    While updating to Windows 10 I received this error message: Lynksys AE1200/2500 802.11 Wireless LAN Dongle This device is incompatible with this version of Windows and must be removed before continuing. I no longer have Lynksys on this computer and can find no files associated with Lynksys. Windows 10 installation is paused.

    :)
     

  2. I'm downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, and it's telling me my AE1200/2500 Wireless LAN Dongle is not compatible.

    It also addresses the full name as "Lynksys AE1200/2500 802.11 Wireless LAN Dongle", just to make it clear. Anyway, is there a way that I can update the dongle to be compatible, or is there any other adapter I can buy that would be compatible? Any ways
    to fix this?

  3. Windows 10 Upgrade Linksys Dongle Error

    Hello, I am trying to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1 64-bit. I am using a Dell Precision T3610. I have attempted 5 times, and keep getting this message:

    Lynksys AE1200/2500 802.11 wireless Lan Dongle Device is incompatible with this version of windows and must be removed before continuing installation.

    Interesting that Microsoft misspells "Linksys" as "Lynksys." But I digress.

    I don't have this dongle attached to this computer. In fact, the computer is connected via Ethernet cable to a Netgear wireless hub, which is connected via Ethernet cable to a Linksys cable router. I have attempted attaching the cable directly to the router
    with the same results. I inherited this computer from a friend who passed away, and it's possible he was using a wireless dongle. I can't find any drivers on the system, but maybe I'm not looking in the right place. I'm looking at "devices and printers"
    and "device manager" but don't find a Linksys driver anywhere.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Windows 1607 Update installation problem

    I have been trying to update my Desktop for several weeks now. It always gets to Preparing to install updates 32% and stops with a dialogue box stating that "Couldn't install Windows.

    Lynksys AE1200/2500 802.11 Wireless LAN Dongle. This device is incompatible with this version of Windows and must be removed before continuing."

    Note - I did have a Linksys AE1200 (note different spelling of Lynksys) on the PC and have since exchanged it for a D-Link 2500 dongle. I removed the Linksys device and software from my system. There is no trace of a Lynksys or Linksys on my Drive. However
    Windows thinks there is!

    I understand that this may be a certification issue - but I do not have this device on my PC.

    Help
