Edimax EW-7612PIn Wireless LAN Driver and Utility

What is Edimax EW-7612PIn Wireless LAN Driver and Utility?

This is the software driver and additional utilities required for managing and connecting the LAN networking device to the PC. Uninstalling this driver may cause the hardware to stop functioning properly (only remove this package if you no longer have the LAN device connected to your PC).

Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run.
