Got it! Thanks so much! Is there a guide for recommended settings on the advanced section? I have a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro, and it seems to take a while to re-connect when waking up.

The default is usually sufficient for everything :) You have the options to tinker with it and test since not everyone got the same router or WiFi capabilities. You might get increased bandwidth or increase connection stability or even both ;) All you have to do is test if you got the free time to do it :)

@phill @Solaris17 @Mussels , can you unlock this for them?
:)

sure. OP and second post unlocked.
Am I am thankful for you guys. I really appreciate it and thank you for your time to even consider helping me. :)

I can now edit my second post but just a small problem...the main post I still don't have the option to edit. I am thankful anyways.

FYI - I've had the driver installed for several days now, and I have a recurring issue with the driver. I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Pro. Several times a day, after the PC comes up from hibernation, the wifi is completely unavailable and the driver is not loaded. Looking at device manager, I see "Device PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_C822&SUBSYS_C12317AA&REV_00\00E04CFFFEC8220100 requires further installation.", but I also see this for the standard driver.

If I restart, or remove the driver and re-install, wifi becomes available again. If I remove the driver and use the stock driver, the issue goes away.

I would like you to test this one for me.. does this one fixes your issue? Please let me know and report. Thank you for your time and for spending the time to report the issue. Please make sure to remove any previous realtek drivers you installed before installing this fix driver.

It's installed - I'll let you know how it works over the next couple of days. What did you change in this one?

I had the original driver installed from Lenovo since yesterday, and not one hiccup. Setting power management to not allow the computer to turn it off resolved a number of other issues in both drivers on my laptop. By default, the power management tab is now hidden in Windows 11, so you need to enable it.

Used the ASPM [Active-State Power Management] patches from Microsoft and merged them to Realtek 8822CE driver while replacing/merging all OEM/Vendors patches. If you faced any kind of issue let me know since I will be using this fix on the next drivers.

According to my testing this fix tested it on my 4 laptops that I have.. All of them got 8822CE WiFi and all went without any kind of issue. Thank you for your time!

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device, but still couldn't start the service. A reboot fixed it.

I will work into a fix today and send it to you. Looks like it is related to standby mechanism.

Here is it, This should never happen with you again. I have made adjustments related to standby functions that should make the driver function properly during standby/active sessions. Make sure to uninstall previous driver and install this one on the attachment of this post. Thank you for your time :)

Just to be clear for everyone use it at your own risk
Let me say it again... use it at your own risk

The drivers that I will be providing it to you today are only made for Realtek 8822CE Wi-Fi module chip that is present to almost all OEM/Vendor laptops [Mostly on AMD based laptops]. Unfortunately stock drivers locks down any advanced features available to the user and doesn't allow you to have full control to your Wi-Fi chip capabilities.

Only compatible with PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_C822&SUBSYS_081011AD and PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_C822&SUBSYS_42111A3B but I will try to add more on the future if the time allows.

Today I present you my so called "Unlocked" or "Unhidden" drivers by editing .inf files to be able to makes those options visible to the user. Alright here we start... I have the confidence to share my modded driver for Realtek 8822CE which enables advanced options and might provide extra networking performance as well.

Let me show you the options that the stock drivers provides...

And now my modded drivers which provides unlocked or unhidden options
View attachment 205779

The changes that is made are renaming the Wi-Fi display name (to distinguish between official drivers and modded ones) and added/edited lines on .inf file drivers to unlock Realtek Advanced features*.

Installation:-

Since modifying drivers will cause the drivers to be unsigned and hence you need to disable Driver Signature enforcement on Windows. How to do that? Follow this link... https://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-driver-signature-enforcement-windows
  • After you disable Driver Signature enforcement.. Download the file.. extract it's content and then go to "Device Manager" and navigate to "Network Adapters".
  • By then on Device Manager you should find your Wi-Fi driver named something like "Realtek 8822CE...." double click on it and choose "Drivers" Tab and click on "Update Driver".
  • A new windows will pop out … choose "Browse my computer for drivers" and then choose "Let me pick from a list...." by then click on "Have Disk..." and click "Browse" and navigate to the extracted content that you downloaded.
  • Click on "netrtwlane.inf" and then press "Ok" after that press "Next".
  • During the process of installing the driver it will pop up a warning... choose "Install this driver software anyway".
  • Reboot your computer after all above step is done. And you are Done :)
You can enable back Driver Signature enforcement without any issues by following the same link that I provided above.

*I can't guarantee every single feature will work but I can say that it did provide increased network performance and slightly lower latency according to my testings.

Will this work on desktop with Windows 11 home?

Yes - that's what I'm running it on. I did go through the mod to enable the power options for the wifi driver - it's hidden by default.

Installed it 2 days ago - driver just crashed. Had to uninstall and reinstall. I think I'm going to go back to the stock driver. It was fun testing it!
