Hello all you handsome folks,
I just recently switched back to Windows 10 for my work. I don't want to say I'm regretting it, however it's getting there at a fast pace.
Outside of dud fans, networking issues, random spats of my monitors just turning off and on again (all of which I have now fixed.) I'm now dealing with at least 2-3 BSOD's a day, which is unnacceptable for a computer I need for work.
So I've done my own research and narrowed it down to the Broadcom 802.11 Network Adapter wireless driver.
Now I've gone ahead and done what everyone has recommended I do and uninstall the adapter via my device manager under network adapters, fully removed it. I replaced it with drivers from my wireless card provider Asus, for my wireless card model and everything, of course.
Now when I go to check on the adapter under device manager it no longer says Broadcom 802.11 Network Adapter wireless driver. It says Asus PCE-AC68 802.11ac Network Adapter.
Seemed like a solution to me, remove the problem driver and replace it with a driver made by the manufacturer of my wireless card. Apparently not.
Came back to work today and my system threw another seemingly random BSOD when I tried to access my NAS drive downstairs.
So! I'm going to drop off my error details with you lovely folks and hopefully you can point me towards the solution.
Thank you very, very much for any help you may provide!
