I bought one of these ( TP-LINK Mini N300 USB Wireless Adaptor) and disabled the internal wifi on my linx 1010b.
Only £5 -6 on Amazon and £8.99 in Argos.
It connects at much higher speeds (144 mbps with my sky hub) and has great wifi range, get about half speed 100 feet down the garden.
No sleep issues and no dropouts.
Would recommend, it sits fine in one of the usb sockets and plenty of room to use the usb next to it.
Just plug and play with windows 10.
It does have a wps button, but I do not use that.
Shame the internal wifi adaptor is so poor, but this easily solves the problems.
