A few weeks ago, I installed a Linksys AE2500 wireless adapter onto my computer. It's worked fine for the past few weeks until today.
When I turned on my computer, I could not connect to the internet at all. For some reason, the adapter would not identify my network. I've tried uninstalling the software and drivers that came with the adapter itself. However, when prompted to insert the adapter into a USB port, I did so; yet, the installation wizard refused to identify it.
I've tried plugging the adapter into other USB ports on my computer, but nothing worked. When I tried updating the adapter through the Device Manager, I received the following message: "a device attached to the system is not functioning".
I'm under the impression that something got corrupted, but I'm not sure what specifically.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
