Acer e5-571c, atheros 956x wireless adapter issue on windows10

Hi there. This is Abdullah zafar, CEO at "blind help project". I'm using acer e5-571c laptop with windows10-1607. The drivers and OS all are updated, but still the wi-fi is not so reliable. The adapter is atheros 956x wireless network adapter. Drivers are downloaded from acer's own website. Please suggest me any other driver for this adapter properly supported on win10x64. It will be great help for me

    Hi, i've installed your given driver, and also a driver more latest then you give which is 10.0.329WHQL. Now, the slow browsing issue is about to be resolved, but connection is not still reliable. It freequently disconnected. Speciallly when resume from sleep or hibernate. I've already turning off "power management" under the device settings, in the device manager. Any other suggestion?
