Solved!

Re: Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCle Adapter is experiencing driver- or hardware-related problems.

HP Recommended

Hi Paul, I've been having issues with this model of adapter (like many others) as well. It seems mostly fine but sporadically my connection will drop for about 1-2 seconds which has been annoying. Does the driver version you linked above work for any model of HP computer? Just as I checked the drivers for my desktop (M01-F0026na) and the latest driver is only 2024.0.10.215. Also wondering where you get the latest driver from as it would be good to see any release notes/fixes as well.

 

Alternatively, as I don't have much faith that the latest drivers will make too much difference, would buying a USB wifi adapter solve the issues as then I wouldn't need to use the Realtek one? Do you have any recommendations if that's the case?

 

Thank you for your time.

Hi:

 

The driver I posted will work on any PC with that model wifi adapter...desktop or notebook.

 

Here is the full description of the driver with the release notes.

 

2024.0.10.217   Aug 10, 2020

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp107501-108000/sp107515.exe

 

Description:

This package contains the DCHU driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8188EE, RTL8723BE, RTL8723DE, RTL8821CE, RTL8822BE and RTL8822CE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook and desktop models running a supported Windows 10 or Windows 10 Cloud operating system.

Fix and enhancements:

- Optimizes the Wireless LAN scanning mechanism.
- Provides support for Windows 10 v1803 and later versions.

- Provides the following drivers:
Realtek RTL8188EE/RTL8723BE, v2024.0.4.208
Realtek RTL8821CE/RTL8723DE/RTL8822BE/RTL8822CE, v2024.0.10.217

 

This dual band USB AC wifi adapter looks pretty good.  It has a faster throughput than the RTL8821CE adapter has.

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/VIVIOO-Adapter-1300Mbps-Wireless-10-9-10-15/dp/B08HRH8N4Z/ref=sr_1_1?crid=J...

 

Then you can still use the Bluetooth on the Realtek wifi card and use the USB for wifi.

You're very welcome.

 

Hopefully the driver update will work.  It has for a few other forum members.

I installed the 2024.0.10.217 version and then later that evening, HP Support Assistant popped up and said there was a 2024.0.10.218 version so I installed that as well. It does appear to be fixed thankfully.

Thanks for letting us know the driver fixed the problem, and that there is an even newer driver out there.
