There's no driver for Windows 10, or at least I couldn't find one.

I think going back to windows 8.1 is the only solution left for me. Thanks for the help anyway.

I had the same issue, and just got it fixed yesterday. I had looked several times for driver updates, and each time i got a message saying I had the latest version. I finally called the Microsoft tech line, not really expecting any help, and they walked me through the fix. When I searched for driver updates, the system gave me two options: "Search this computer for updates" or "Search this computer and search online for updates". I chose the second option, thinking it would be better to search both places. The woman from the tech line had me use "search this computer", and 2 updates popped up, one from Microsoft and one from Qualcomm. She had me run the Qualcomm update, and it has worked fine ever since. I'm not sure what happened originally; I guess when I did the 8.1 update, the computer downloaded the driver update but for some reason didn't run it. Try that, and good luck with it!

I have Qualcomm 3.0.2.201 driver and it kinda works OK, but the range is limited. It's like the adapter is running on 30% of its capabilities and it really bothers me. Is there any new solution for this problem?
Thanks!

Try set your IP manually instead of DHCP.

and try update your driver from here : https://www.atheros-drivers.com/qualcomm-atheros-downlo...

After update, try using DHCP setting. Hope it helps.


Problem solved! I installed the Windows 10 64-bit driver from this link and after disabling and re-enabling my wireless card (no reboot), my download speed instantly went from <5 Mbps to about 40 Mbps, and my upload speed went from <0.5Mbps to about 5Mbps. I too had the default Windows driver installed with the Windows 10 upgrade clean install.
