Connecting a usb wireless adapter to windows xp?

Ok so I have just bought a wireless usb adaptor that I can use on my windows XP:

I put the CD that came with it and installed it on my computer like the instructions said. I then put the usb device into my computer and click the bubble than came up saying found new hardware.

I follow the steps and try to install it but it says it can't do it...

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or it is just stuffed up... probably me.

Does anyone have any simple steps or advice that might be useful? I have tried googling and youtubing but no guides are helping or working

have you rebooted the computer?

"it can't do it" is probably not the exact error message - give us the exact message.
If you can, try it on another computer, then you will know if the device or your computer has a problem.

"it makes your wired pc to become wireless via wifi, what a FREEDOM! "

"please only bid when you are confident in how it works and savvy in installations and configurations"

what a FREEDOM! indeed

Sorry to say - cheap unknown brand imported. If not buying a name brand item, do the research first. Saves all the hassles like this.

Yeah my dad bought it... it wasn't one that I saved on the watch list...

just buy another one, it was only $20
a branded one like asus, belkin, netgear etc
