Does the adapter exhibit the same problem if you test on a windows 7 PC if you can?

My Method probably will never be approved by dlink mods, but it works,
and have been using dwa-182 usb3 revision on windows 8.1, no issue.

Key is,
dwa-182 c1 is using realtek 8812AU chipsets just like every single one of USB3.0 AC adapter in the market (up to today).
So if you saw other brand usb AC adapter and it's USB 3.0 there is 95% chance its using realtek chipset 8812AU just like dlink dwa-182 C1. e.g (linksys WUSB6300, asus USB-AC56, amped wireless ACA1, edimax EW-7822AC)

Same chipsets meaning use the same driver.

Here is what you need to do:
1. you need to uninstall d-link manager utility -> ****py utility, you don't need this to connect/find wireless networks, just use built-in windows one.
2. download this driver, this is latest driver from realtek released by edimax for EW-7822AC: http://www.edimax.com/images/Image/Driver_Utility/Wireless/NIC/EW-7822UAC/EW-7822UAC_1.0.1.4.rar
3. extract it, dont install it/run setup.exe (otherwise it will install those ****py utility again).
4. open device manager, find dlink dwa-182 adapter, right click select properties, then select update driver
5. Browse it to folder where you extract driver EW-7822UAC_1.0.1.4\RTWLANU_Driver\(select folder with you windows version and 32/64 bit).
6. Windows will find the driver and install it automatically.
7. done
8. browse/find/connect wireless network, use native Windows dialog for it (on charm bar).

If you curious, when you chose "let me pick my driver manually", you get to see a list what device this driver support, you will find our dlink DWA-182 is in there, of course, cause this driver comes from realtek for distribution to all manufacturer that is using realtek 8812AU chipsets.

hope that helps.

I just used these steps for my DWA-180 on Windows 8.1 since I was experiencing this Issue just recently, works great after doing this, Will update if Issue persists in the Future. Thank you, demarton.
