It seems like each time I do the windows update for my "Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - Network - Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI NIC", when I restart i get a blue screen saying DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Any suggestions on how to fix this, or should I just stop downloading the update?

Stop downloading the update. If you are having networking issues that you think can be resolved by a driver update, either go to your manufacturer's website for an updated driver, or go to Realtek's site directly for the same thing.

I never use Windows Update for drivers....this kind of stuff happens alot. Just do critical updates and get drivers from the associated manufacturer.
