Devices comes up compatible on Microsoft site and actually worked during the initial setup (found my home network, accepted password and finished setup) but once it finished, the system says that I need to install drivers. D-Link no longer supports the device. I am told that it uses a Texas Instrument chip. Is there a generic driver I could use instead?

I get it to work for a second. If I uninstall the driver and scan for hardware changes it works... For maybe a minute or two. I don't get it

Same issue. Device starts ling enough for me to sign into my WiFi (maybe web browse for a sec or dl a few updates) and then I get a "device failed to start (code 10)" in device manager. I did notice an update for the device in windows update that keeps failing to install
