Issues installing A6150 wifi USB adapter in Windows 10

Hi,

I am trying to setup Netgear A6150 wifi usb adapter for Windows 10, it says I have to install software from the link below and then insert the device. When I am doing so I am getting the device in the Device Manager in Windows by without any drivers, see the screenshot below. Have tried to reinstall many times and restarted PC in between, all the same.

I don't see anywhere possibility to download any drivers in form of INF file to point Windows to.

Then run the A6150_Windows_Standalone_V1.0.0.5.exe, and you get everything required in C:\Program Files (x86)\NETGEAR\NETGEAR A6150 Genie\Drivers

Point Windows to this folder with the netrtwlanu.inf and up you go.

Have to admit - this isn't what I would have expected from a driver-only installation. It's more a K.I.S.S. hack. But Happy you are back on WiFi again. 8-)
