I would recommend staying with the OEM driver.
The package 16.5.3 does not contain a driver for your adapter, the same goes for 16.6.0. The list of supported adapters appears at the bottom of the page for each package version.
Thanks Joe, yes now I see the supported adapters ...... I missed that
The package behaviour fooled me. It installed the ProSet tools and looked to be installing the wifi drivers (as indicated on the installation status).
If you can make any change for the future, I'd throw a visual warning of a unsupported adapter. That way there would be no confusion.
I will certainly communicate your suggestion. Thanks!
