Hi there guys, I recently got hold of a Hawking HWU8DD High-Gain Wireless-G Dish Adapter (Rev.B), But I'nm having a bit of a problem installing it. The software on the CD installs fine, but when I connect the device to the PC and it detects the new hardware to install, it fails to install the "802.11g Wireless USB2.0 Adapter", saying the system cannot find the file specified, and so the detection process starts again, returning the same error. Upon further investigation using the Device Manager, I can see when I connected the device an unknown device came up as "USB2.0 WLAN" for a few seconds and then dissapeared. thinking it was the port, I connected i to another USB port and saw that both "USB2.0 WLAN" and "ZyDAS IEEE 802.11g Wireless LAN - USB#2" appeared for a few seconds, then decided to vanish. I eventually tried this with all the USB ports, but the same problem kept coming up except the numbers on the end of "ZyDAS IEEE 802.11g Wireless LAN -USB#X" was replaced with 2,3,4 and so on while I was trying the other ports out. Curious about the brand name being displayed, I went on the Hawking website, downloaded the software and driver package for my model (Which was the ZyDAS utility instead of a Hawking Technologies one) and installed it but the same problem was coming up. Would this be a problem with the USB Port or the driver I was downloading/using? Plus, how can I see what network adapters I have installed, so I can clean it up? Thanks in advance and best of luck in the new year, ac Sherman

Software/Hardware used:

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve had to re-install Windows to fix problems like this before. You may also try it in a different computer. If that doesn’t work you may want to contact the vendor directly. Best of luck.

    ok  it seems this question is old but the 'HWU8DD' 802.11 wireless adapter is not that hard to install:  1. use the cd rom that came with the adapter. 2. write down the password from the jwire.com site (im not sure if the website is around) 3. after you download the 'main' drivers without the adapter plugged in 'goback' 4. to the cd rom 'clk' on the the icon below (their above each other) the password is at the end...you will have to 'restart' o/s..write me if you have any question been awhile..win xp usually will detect the adapter..5. the updates are found on Microsft updates website..Darfon is the company with the updates.
