    Hi,

    When I create a mobile hotspot and connect to it, it always crashes the Minix Z83, gives me the stop code: ...e3e.
    Any idea how to fix this?

    Regards,
    AndraD

    The latest driver worked.
    Excellent support, thank you!

    (One advice: Please use ZIP compression instead of RAR. ZIP is native for Win 10, RAR needs extra software. )

    this new driver doesn't change any parameters relating to speed/throughput.
