Losing network connection-ethernet or wireless

The network adapter on my Dell Inspiron One 2330 is a Qualcomm Atheros AR 8161. The latest driver is one from 2 years ago (there is no newer driver) and with Windows 10 it breaks the internet connection either wired or wireless after 10 20 minutes. This results in all other computers on the network losing their network wireless connection. Is there a replacement network adapter that is NOT the Qualcomm I have and works in W10? I have even disabled the ethernet connection in the Bios but the result is the same. I know this is the problem because if I don't put on my Dell all day, the wireless network works fine on my laptop, my wife's computer and her Ipad! Any ideas? THANKS
