Problems with BCM43142

Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I'm experiencing problems with my WiFi connection regularly. Especially after the upgrade to Windows 10. 



Suddenly not able to use the Internet Browser, a yellow exclamation mark at the WiFi icon which says Limited Connectivity. After a few seconds, the computer freezes. No minidumps present at the C:\Windows folder.


Things I have tried:

1. WLAN driver update.

2. BIOS update

3. Fresh install of Windows 10

4. Fresh install of Windows 8.1 (which was installed when i bought the laptop)

5. Installed a previous WLAN driver (version

6. Disabled the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

7. Tried the laptop on a different WiFi-network.


I'm out of ideas. Does any one have a suggestion?
