Also can you check USB bus power save mode and disable that and see if it works.
"Simply go into Device Manager, navigate down to Universal Serial Bus controllers. On each USB Root Hub item, right-click and choose Properties. Click on the Power Management tab and un-check the box for Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."

So just after a while the adapter stops broadcasting/connecting? When you pull the cable out and plug back in does it reconnect?

switching off the usb power save was the first thing i tried unfortunately.  Yeah it will randomly lose connection to the wifi, it stays enabled (as in the pc knows its there) but it disconnects from the wifi.  Most of the time it will auto reconnect.  Yeah after unplugging it will pick up the connection right away, as it does on initial boot.  It wouldn't be a big deal with it losing connection, i dont transfer files using wifi, but it's down long enough to boot me from any online game i may be attempting to play at the time. Which makes it almost unusable for me.  If it weren't for every other device in my household working fine with no issues i'd chalk it up to the router, but this device is the only one with issues of any kind.

Ok, I'll pass this on to D-Link. Thanks for the additional info. I hope D-Link can help on this.

Might review this as a side note:
"The software bundled with the AMD stuff is called "AppEx Networks Accelerator". Specifically common with Realtek NICs but also wireless."

Hello

Currently, I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro and latest drivers for the DWA-192. It is connected to a wireless router at 2.4Ghz.

Let us wait and see how long it will stay on.

Oh BTW,

I have been using DWA-192 for almost a year on windows 7 and 8. I have not encountered any issues related to yours. Its been working flawless on the latest firmware available.

Please try 5Ghz as well. I mostly connect mine to the 5Ghz radio. 890L with Smart Connect enabled.

Thank you for helping out.  ;)

Ok I disabled all PM for the USB hubs and found one for the adapter in Windows 10. Going to leave it and see what happens.

Found a setting for selective usb device power saving in the windows power settings, switched that off.  I doubt it is the culprit as i can't imagine is switching off active devices, but who knows, worth a try.

Dropped out again, managed two hours.  Out of curiosity i tried it with a fresh format/windows 10 install.  Same problem obviously.

Did you find the power setting under the 192s adapter properties as well and disable that?
I found that yesterday evening and disabled it and all PM features for the USB HUBs I found under Device Management.
192 seems stable. I'll come back today and check on it after work.

I'm wondering if there maybe a problem between the 192 drivers, Windows 10 and the wifi on the router.

Can you set Medium or Low power mode on the router and see if the adapter still drops?
Let us know if you can test a different router. I'll do the same here.

Ok, my 192 was up for 15 hours on 2.4Ghz. I left it overnight with a continuous ping to the gateway and a Youtube video on repeat.

I will switch to 5Ghz and leave it overnight.

Smart Connect enabled?
Is your Power Management features for USB HUBs and the adapter enabled or all disabled? Mine are now.

Also a good test would be to leave the PC and 192 at idle. I presume the PC and adapter should still be connected and usable when you come back say a few hours later or next day. I'm doing this test currently.
