    Fall Creators Update makes wifi network driver useless

    I have an Archer TP-Link AC 1750 PCI-E dual band wireless adapter (less than 2 years old) and it has always worked with Windows 10, until now.
    I became aware of a potential problem with Insiders 16288 which was the first I installed that broke the wifi connection, and then and subsequent insider releases all had the dreaded yellow exclamation mark.

    I have been to the TP-Link web page and I have downloaded the latest drivers for windows 10, for this card and others, but with no success.
    I have uninstalled, removed the driver, reinstalled, tried windows update, tried the trouble shooter, tried various other TP-link drivers, and cannot find a driver that works.
    It seems odd that a so called Windows Update can break something that has always worked.
    Anybody got the same issue or any advice on a driver that may work?
    I'm now stuck with an ethernet cable running across the floor.
    I'm also reluctant to buy a new card as the one I'm using is "Windows 10 Compatible" but that was until yesterday.

    Hi skcusime,

    Couple more to try,
    1) from within W10 drivers
    Realtek semiconducter (2) >> Realtek RTL8812CE and 8822BE

    Asus sell that Adapter, they have drivers but only up to W8!!

    Thanks Hawkman, but no-go with RTL8821CE and 8822. Installed but "Windows encountered a problem. The device cannot start" same old message.

Has anyone installed it yet? If so did it break anything for you? Debating If I should update or not.
