    I am currently ruining windows 19 version 1607. When attempting to upgrade to windows 10 version 14393 I got the following :

    Interesting first sentence: "I am currently ruining windows 19 version 1607".
    It appears there are no Linksys drivers for it and the latest Win10 also has no drivers, usually provided by the hardware maker/vendor:
    http://www.linksys.com/us/support-ar...icleNum=148503
    According to the dates of the downloadable files it is rather old in the computer field. Can you plug the computer into your Router/Modem using an Ethernet cable?

    Windows Feature fail, wants device driver removed THAT DOES NOT EXIST


    Linksys AE 1200/2500 802.11 Wireless LAN Dongle: This device is incompatible with this version of windows and must be removed before Continuing

    Problem is THIS DEVICE IS NOT there. While I did have this wireless there the very first time I tried to install.
    I then removed it, removed all references in hidden files, registry.... Cleared all caches, ect ect ect

    It is almost certain there is a file somewhere that microsoft writes to indicating incompatible devices,
    No where on the internet and certainly NOT on the Micro$oft web site, heaven forbid they ever answer a question with a correct solution.
