One of many crashes on this system I have total buyer's remorse on. Can I start an "I hate Lenovo and will never ever purchase another ThinkPad" forum? If this system crashes or goes into one of its many issues while I'm working on a project one more time I might just throw it out a window.

That error is related an issue with an Intel Wireless card driver and the Microsoft Windows Operating system.
Try updating the drivers for the Intel Wireless card from the link below and see if the problem goes away. One of the fixes mentioned in Intel's patch for their card is related to Blue Screen/crashes, so hopefully this will address your issue.
Be sure to pick the correct Windows OS running on your system and then choose Networking:Wireless LAN form the Pick a Component pull down to locate the driver.
You can also keep drivers up to date using ThinkVantage System Update
Hope that helps.

I run system update regularly, there was no indication of any driver update needed. After looking at the most recent driver update on the Lenovo driver update page, I see I installed the latest version 2 weeks ago. So, nothing wrong on my end from what I can tell.
I won't ever buy another Lenovo, period.

I know that you are frustrated, but you are kind of barking up the wrong tree here.
While true that Lenovo makes the laptop, Microsoft make the Window operating system that is thowing the error, and Intel makes the wireless card, and the Netwtw04.sys driver that is reporting the error, so you need to address those if you want to find a solution to your problem.
If you did just get a new driver, then you can verify that by checking the version currently installed
Another thing to do would be to run a Windows CheckDisk of the hard drive just to make sure that all the files are in order etc,
To Run CheckDisk
Checkdisk will scan the hard driver for any errors, and if so prompt you to run it again in Fix Mode, which will require a reboot.
To run in Fix Mode
Check Disk will run prior to Windows loading the next time you reboot your laptop.
Hope that helps.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 that downloaded the WLAN driver version 18.104.22.168 and caused me to start having the BSOD. I reverted back to driver version 22.214.171.124 via Device Manager and the problem was fixed. I do not know if Intel and Microsoft know that this driver is causing serious crashes on Windows 10.

I get this error approx once a month.
Based on what is said by JDGillis at https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/W550s-driver-irql-not-less-or-equal-Netw... url, I checked the Intel Wireless driver update status on my laptop. The driver is up-to-date. Below are the details:
Network adapter: Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
Driver version: 126.96.36.199 date 7/14/2016
JDGillis: Can you please suggest me what should I do to fix this issue?
