windows update keep reinstalling old version of ethernet card driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using a laptop acer aspire 4752g bought in 2012

    And I upgrade to windows 10 about 3 months ago.

    since then my internet became very unstable

    it disconnect very often especially when playing games.

    //

    I finally found out the problem is my ethernet card driver,

    Its produced by Broadcom (BCM57785)

    the old driver version is 15.6.0.14

    and I manually upgrade to 17.2.0.0

    which windows update suggest me not to installed.

    and my problem was fixed, internet became to usual.

    //

    see their website for my driver: 

    http://zh-tw.broadcom.com/support/ethernet-nic-netlink-57xx

    //

    and here's the new problem

    when checking new upgrade,

    the windows update will reinstalled the old version of my ethernet card driver(15.6.0.14)

    which will caused internet problem.

    //

    Is there any way to stop windows update from reinstalling the old version of my ethernet card driver?

    or will microsoft release the new update to fix this?

    //

    sorry for my poor english.
