    Alfa AWUS036NH Wi-Fi Adapter Driver: Publisher MediaTek Blocked?


    I have an Alfa AWUS036NH Wireless USB Wi-Fi Adapter, which has a Ralink RT2870 chip. Alfa don't have a Windows 10 driver, so I downloaded the driver from MediaTek (MediaTek bought Ralink a few years ago): http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads1/downloads/

    Their site says the driver is WHQL certified, but when I try to run it I get a dialog box saying the publisher has been blocked:


    Clicking How do I unblock this publisher? just goes to a Bing search, which is not very helpful.

    Thanks, but it didn't work. I used the PS option:

    get-childitem "D:\Downloads\Computer Drivers\Alfa Wireless\ALFA AWUS036NH (Ralink RT2870) Wireless USB WiFi Adapter\MediaTek (Ralink)" | unblock-file -confirm

    While running from CMD worked, I would still prefer to unblock the file, or at least figure out why it is blocked.

    Just a WAG here, but, probably the OS is looking for a digital signature, and either it's corrupt, expired or missing.

    Yes, but how do I fix it? I've got it with another driver now ...
