Since the update my start menu is not opening, wifi and ethernet are not showing up and no USB connections are getting detected.The drivers in my device manager are showing up with a yellow caution &nb

  2. USB Wireless adapter not connecting to Wifi

    Hello

    I am having trouble making my new USB Wifi Adapter to work. The drivers are working fine but the issue is it is not connecting to wifi.

    1. I am using Windows 10
    2. The adapter which I am trying to work is Alfa AWUS036NHA 150Mbps
    3. I have also one USB mini wifi adapter attached to my other USB through which I am currently using internet

    From the above screenshot, the Wi-Fi 2 is which I am trying to connect. When I right-click on Wi-Fi 2 and click on Connect/Disconnect, It shows the already connected Wifi through USB mini adapter.

    When I Disable WiFi and try to connect through WiFi 2 then it shows an error "Change settings, such as making a connection metered"

    The device utility does not show any Wifi available connections though there are 2-3 wifi connection is there.

    when I try to update drivers, it says the best drivers are installed already.

    Any other solutions?

    Thanks
