What is TP-LINK 150Mbps Mini Wireless N USB Adapter Driver?

TP-LINK 150Mbps Mini Wireless N USB Adapter Driver is a utility that comes via the driver download or on the included CD. The application helps users complete the software installation and wireless network settings, including security configurations and wireless connection.

Overview

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 21 files and is usually about 1.45 MB (1,516,520 bytes).
