Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi M.2 Adapter Driver Version 7.35.352.0 Slow and intermittent

hp pavillion 17-g188ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've been having issues with the WiFi ever since I purchased the notebook, but lately it's been getting unbareable.  Turning the wifi off and on, used to buy me some time early on, but now it has a hard time even connecting to the network, and when it does it ridiculously slow.  Downloads at <3Mb/sec on a100+ MB/sec broadband service.

 

Is there another driver that would rectify this?

Hi:

 

This is the latest W10 driver HP has for that model wifi card...

 

This package provides the Broadcom Wireless LAN drivers for supported notebook models running a supported operating system. Broadcom Wireless LAN drivers are required to enable the integrated Broadcom Wireless LAN adapter. 

 

VERSION: 7.35.351.0 REV: A PASS: 1    EFFECTIVE DATE: October 25, 2016

Why it is the older driver ?    (7.35.351.0 v  7.35.352.0)

Anyway, i have the same issue with the same Wifi Card and Driver version, but on the different model (Envy 15t-k024tx) and the Broadcom Wifi Card Driver is missing at the driver download page on this model

Installing this driver did increase my signal strength, but not by much.  An improvement is an improvement.

Which driver version you are talking about? @yourpchealer

Ver 7.35.351.0 or 7.35.352.0 ?
