Question about ASUS (WL-167G) 802.11g/b (wl167g) Wireless Adapter

Can't install a driver

I have problem installing a driver for ASUS WL-167g WiFi USB on my computer. It always ends like this: "...ASWLSVC failed...system error: code 5...Access Denied". I've tried different drivers and also different OS (XP & VISTA 32bit). I've even flashed a BIOS. But when I try to install it on my brother's computer, it works fine. The driver is installed without problem.
My PC: MB >>> ASUS M2R32-MVP socket AM2 AMD 580X
CPU >>> AMD Athlon X2 4000+
GPU >>> ATI HD 2600XT
RAM >>> 2x1GB Patriot 667MHz
Brother's PC: MB >>> GIGABYTE K8Triton socket 939 nForce4
CPU >>> AMD Athlon 3000+
GPU >>> nVidia 6600GT
RAM >>> 2x512MB Kingston 400MHz
I hope someone will have an idea, what to do...
Thank you

    The problem was in FW (Agnitum Outpost 2008). I've tried turning it of, but still it didn't work, because FW was running in the background. But when I uninstalled it, wifi USB driver was installed automatically without problem. So now I know I have to configure my FW right. Thank you anyway

Did you download the latest version of the driver from Asus? Thats a pretty old wireless adapter, and Windows XP is pretty ancient these days, so it might just be a limitation of your OS not being able to do it.

You need to enter the wireless key from your router once before the adapter will connect. The key is either on the label on the router or in the wireless section of the router.

You might want to check out the post by ARIES HERE. He has some links there that might be helpful. They didn't work for TNYSTRAND but s/he may have had other issues.

The link to Ralink is broken on ARIES' post but you can find what s/he was referring to HERE.
