First, I hope I am using this forum right. Let me know if I am not.
Can you please explain this? Did you plug in 3 USB LAN Adapters into the USB ports on your Router?
Yes. I was testing the Internet speed for all three devices, but I was unaware that conflicts might occur.
Or 3 adapters plugged into one laptop?
Also Yes for the same reason
Or on 3 different laptops connected to your router?
No, I only have one laptop
You should not have put in 3 adapters at the same time to one device, that would cause a collision conflict. Thanks for the info. I will be careful next time.
Unplug all USB devices to your laptop. Done
Put one Orico USB LAN Adapter in your laptop, If it comes up with a Virtual CD drive (ie) K:
open the K:
drive and explore it. Is there a Setup.exe
file in it? If yes, this is the driver to install the device. Double click Setup.exe to install the driver. The drive would not open
If you want to start over, with the Orico USB LAN Adapter in, Press the Windows
and choose Device Manager
. In the Device Manager Do you see any devices with Yellow Flags? If so, it is probably your LAN Adapter, Right click and Uninstall
No Yellow Flags
If no yellow flags, under Network Adapters,
is the LAN adapter listed? No
If so, Right click and Uninstall
it. It may also be listed under U
us Controllers, Uninstall
it there too. Not listed there either.
In File Explorer, or This PC, if you still have a K:
or other Virtual CD drive, Right click that and choose Eject.
This will remove the Virtual CD drive.
Eject did not remove the K drive from File Explorer. Tried a number of times and closed and reopened File Explorer but no change.
Remove the LAN Adapter from the computer and restart the computer. When the computer comes back up, plug in only 1 Orico adapter and reinstall the driver.
After I rebooted I could not see the CD-ROM in Device Manager, so I scanned for changes and the CD-ROM showed up again.
I don't know how to reinstall the driver after I uninstall it, because the device no longer appears in Device Manager and if there is a driver file, I don't know whagt or where it is.
I went to My ASUS and checked for driver problems, and it says I have one, but does not say how to fix it.
