Is this the driver you downloaded (the one for the one you posted):
Downloads - Drivers and Firmware - MediaTek

The Win 8.1 driver should work on Win10.

Why do you need that specific driver version for your network card?

When it drops off and you see the yellow icon, right click it and click troubleshoot - what does the results say the issue is?

Hi How old is the router! My router started dropping me and I had to get a new one. Took my old one to Staples and they told me they don't test routers. Got a new NETGEAR.
No more drops!! Routers go bad. Normal life 5 years or less!!
