Well Microsoft are recommending updaiting Wireless hardware firmware. Appears will default to hardware in Windows Low state.
No chance on my laptop. Maybe look at USB Wireless. When dust settles.

The worst part of this is problem has already been fixed.
802.11w (2009) : IEEE 802.11w-2009 is an approved amendment to the IEEE 802.11 standard to increase the security of its management frames.

Yep the fix for this problem existed in 2009. But next nothing uses it. Only handful of Pro WiFi kit.

I'm waiting to see if TP-LINK will update the firmware for my wireless modem/router (TD-W8968).

'Sir, please,' she said ... 'Will you not share your wisdom with us?'
'I have no wisdom,' he told her.
'Your experiences, then?'
'They have been trivial, uninteresting, and full of error.'

Why would they?
Unaffected TP-Link products:

Routers and gateways working in their default mode (Router Mode) and AP Mode

Affected TP-Link products:

Routers working in Repeater Mode/WISP Mode/Client Mode:

Thanks. I wonder why they are unaffected. Surely, they have to negotiate session keys like any other bit of kit?

Routers generally do it properly and do not allow key reuse.
