Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

Hello,

 

I recently bought a Archer T4U v3 USB Adapter, and everytime i boot my computer the driver resets from the official TP-Link Driver to a generic Realtek Driver, which causes massive packet loss in my connection making it impossible to use. Is there a way to prevent windows 10 from switching the drivers everytime i boot? The only workaround i found was to repair the TP-Link driver through the app, but everytime i reboot the Realtek gets installed again.

Hi,

 

What do you mean that the driver resets from the official TP-Link Driver to a generic Realtek Driver?

 

Have you ever installed the generic Realtech driver except the TP-Link official one? 

 

And may I know how do you find it? Any pictures we can refer  to? 

 

Did you try to update the driver or reinstall it?

 

Nice day.

Everytime i reboot the PC i get the usb disconnected and connected sound and the driver changes from the TP-Link to a Realtek. When i repair the driver with the TP-Link application, the driver changes to the correct one, and it works fine when i do that, but when i reboot the pc, the driver gets overwritten by the realtek one and i get massive packet losses with it.

I never installed any realtek driver, windows 10 installed it automatically when i inserted the usb adapter on the pc for the first time, and even if i try to uninstall this driver it gets installed again.

 

Heres the driver that gets installed everytime over the tp-link one:

 

 

And the TP-Link driver when i repair it:

Hi,

 

Please disable the automatica driver updates on Windows 10 and install the TP-Link official driver. You can refer to the below instruction: 

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-disable-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10 

 

After that,please take some time to test whether it works fine. 

 

Any updates, just let me know.

 

Good day.

@Kevin_Z I texted you yesterday, this is almost the same problem as I described In the other thread

 

The drivers needs to be fixed , they roll back and disabling windows updates can't be a solution please.

 

In my case they roll back to a generic from Microsoft that has the same iss

@KnutK 

 

Got tired of waiting and fighting with this device. I tried every trick I know.

 

I recommend all just to stop fighting with this and windows. Maybe works on OSX and Linux.

 

Never again TPLINK for me.

@L4nz This is indeed the worst product I have ever had. It's clearly a flaw in the drivers. What a crap. Last time tp-link for me as well.
