The next day I downloaded the Ralink software again, plugged in the turbotenna and opted to "use zero configuration as configuration utility".
I then saw that Ralink's site survey would not come up. No surprise. Now that I WANT Ralink's site survey back as I'm sure I don't want to use Windows now, I can't. I tried another complete uninstall/reinstall. Windows will not relinquish it's primary control over the wifi network.
Ralink driver updates/repairs don't help. Status of Ralink's link Info say "NIC or driver not ready".
All that means is that Windows is blocking Ralink from taking primary control as it did several days ago. How do I get Windows Zero Config to stand down? BTW, I have a Windows 7 Ultimate machine.
