TP-LINK Wireless USB Adapter Failure

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 2:02 am

You plug it in. No lights. No connectivity.

802.11n NIC

Disable, enable did not help.

Reboot did not help.

WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\Rtlihvs.dll
Error Code: 126

Time to look up in accounting when the device was bought.

Device Manager, uninstall driver. Reinsert device. And it blinks!

IPv4 address needs be reinserted
