Question: windows 10 wifi

Two brandnew iMac 27" with Windows 10 x64 via Bootcamp. Wifi is terrible and a continues ping shows time-out when using browser (IE and chrome). Browsing via ethernet is ok in Win10. When booting in iOS internet performs well via Wifi and Ethernet. Problem is probably in wifi-drivers, but none of all suggetions found on the www results in a solution.


Apple or MS please provide a solution.

Answer:
Answer:

I used older drivers from 2016 from Broadcom v7.35.317.3 and connection is currently ok !!


The .73 drivers were auto-installed from ISO of from Bootcamp final setup. I am not able to revert to previous driver in the NIC so that would suggest there was no update. But you never know what happens.


Thansk for your suggestions Loner T.


Apple Support could not provide solution and forwarded the issue to MS.

Current version (windows10) is Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter 7.35.118.73


Also Apple Magic Mouse is not connected. Sometimes after 10 minutes, sometimes after 10 times on/off. Really not stable.


I used the W10 ISO NL version. Can W10 NL version contain different wifi drivers than EN version? I will try

if windows update has updated the driver then I would revert to the bootcamp tested driver you made on the usb stick in bootcamp app in osx


each time I've let windows change drivers to "better" ones I experienced issues

If you have a 2017 Mac, it may not support the installation of .68. Did you get .73 from the Bootcamp drivers package?

Check


  • BT/WiFi collaboration is enabled or Auto
  • Power Management disallows turning the device off for saving power


What type of wireless network are you running into issues with with - 802.11n 2.4g, 802.11n 5g or 802.11ac? Also check width of the channel (20mHz/40mHz). Do you have the same issue every where or only at specific locations?

Please test .68, if possible. .68 favors 802.11ac, while .73 favors 802.11n/20mHz. If you are using a Technicolor eRouter, check the RF configuration and channels. 2.4g can be problematic in crowded RF environments.
