Random BSODs after clean windows install.

I have came across this annoying BSOD issue ever since I re installed windows. According to blue screen viewer it is caused by athurx.sys. I have learned this file is tied to bad drivers for my TP-LINK TL-WN721N WiFi adapter. However my drivers for it are already at the latest . I feel like the BSOD might not be linked to the WiFi adapter as it has worked flawlessly before. Attached is SF Diagnostic zip folder. Maybe you guys can help me out . Thanks in advance.

Hey

We have lots of ppl here asking for help... please be patient ! Bumping the thread after 15 min of posting is not going to help.

Anyways... Based on the three BSOD's.... all of them point to athurx.sys... which like you said is the TP-LINK TL-WN721N WiFi adapter...

The next thing you could do is update the drivers.. but this also as informed by you is the latest..( I presume this is what you updated TL-WN721N_V1_111121)...

Since the BUCKET_ID: X64_0x50_BAD_IP_athurx+9f3bb ... says BAD IP.... let first try resetting TCP/IP stack
1. Click on start > Run
2. type in cmd
3. type netsh int ip reset C:\netsh.log.txt in the command prompt
4. and then type netsh winsock reset in the command prompt

Reboot your system and then let me know if it BSOD's

Thanks for the help! Sorry for being impatient. I have put in the commands in cmd. Now I just have to wait and see if the problem is fixed.

Hey sorry for replying in such along time. I haven't had any issues till today playing a game with many people in one server. I feel as if the system only BSODs when there is a high usage of internet. At this point I'm considering just getting rid of the wireless adapter and switching over to a power line adapter. The TP-LINK Drivers are just no good .
