Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 Won’t Connect After Windows Update

Issue – Microsoft driver updates. After Windows Update your computer can’t connect to WiFI. No matter what you try – the existing working connection that worked 10 minutes ago, a new network like a mobile phone hot spot. You can try to forget the network and re-add it, resetting the adapter, rebooting, Windows troubleshooting… all of them will end in a WiFi connection error because Windows Update¬† replaces the functioning Linksys driver with a RealTek driver that will not work!

Solution – Get that Microsoft @$%& outta here! And revert back to the proper functioning driver.

  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!
