Annoying Driver Problem

My wife's laptop has suffered intermittent WiFi disconnects ever since we moved.  She hates to "bother me" with problems until she gets RIP roaring mad.  While trying to figure out the problem, I noticed the Broadcom AC drivers were out of date.  Since we use ac band with the new router,  I think I found it.  To be sure I wrote a batch file that pings, verifies that the ERRORLEVEL is 0 and loops.  If ERRORLEVEL is >0 (meaning the WiFi is now disconnected) it stops with a Fail message.  I will run it all night.

The intermittent disconnect is gone and the highest data rate is now reporting 60MB/sec. instead of the promised 50.
