Hello expert Paul!! Could you please share with us the latest driver update for the Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe adapter? 

 

I am using the last post that I see you shared but I am not sure if it is the latest version.  (This driver update has to help me a little. The connection still drops down a little and the ping goes higher on this PC compared to other PCs running smoothly.   

 

Here's the one I'm talking about:

Hi:

 

The only suggestion I can offer would be to update the Wi-Fi driver to the latest version if you have not done so already.

 

2024.10.227.0       06/21/2022

Hi:

 

There is a newer driver for that model Wi-Fi adapter that was recently released:

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp142501-143000/sp142614.exe 

 

The above driver will install version 2024.10.227.2, 08/18/2022

Hi Paul, thanks for all these helpful replies. Would you mind telling us how you find the latest updates for rtl8821ce adapter, I mean those specific links which makes no sense to me 🙂

You're very welcome.

 

I check the driver updates for new HP business notebooks that use the same Wi-Fi adapters.

 

HP seems to do a better job keeping the drivers updated for the business-class PC's than they do for the consumer class PC's.

 

For example: I got the driver I posted above from the HP 845 G9 notebook.
