    Hi everyone,


    I recently purchased the ANEWISH WLAN 802.11ac USB Wi-Fi adaptor from Amazon. I used the link under the product to install the drivers on my new pc. This let me install the Wireless LAN utility program to my desktop, however, when I hover over the program icon it says ‘no RTL818x’, without this I cannot connect to the internet.




    It arrived with a disk, I have no disc drive, so I downloaded the drivers, but the disk says Realtek which must be the manufacturers. I am unsure where I can get the RTL818x driver. Whenever I go to device manager and attempt to update the drivers this does not work either.

    Thanks for the assistance, I was just confused as I expected it to work with the driver link provided. Sorry I am not as good with computers. I was on windows 10 too but it works now anyway

    Glad to hear that you managed to resolve your issue.
    Thanks for the follow-up info.
    Much appreciated.
    I assumed that since this is a Windows 10 Forum that you were using Windows 10 as your operating system.
    As a rule....
    Give Windows 10 the first chance to install your device drivers.
    Then, if you either notice a problem or you determine that the device manufacturer has a more recent driver or one that is optimized for your device and Windows 10 you can move to that driver.
