This can be worked around by booting into safe mode, installing the driver from there, then linkx choosing the driver through device manager it still picks the crash-y version if you don’t Bigger problem, at 5GHz, this device is only compatible with channelsanything in the range, also permitted in Europe, is unusable. False dawn – the next time the boot took over 10 minutes again, showing that ‘doing something’ animated circle for ages at the stage where it was trying to connect to wifi.

I’d give you the model but i’m not near ew-7171in main system at the moment.

The customer support is worth far more than five stars and is light years ahead of some other companies.
