Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 Won’t Connect After Windows Update

Issue – After Windows Update your computer can’t connect to WiFI. No matter what you try – existing working connection (it was working an hour ago!), a new network like a phone hotspot or an open public connection, try to forget the network and re-add existing network, reboot, reset adapter, Windows troubleshooting… all of them, a no go.  All WiFi access points will accept your password but then quickly report a connection error. Because – Windows update replaces the Linksys driver with a RealTek driver, that doesn’t work.

Solution – Get that Microsoft @$%& outta here!

  1. Download the LinkSys WUSB6300 driver
  2. Go to your network driver properties in device manager
  3. Click Update Driver
  4. Widows 7 – Choose Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
  5. Locate File > navigate to your WUSB6300 driver download
  6. Select netrtwlanu.inf
  7. Click Open
  8. Select Network Driver Linksys WUSB6300
  9. Click Next
  10. WiFi!
