    Steam downloads corrupt?! (Using USB Wi-Fi Adapter)


    I paid 60 dollars for the AC6210 USB Adapter by Netgear and my Steam downloads ALWAYS corrupt, I can't download ANY games.

    The only reason that I have a USB Adapter is because my GPU is too big and the place where you insert your Wi-Fi card gets covered up. Also, my room is too far away from my router to use an ethernet cable.

    Please help! ;-;

    I downloaded the latest driver from their website, I believe.

    Also, Verifying the integrity of the game cache will NOT work.

    I think I would take this to Net Gears website support Forum, I don't think you are experiencing a windows 8 issue?

    I think it has something to do with the incompatibility with Windows 8.1???

    I did SOME research, although, I still need help.

    +1 while waiting for an answer there I would try downloading some other stuff that has the hash published. Calculate the hash after the download. That will give you an idea if all downloads have a problem or just that server. Also try a different USB port. Make sure to turn off power fave settings for the port the WiFi is on.
