Windows 7: WUSB600N + Win 7 Auto-Installing Own Drivers

WUSB600N + Win 7 Auto-Installing Own Drivers

I use a Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter and I'm having a problem with it. Every time my adapter is detected, Windows 7 installs its own drivers which are terrible. I can't even install the drivers I want! I have searched everywhere but haven't any luck for solutions. I've even tried installing my drivers over Windows', but that doesn't work well. I have Windows set to "Never install driver software from Windows Update" but it still does.

The setup.exe for my drivers requires the adapter to be plugged in to finish installation, but I can't do that with Windows' drivers inevitably going to install first. Nor can I manually install drivers with the Device Manager if it also requires the adapter to be plugged in. I'm guessing the DriverStore is causing Windows to auto-install these faulty drivers?

I would greatly appreciate any help/advice!

first of all, welcome to the board.. You can go to "My computer/system properties/Advance system settings nest go to the "hardware tab/device installation settings" and you will see something like this, select the best option for you, restart the system. Unistall your current driver and go ahead and install your own driver file.

best regards

Thanks for the welcome, Martin. But I've tried that before as I mentioned somewhere in my first post and Windows is still auto-installing its own updates.

how about unistalling the driver then restart on safe mode to apply new driver?
