    Blame the companies and their drivers. In fact, it's only a matter of time until the Huawei bsods. I've seen it plenty of times and they don't have updated drivers.

    I advise to get a proper ISP subscription that gives you an external modem that you can attach your own router to. Then connect your lan ports of your pcs to your router.
