Can you uninstall the software, and uninstall any drivers from Device manager. Then remove the wireless drivers from the driver store using RAPR. Download the driver here. Disable the Kaspersky firewall (windows firewall should also be disabled). Remove the ethernet cable. Then reboot into safe mode, install the driver, reboot into safe mode again, then plug in the usb adapter.
How you doing?
Well, wish I could tell you that the problem with my wireless adapter is solved. But unfortunately it is not. I followed your instructions above and the results turned out to be the same like if I where installing with the software disc. After I have rebooted back into safe mode the 2nd time around like you said I had noticed in Device Manager something called Network Controller not installed. Well, I ended up installing that when I rebooted windows normally and via online. It so happened that the Network Controller turned out to be Realtek RTL8190 802.11n Wireless LAN (Mini-)PCI
In Device Manager/Network Adapters, what I did not uninstall and correct me if I should have or not are Marvell Yukon 88E8071 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, and Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter. Those two I left alone. The others with the RealTek names I uninstalled.(just thought you like to know). In RAPR I deleted all the drivers that had the name Network Adapters.(2 of them that is). Was it just those with the name Network Adapters I just should have deleted? Or where there other drivers too, that I might have missed?
The USB Wireless Adapter in Device Manager is being recognized however it still reads Not Connected in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections of my computer. Every part of the installation went fine with no problems what so ever. However it's still like there's something blocking an connection wirelessly. That's what I think, that maybe there is some sort of blockish beyond my thoughts/of what I can think of.
Either way. Thank you for the link/drivers you have provided me. I was hoping this time we had nailed this problem of a sucker. But not to be yet again. I hope to hear from you again soon and see how we can tackle this issue once again.
