Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17655 for Skip Ahead

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17655 (RS5) to Windows Insiders who opted in to Skip Ahead.

What’s new in Build 17655

Mobile Broadband (LTE) connectivity on Windows gets a makeover

Windows is transforming the networking stack after 20 years through the Net Adapter framework. This framework introduces a new, more reliable, network driver model that inherits the goodness of the Windows driver framework while bringing an accelerated data path.

In this build, we are introducing a new and improved Mobile Broadband (MBB) USB class driver based on this Net Adapter framework. We can’t wait for you to try out our new driver in the latest RS5 Insider Preview builds.

If your PC supports Mobile Broadband, i.e., your PC relies on cellular network for connectivity, and you want to help out? Here is what you need to do:

Step 1: Ensure your PC can support SIM cards and USB modems (either over the internal USB bus or using a USB dongle for cellular connectivity).

Step 2: Install this build (Build 17655 and higher) and setup cellular connectivity.

Step 3: Choose the Net Adapter based MBB USB class driver as default driver.

• Go to Network Adapters -> Generic Mobile Broadband Adapter or xxxxx Mobile Broadband Adapter in Device Manager.

• Right click and choose update driver -> Browse my computer for driver software -> Click on Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer and click next.

Choose Generic Mobile Broadband Cx Net Adapter -> Click Next.

Note: Follow the instructions in Step 5 to revert to the default driver(xxxxx Mobile Broadband Adapter), in case of issues with Net Adapter driver(Generic Mobile Broadband Cx Net Adapter).

You are all set. We are excited for you to try our driver!

Final Step: For Internet access, try using cellular network primarily by turning off Wi-Fi
