I have installed Windows 10 (version 1709 build 16299.309) on my MacBook Pro 2017 model through Bootcamp.
After Bootcamp installed its drivers, I am unable to connect to my Wi-Fi router most of the time. Whenever I try to connect to the network, it will fail 95% of the time with the unhelpful message "Can't connect to this network".
When Windows is trying to connect to the network, the network sort of "resets" (icon goes red momentarily in the taskbar and the Wi-Fi connection in Network Connections goes disabled momentarily) just prior to it failing (almost as if the network driver crashed or something).
When it does manage to finally connect (after attempting numerous times), the end result could be any of the following:
- Loading a page in Edge or attempting to access the Internet in any way will crash the system. Sometimes it will blue screen, other times it will just freeze for 20s then restart.
- The Wi-Fi icon in the taskbar shows "Internet access" but trying to load a page in Edge will fail. I can't even access my router's admin panel by accessing the gateway IP directly.
- Accessing the Internet works.
The driver version for "Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter" is
188.8.131.52 and has no updates. Apple software update also has no driver updates. There are no Windows updates either.
Surely there are other people experiencing this exact issue? Is there another driver I can install? The Broadcom driver installed through Bootcamp is required though, the default driver included with Windows does not work. I have also tried connecting to another network (my iPhone hotspot) but the result is the same.
Update 2018/5/25 My WiFi connects more frequently now, but can still suffer from the same issues above randomly. Most of the time it manages to connect successfully on startup, and if it doesn't then attempting to connect manually from the flyout won't usually work (unless I try like 100 times).
