My WUSB6400M keeps locking up a few times a day. When it does, I can't reach the networking adapters applet in control panel, and I can't reach the internet until I unplug it and plug it back in. I looked in my Windows event logs, and I see number of these errors:
The WSWUSB6400M service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 5000 milliseconds: Restart the service.
Seems to be a driver problem. Suggestions?

I am guessing you have already tried deleting the driver and reinstalling it, and trying a different USB port?
What OS are you using?
Another thought, is you could try the chipset manufacturer driver http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=64&Level=5&Conn=4&DownT...

Yes, I have tried deleting and re-installing the driver. Yes I have tried using different ports. The driver just seems really unstable. It will be fine for a day or two, and then the next day just decide to start crashing. I am using Windows 10.

Do you have power saving turned off on the adapter?

It's definitely the drivers. I removed the current drivers, plugged it in and allowed it to just use the out-of-the-box generic drivers. It's been stable ever since, although the speed took a noticeable hit. Here's hoping Linksys gets their act together and updates their drivers. This is their newest, most expensive adapter; and so far I am noticeably underwhelmed.

Yes a bit of funky things have happened to me, I have two WUSB6300's and after one of the Windows 10 updates, it switched drivers and it was horrible speeds.Just last night when I was testing different network adapters, I had to actually go through the windows registry to clean out anything that had WUSB6300 in it, then it allowed me to load the new driver...
On the other hand, like I suggested above, you can try the chipset manufaturers driver and see if it helps your situation. I had to do it for my Netegar A6210 adapter, as Windows decided to load it's own driver and I couldn't connect to anything.

I found a solution!
I'm selling the stupid thing on eBay and going with a PCIE wirelss adapter. That's what I wanted to begin with, but I really wanted something from Linksys and apparently they stopped making those.
