Cisco AM10 Wireless Adapter not recognized as a network adapter

When I plug the Cisco Valet AM10 usb wireless adapter into my desktop pc the setup window doesn't pop up. And in the device manager window it is listed with a question mark under other devices as "Cisco AM10 USB Hub" When I connect the adapter to my netbook pc running Windows XP 32bit, the setup window pops up and it is displayed as a generic usb hub in the device manager. I can't seem to find the correct drivers to install this adapter. Why is the adapter recognized as a generic usb hub in my netbook but as other devices in my desktop?
