If you're encountering problems with your Linksys network adapter, you must have installed an old or incorrect driver. To resolve this, you can uninstall your existing driver and reinstall an updated one. You can reinstall it by performing the following troubleshooting steps:
On the Start Screen, right-click the lower left portion to open the shortcut list and click Device Manager.
Look for Network adapters and click on the Flagbutton to expand. Right-click on the Linksys adapter and click Uninstall.
NOTE: In this example, the Linksys AE3000 is used.
On the Confirm Device Uninstall window, check Delete the driver software for this device then click OK.
After reinstalling the driver, restart your computer and check if the driver is properly installed through the Device Manager.
