  1. Wireless USB adapter problems since upgrade to 10 anniversary


    After the same grief I had upgrading to 10, I was finally able to upgrade to 1607 (anniversary version). My wireless usb adapter worked flawlessly for internet access all through the update, however once completed, and it restarted to the 1607 update, my usb adapter went south. I uninstalled the driver (Netgear WNDA3100v2), and tried to re-install from the DVD, but at the point that it said to attach the device, I was left with the window to wait that the application was proceeding. After 1/2 hour, I had to reboot. Then went into the Device manager, where this driver did show and went through the re-install. After several minutes, received an error that it could not install. Figuring a new adapter would work, purchased a Linksys WUSB6100M, with the same results. Windows doesn't recognize the adapter when plugged in, and cannot install the software as it just stops 1/2 way through it. Tried re-booting but again nothing. I now have no internet to see if a Windows update would provide a driver. Disgusted with Windows 10, once again.

  2. After Win 10 upgrade my Dell 1703 Wireless adapter has LIMITED function..using usb wifi adapter to access DSL

    After Win 10 upgrade my Dell 1703 Wireless adapter has LIMITED function..using usb wifi adapter to access DSL

    Adapter worked with Win 8.1 but has only shown limited function after Win 10 installed.

    Must used USB adapter to gain access to DSL ..

    Anyone found a fix...

    I have uninstalled , re-installed, checked drivers, etc...

    Since DSL was fine until Win 10 upgrade I assume this is a windows problem>>>

    Thanks

  3. windows 10 updates and anniversary update and Linksys AE1200 network adapter incompatibility

    As the Linksys AE 1200 network adapter driver was not compatible with the Windows 10 Anniversary update and Linksys had no driver update in the foreseeable future and reinstalling the driver in compatibility mode did not solve the issue I purchased a D-Link
    Wireless N300 USB Adapter installed it and the problem is now solved and I have downloaded to the Anniversary update. Thanks to everyone who tried to help.

  5. After spending hours upgrading to 1607 and having my wifi usb quit, just rolled back to 1511 and immediately it came right back up. Obviously, a major problem on 1607 with usb wifi devices. Will upgrade later, after Microsoft provides a fix for this.
