Linksys AE2500 wireless adapter not functioning with Enhanced USB port
So for several days ive been trying to get a wireless adapter to work on my desktop(windows 7 home premium 64bit). After a D-link xtreme N failed to function, I traded it in for a Linksys AE2500.
Both devices failed to install correctly because they could not be detected by the install setup. Manually installing drivers would not work, errors would come up.
The AE2500 would be detected when plugged in, then fail to install properly, then refuse any manual drivers. In the device manager it would be error 10, unable to start.
It finally worked by a chance of luck, when I uninstalled the ports in my USB list.
So basically it will only function if I have the Enhanced USB ports uninstalled or disabled(it also has to be plugged in at the time of uninstall/disable). Doing so will cause it to automatically install its drivers and start working(it will then immediatly nag, that the USB port isnt 2.0 high-speed and claim that its not functioning at full speed). However, as soon as i reboot the machine, or run an update, or scan for hardware, the Enhanced USB ports reinstall themselves and the Wireless Adapter gets booted back to error 10.
Does this make sense to anyone? Because every tech I've talked to has no idea.

It could be any number of things causing the problem....ie spyware, adware or malware of some type. It could be a virus, trojan or worm running rampant on your system. It could be that the device, being usb, is not being removed properly which can and does on occasions render the device inoperable or that you just have another defective device....some people just have that kind of luck. There could be some sort registry corruption with the installation of the device or left overs from previous installs. The list is endless. If all else fails a complete re-install of the OS will do the trick...just do that as a last resort. Remember to save anything you deem important...ie pictures, documents because all we be lost with clean install.
