USB Wifi Adapter gives corrupt downloads

I have tried a few usb wifi adapters and they end me up with a corrupt file when downloading images or large files? This also makes all my downloads on steam automatically queue.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... As you blame the Wireless for corrupt Downloads ...

Does the ethernet connection cause you issues also ? ... Do you use any Download Managers ? ...


Have you checked for Viruses and Malware ? ... Is your Connection stable or does it drop ? ..


Have you tried other Browsers ? ... Are you Drivers up to Date ? ...

It works perfectly with my ethernet cable and my default usb wifi adapter that came with the computer. But that broke so im using my linksys AES6000. I can't even join minecraft multilayer with this and can't download big files.

I cannot find the latest driver download.
In this thread: Re: AE6000 corruption - Linksys Community it gives a link but I can`t find it. The guy below says he found it but isn`t giving any link.

OK. I found and installed mediatek's driver and it is working better than ever! Everything works fine.
