The SMARTEST Thing About USB

The early days of "Plug and Play" weren't so much plug and play.  Usually, you had to install the drivers.  Six months ago I had a driver problem with my new 1 gigabit Wi-Fi (actually about 600 Mbs.)  I spent days trying to fix this, but a program called "Driver Easy" helped me to fix it.  This program will install drivers for you if you pay for the program, otherwise, it will tell you which driver to install.  I had to an Internet search to figure out how to install the driver.  I actually tried multiple drivers until I found one that worked well.

That was only in Windows mode.  When I boot my computer in Mac mode it had no problems.  In fact, Mac mode is still a little faster with the Wi-Fi.
