Philips SNU5600 wireless USB Adapter fails to install

I bought a "PHILIPS WIRELESS 54MBPS ADSL ROUTER AND USB DONGLE" for a friend as a package containing the "Philips CGA5722 ADSL Router" together with the "Philips SNU5600 wireless USB Adapter".

I installed the router without any problem. However, every attempt to install the "Philips SNU5600 wireless USB Adapter" failed...
When I'm installing the adapter, its drivers are installed successfully, then I'm asked to insert the adapter into the USB socket after which a windows pops-up informing me that:
"Cannot Install This Software
There was a problem installing this hardware:
Philips SNU 5600 Wireless USB Adapter 11b/g #3
An error occurred during the installation of the device
The system cannot find the file specified"

I ran a utility program to repair TCP/IP just in case... But the installation of the SNU5600 adapter still generated the same error.

To check if the adapter is not faulty I installed it successfully at work where I used the downloaded installation software from Philips' website this time as I didn't have the CD with me (Note that I always used the CD when the adater failed to install). So, the device is OK...

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

SOURCE: Failed to install

Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway. toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete. If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.

Laptop toshiba can't find my wireless router realtek rtl8187b wireless 802.11b/g 54mbps usb 2.0 network adapter


Try checking your computer's driver. Right click on Computer. Go to Device Manager. The device drivers are listed in the device manager. Drivers are used to make your computer parts communicate with the operating system. If it has a problem, then the part won't work.

Check for your wireless driver - update it. If no go, then try turning off your wireless adapter in your computer and turn it on. Check = if no go. Try going to safe mode with networking.

To go to safe mode. Do the following:

1. Restart your computer. While it's starting or booting, keep tapping F8 until you see the options to go to safe mode with networking. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking.

2. Let your computer start in safe mode. Check if wireless is working fine.

If you want to avoid this kind of problem in the future or if you want to make sure that your computer is running well, then install Radarsync.

Dell wireless 1450 usb adapter


any wireless router will be ok, they are all the same standard normally 802.11G, but if your adapter is 54MBPS go for a 54G router, or if 108MBPS, go for the faster router.
