    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

    :)

    no wifi driver in Network Adapter

    After I update windows 10 to Windows creator, my laptop wifi is dropping consistently. Then, I recovery to prior version, but wifi driver is gone from Network Adapter. I want to get the Wifi driver back, but don't know how to do that.

    Thanks for any help

  3. Wifi keeps dropping out (after Windows 10 update)

    "The idiot suggesting Ethernet, We did not buy a Laptop/Notebook to become a Desktop. We did not buy a Laptop/Notebook to become tied down. "

    Not everybody is working on a laptop buddy. Branding someone an idiot because they found a solution that doesn't work for you is just rude and uncalled for. For me, switching to a powerline internet adapter made a problem
    that had been bogging me down for a year go away. I also get the full 100+ mb/sec speed that my modem is capable of. Wifi never gave me a third of that speed.

    Sorry, sounds pretty smart to me. Perfect internet that never goes down. For me, I'm kind of happy that I didn't solve it on that computer because this is a way better solution for ME.

    Hopefully Microsoft will be able to solve your problem but please don't judge people that you don't know, just because they found a solution that doesn't work in your particular situation...just saying.

    Wifi keeps dropping after Creators update

    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

    Driver date is 5/31/2017. I have the allow the computer to turn off device turned off. It was still dropping last night still. I'll try that driver page from MS catalog and see if that will help. Thanks

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