After giving up on my Belkin Wireless G USD network adapter and its terrible BSOD gremlin, I decided to buy a new one. Lo' and behold I found the Rosewill RNX-N1.
It seemed to work at first using the driver
Windows automatically assigned it (802.11n USB Wireless Lan Card), but when I tried to connect to our homes network (WPA-AES) it acted as if the password was wrong. Naturally, I checked whether or not this was true, but it wasn't. Next I tried installing the driver and utility program that came with the adapter (v1.4.1
). It would connect, but during stressful use (downloading a large file for longer than a minute as opposed to simply surfing) the utility program along with Windows' networking service stopped responding. Neither could be closed through the task manager. I tried to install the newest driver from Rosewill (v1.5.1
), but I'm still getting the same problem. Any suggestions?
