If you’re a WLAN Engineer, you likely have a lot of Wireless tools in your arsenal. At the last wireless conference I went to, I took the CWAP course, and we installed Omnipeek on our laptops. Many of us had an issue where we had to configure our laptops to be able to install a driver that was not digitally signed.
One of my tools is AirMagnet Wi-Fi Analyzer. I have been upgrading my toolbox and decided to install the software on my new machine, which is a Dell with Windows 10 on it. I downloaded the same old multi-adapter kit drivers that I had done in the past, but this time the Proxim 8494 adapter was not seen when I launched it. I looked in the Device Manager and found the dreaded exclamation point.
I remembered back to the CWAP class, and that we had a similar issue. I tried the “fix” that we had done in class to no avail. I tried everything that Google told me to do. Still nothing. Admitting defeat, I called Netscout support and explained my issue.
It turns out there is a digitally signed driver that will make this problem go away! The gal on the other end of the conversation pointed out to me that there is a digitally signed driver on the Downloads page. It doesn’t say “digitally signed” anywhere on the description, but it does state Windows 10. I downloaded and installed it and it fixed the issue. The digitally flavored driver to download is the one my red arrow is pointing to.
