ROSEWILL Wireless LAN Driver and Utility

What is ROSEWILL Wireless LAN Driver and Utility?

This is the software driver package that connects the Wireless N USB device to the PC and provides software management functionality.

Overview

ROSEWILL Wireless LAN Driver and Utility is a software program developed by Rosewill. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. 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. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 16 files and is usually about 6.25 MB (6,551,486 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 91% of users of ROSEWILL Wireless LAN Driver and Utility come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Canada.
