My USB NIC is soldered in to the PC. I am unable to install the driver for my NIC now.(QCA9378) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I am using a QCA9378 NIC for my testing purpose in Win 10 x64.

    I tried to install my customized driver manually for  a QCA9378 driver. 

    Manual installation :

    Device manager :-> Card is detected as QCA9377 but shown as yellow exclamation mark (i.e not properly installed)->Uninstalled the driver -> Usbwlan-> update driver -> Installed my customized driver.

    It is failing with Code 10.  "Windows encountered error while installing driver for your device." 

    "The Device cannot start (Code 10)."

    This state is not changing until and unless if I remove and connect card. 

    Even restart, reboot PC, Enable, Disable card also not helping.

    Currently I am testing on a test setup where card can be removed and connected back, so I am able to proceed by removing and connecting card back and then driver is getting installed properly.
    But my original platform is where that USB card is soldered to the machine and I will not be able to remove and reconnect the card.

    Any solution for this issue i.e for doing a USB card removal and connect back. (Please suggest any tools or any configuration changes). 

    Thanks in advance.
