, but still it drops randomly. Any tips would be great . Thanks

    Hey jscarano,
    What's the driver date ?

    You can try ...
    Device Manager > The Realtek rtl8188ee Properties > Power Management > Uncheck the Allow Computer to Turn Off This Device.
    Different driver from MS catalog.
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    Do other devices drop as well? If not, use an older driver to see if the issue is resolved.
