Windows 10: Meritline Airlink101 Wireless N 150 USB Adapter software needed

    Meritline Airlink101 Wireless N 150 USB Adapter software needed


    I installed Windows 10 on a computer today and I am trying to get connected to the internet.

    I have the USB hardware dongle but unfortunately the disk with the software is at a location 300 miles away. I can't find the download on any website.

    I have the files on another computer but I am sure the installation makes changes in the registry that I can't find.

    Is there any way I would be able to download the software from a source you have? (A link to the files on your web page?)

    Meritline is not the manufacturer. Have you tried searching for the drivers? For a cheap Chinese adapter, you may want to get one that is supported. There is the Rosewill adapters that use known chipsets and have support for them.

    I thought this was what I needed. Downloaded it and ran Setup.

    This is the error message: Sorry ! We do not support this operation system !!

    I know the hardware works with Windows 10.

    Right click on the setup.exe > select properties > compatibility troublehsooter

    Edit:
    That's a really old driver, but should be able to install with Win7 Compatibility. According to one of the readme's it's a Realtek RTL8192SU chipset. No guarantee it'll work, but you could try a newer driver from the MS Catalog for Win8 - Microsoft Update Catalog

    If the hardware is not recognized, nor can you get a driver to install, go get a known USB wireless adapter from a known company. The biggest issue with those stub adapters, is that the signal gets blocked too easily.
