NetGear A6200 USB Adapter with W530

Hello,

 

I'm trying to connect an external USB NetGear A6200 wifi adapter to my W530.

 

It installs, but won't find any wireless networks.

The adapter works fine on other computers. (can't test other W530's though).

 

I've tried multiple USB ports as well.  

 

Is there a compatibility issue with the internal wifi?  I've disabled it, and tried, no luck.

 

Any suggestions?  I'd really like to get 802.11AC up in my office on this laptop since it works so well on my desktop.

 

Thanks!

Do you have Access Connections installed?

I have a feeling it might work if you uninstall Access Connections.
