    Wireless adapter drivers will not install


    Currently using an Asus PCE-AC68 Wireless adapter which works fine. Just upgraded to PCE-AC88 which I installed into the same PCI-e socket I had the AC68 in. Computer does not recognize the AC88 in Device Manager and the driver install .exe will not execute so no install wizard available. Removed the AC88 and plugged the AC68 back in - immediate wireless connection again. I have downloaded the latest Asus driver package plus two older versions but none of them will execute. Win10x64 Home is totally up to date as of this morning. I have attempted the driver install in both Safe Mode and Clean Boot mode without success. I have run sfc /scannow which repaired a file and DSIM which was clean but these did not solve the problem. So now I am stuck. Any suggestions please?

    :)

    Wireless adapter installation.

    Hey. I just wanna make this short and sweet. All I wanna know is why I can't install/update wireless adapter drivers on Vista 64 bit but it works on 32 bit? On my wireless adapter box, it doesn't say Vista compatible (only XP and 2000) but if 32 bit Vista works, 64 bit should. Because when I do a fresh install of Vista for an example, all I do is update the driver in device manager then I'm on the net but with 64 bit it don't work. And how can I find out the manufacturer of my wireless adapter? Or brand etc. It came in a BT box, a small one. Just says Wireless USB adapter. I dunno if BT has a driver section.

    Unable to install Linksys wireless adapter(dual band)

    Hi Mona,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    1) Are you trying to install the drivers for Linksys wireless adapter drivers?

    2) Are you trying to install the drivers from the disk or website?

    3) Have you tried downloading the driver file and then installing it?
