Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
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...
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.
