This update broke my wifi. Been trying other drivers for the last few days with no solution.
No issues with my WiFi (5Ghz or 2.4Ghz) ? I use a Linksys WRT 1900ACS with DD-WRT firmware
Sorry, not my wifi router, but the wifi on the SP7 itself. The wifi hardware isn't recognized and trying to install drivers again hasn't helped. It just errors out.
