Recently I bought a Wi-Fi USB adapter from ICDU, but that gave me some problems. I then returned to the shop and switched it with another one, but that gives the same problem, so now I'm thinking it might be my PC.
The Wi-Fi USB adapter I bought is a Sitecom Dualband N600 -WLA-5100 (official site here), and I'm running Windows 8 on a desktop with a AsRock A75 Pro4 motherboard.
When I plug in the adapter I get the message 'USB device not recognized. The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it.".
I then look in the device manager to see that there is an unknown device. In the properties of this unknown device the status reads "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" and under details the Harware Ids mentions "USB\DEVICE_DESCRIPTOR_FAILURE" (sorry about the caps, but it is how it's shown).
I downloaded the driver from the Sitecom website and also tried to use the 'Update driver' option in the Unknown device properties and browse to the folder with the drivers, but no luck either.
If I plug-in my USB flashdrive into the same port there are no problems, so I guess the USB port works fine.
Does anyone have any tips for me? Thanks in advance.
