    Wireless USB adapter problems since upgrade to 10 anniversary


    After the same grief I had upgrading to 10, I was finally able to upgrade to 1607 (anniversary version). My wireless usb adapter worked flawlessly for internet access all through the update, however once completed, and it restarted to the 1607 update, my usb adapter went south. I uninstalled the driver (Netgear WNDA3100v2), and tried to re-install from the DVD, but at the point that it said to attach the device, I was left with the window to wait that the application was proceeding. After 1/2 hour, I had to reboot. Then went into the Device manager, where this driver did show and went through the re-install. After several minutes, received an error that it could not install. Figuring a new adapter would work, purchased a Linksys WUSB6100M, with the same results. Windows doesn't recognize the adapter when plugged in, and cannot install the software as it just stops 1/2 way through it. Tried re-booting but again nothing. I now have no internet to see if a Windows update would provide a driver. Disgusted with Windows 10, once again.

    There are some people with WiFi problems around.
    And seems that the best are this 2 options that most sure to help:
    1) Roll-Back to previous OS
    2) Repair Windows wiht In-Place Upgrade - Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    After spending hours upgrading to 1607 and having my wifi usb quit, just rolled back to 1511 and immediately it came right back up. Obviously, a major problem on 1607 with usb wifi devices. Will upgrade later, after Microsoft provides a fix for this.
