1. Download the latest driver from Intel site to your drive.
2. Disconnect the network cable and/or the WiFi connection.
3. Open Hardware Manager and uninstall the existing driver.
4. Manually install the downloaded from Intel driver.
5. Reconnect the network.
Hope this helps
OK. Makes sense, so I followed the steps, but at the end I had a slightly newer driver - 188.8.131.52, instead of 184.108.40.206; not 220.127.116.11 that I was expecting.
I can try running for a while and see if this improves my connection reliability.
But for my education - when I did step 3, I think I was offered the option to "Delete the old driver", which I didn't do, I just Uninstalled it - should I have done the Delete?
If I deleted the old Driver, would I be unable to Rollback if there were a problem?

1. You are absolutely right. You did OK. Uninstall option in HM, uninstalls the current used driver, living its package in Driver Store on you drive, while Delete option, removes driver package from Driver Store, living the currently operational devices that use its driver. So, if you have deleted the old driver instead of uninstall in order to Rollback it, you will be requested to use installation media (if it contains the old package) or to download old version from Intel.
2. The 18.104.22.168 is the driver version and 22.214.171.124 is the package version.
Thank you so much for your help and patient and clear explanation.
