HP Stream 5701....Upgraded to Windows 10...Upgrade went fine. WiFi drops frequently making this device almost useless....its dropping almost every 45 seconds...I connect it to Home Network...it disconnects in about 45 seconds and this cycle keeps repeating.
Went to Device Mgr, Network Adapters.....drivers...checked for Updated driver, came back Windows determined latest driver is installed.
I know this is an issue with Windows10 and the Streams Network Adapter because I have a smartphone connected to my Home Network and it never drops the wireless connection.
Hopefully someone has the answer....and fix.
What I find imaging is, the Stram maintained an wireless connection during the time it was downloading the Upgrade to Windows 10 Home, that took at lwast 15 to 20 minutes and now I cannot maintain a WiFi connection for more than 30 to 45 secs. Tried to run Windows Update...unable to complete because WiFi Connection drops.....I'll not be able to get any Updates if this keeps up.

Is this just a "I fooled You"? Or is this for real?
Just checked for that driver SP72188, and a Search of HP.com, and, searching for drivers for the Stream 7....that Driver could not be found.
Was this what you were told by HP....or something you found in a Search, if Search, please provide Link.
I was speaking with HP about 3 hours ago and they mentioned nothing about a New Network Driver.....they only referred me to the 8.1 Driver....and that driver isn't working for me now that I have Win10 Installed.
Hp has Escalated my issue.....and I wait for further contact.

Maybe someone will come up with a fix before a Win 10 driver is released... for now the Stream is sitting unused
