I'm spending some days with my family and they don't have WiFi in their home and my laptop can't reach the nearest WiFi so I've got this wireless adapter called alfa network awus036h from a friend. I installed it on my pc and when I plugged the adapter it kept turning off and back on and windows made the sound of unplugging every two seconds and I can't get it to work. I installed the driver from the CD and I tried downloading it from the internet and reinstalling it from the scratch.
I've got a Toshiba satellite c50-a-1jr which came with windows 8.1
Note: the adapter works perfectly on another computer.
