A7000 WiFi USB Adapter Firmware Upgrade and Genie


A7000 WiFi USB Adapter Firmware Upgrade and Genie

I'm trying to use the Genie to check and possibly upgrade the firmware on my AC1900/A7000 WiFi USB Adapter. I have the latest version of the genie, and when I hit "check for update" it gets to 20% every time and just stops. I've let it set for an hour, and it never moves. It always stalls at 20%, have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, and issue keeps happening. I believe I have firmware in need of upgrade, but don't know how else to do it. Tech support didn't seem to understand the issue or wasn't too interested in it, so I have no alternative. Has anyone else experienced this, and how did you fix it?
