Since I don't have that adapter, not sure why it will not work correctly, but it should.
Could you describe the exact problem or configuration you are seeing? What type of router are you using with that adapter? For instance, are you getting an X or a yellow triangle on the adapter icon in the tray?
I do not use a router. I run my high speed from my cel phone so i use a USB adapter. When I try to install the USB adapter it keeps telling me that the windows needs upgrading to windows XP service pack 3. Windows 10 will not let me install the drivers. I get a red X
What Trouble suggests would be the best way to update the driver, if it works. Sometimes the .inf file will install the drivers when the device is not found by Windows 10.
You might also check the Device Manager using the "View Hidden Devices" option. There may be some greyed out versions of your adapter you could uninstall and start over.
Another avenue is to use Device Manager to update the driver and tell it to look on your computer and let you pick which driver would be best. I notice in the Network Adapter listing, there are Linksys and Cisco sections. The Linksys has several types of devices and the Cisco has the AE6000. Even if you can't get a driver to load, you may see some device listed with drivers, like the AE6000 you could purchase in place of the AE3000.
I have a Belkin model F9L1101 which did have Windows 8 drivers on the website and seems to be functioning normally. If you decide to purchase another adapter, you might go to their support site and see if Windows 8 drivers are available.
Edit: I forgot to mention you might try using the compatibility mode for the driver install. Perhaps if it looks like Windows 7 it will allow an install.
