I recently bought a 600AC Sabrent network USB adapter in order to connect at 5GHz on my PC. The driver installed fine and shows as 'this driver is functioning properly' but the device doesn't seem to work. It's like it's dead (even though the LED glows). It's not that it doesn't find any wireless networks, it's more like it just isn't functioning. (If it weren't finding any networks, I would think I could up an empty network list.) I can't even get to that point. I have an older adapter that works just fine, so I know it's not a matter of there not being networks to find.
I know if I have another adapter installed and running at the same time, it can cause conflicts, but the other adapter is also a USB adapter, and it's completely disconnected when I try the new one. Should I still uninstall my old adapter first? That doesn't seem logical, once it's disconnected, especially physically. What about my internal, wired adapter? I wouldn't think the two would conflict.
