Why do windows 10 updates always result result in my Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller needing an update?

So everytime windows 10 updates, my internet speed drops to beyond useable. 0.2 MBPS. I've figured out....after months and months of testing various updates and routers... that this appears to be due to the update for my PCIe family controller.

Once the update is complete I'm back up to 350mbps.

Getting that update downloaded however is a test of ingenuity and patience. I really despise having to go through this each time. I get that the updates are necessary for security and everything. Just seems like it shouldn't have this greater effect over something clearly so vital for internet speeds.
