- Connection Loss with WUSB600N
This article explains how to fix connectivity loss issues when using the WUSB600N.
My WUSB600N always restarts when I plug in another USB device, such as a storage device, a card reader or camera into another USB port.
Each time I open or eject my CD/DVD drive while I am using WUSB600N, it disconnects itself from the network.
To resolve the 2 scenarios, complete the following steps:
Method 1: Uninstalling from All Programs
NOTE: If you are using Method 1, please continue from Step 4 onwards after Step 1 and Step 2.
Click on the button, and click on All Programs.
Look for Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter and select Uninstall.
Method 2: Uninstalling from Control Panel
Click on the button, and select Control Panel.
On the Control Panel menu, double-click on Add or Remove Programs.
When the list is shown, search for Linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter and click Change/Remove.
Wait for a while it is preparing to uninstall.
Click OK to uninstall the device.
After uninstalling, safely remove the WUSB600N and restart your computer.
When your computer restarts, plug in the WUSB600N into the USB port. When you see the Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard, select Yes, this time only.
Insert the WUSB600N driver CD into the CD-ROM drive and select Install the software automatically (Recommended).
NOTE: If you do not have, or have lost the CD, you will need to download the driver. To learn how to download the driver, click here.
NOTE: Wait while Windows is searching for the driver.
On your computer desktop, you should be able to see this Wireless networks detected pop-up. Click the balloon to select your wireless network.
When you see a list of available wireless network, select the name of the network you would like to connect to and click Connect.
Type your Network key in the Network key and Confirm network key fields, then click Connect.
You are now successfully connected to the wireless network with your WUSB600N.
