    As a workaround you could get a cheap USB Wifi dongle. Other than that, try getting the drivers from the chipset manufacturer's page (you'll have to find out what chipset your Wifi card uses, be it Atheros, Broadcom, Intel or something else), they might be newer and work better with Windows 10. Also try letting Windows find the drivers itself through Windows Update if you haven't done that.

    Generally there are 3 ways to get Wifi drivers, either from the wifi card manufacturer's website, from the wifi chipset manufacturer's website or from Windows Update itself, they will all likely be different drivers as the chipset manufacturer will have more generic drivers that are designed to work with every wifi card using that chipset, the wifi card manufacturer's driver will be made to work only with that specific wifi card or with a range of their wifi cards, and Windows will just try to find the one that matches your card (but won't neccessarily find the latest version, which would more likely be on the wifi card manufacturer's or the chipset manufacturer's website and could work better)

    You'd actually be surprised how compatible Boot Camp is. Apple did a lot of work to get the best possible performance to run Windows (even 10) on a Mac.

    Really, just use a PC with OSX Niresh or iATKOS. I have OSX ML2 iATKOS on my Optiplex. You don't need an expensive Mac to create software for OSX.


    Im aware that it is Very compatible, but really...Not the best way to Use Windows (Any Version). I mean, if you have a Mac or MacBook, than yeah, using Windows on it is great, but not ideal for all Everyday Situations! (ex: Gaming, or anything intensive....Unless your doing Homework or Internet-browsing, or even Coding; That would be considered a More Lite, and Simple Everyday Use....Like what you Grandmother would be doing.

    Hackintoshes are very picky with what hardware they use, and on top of that don't always have full software compatibility. Ask me how I know :P

    Program Manager (Progman.exe) and File Manager (Winfile.exe) are still working (with some patches) on Windows 10 :P

    PS: Look the group windows with aero (basic) style :creep:

    This is a driver issue not an OS issue the default driver for Broadcom devices is very bad and drops like described even on ethernet controllers, find out the hardware id of your controller and download the latest driver.

    Actually Mac nowadays uses hardware nearly identical to regular PCs. As far as I know, the only difference is that Macs have no BIOS, if it wasn't for that Boot Camp wouldn't even be necessary. I don't see any reason why Windows wouldn't perform well in a Mac, hardware-wise it's just a glorified PC.

    It's probably because Windows Update downloaded better drivers.

    If you have apple hardware just download the bootcamp drivers, otherwise I can send you the drivers that I eventually got working

    I've been getting audio stutters since upgrading. They seemed to disappear for weeks, until last night. I did a malware and virus check, and cleaned up. Maybe that caused these stutters. I hope so, and this is without the Realtek HD driver.

    Personally I don't see Windows 10 being all it's cracked up to be, that's just me though.
