Windows 7: Gigaset USB Stick 54

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 

Hello

I've the same device (same Hardware-IDs) and these drivers won't work by me.
Well, the drivers are installed, but the device cannot start... (Error code 10).

I tried both 2.2.0.27 (install through device manager) and 2.0.0.127 (with the setup.exe).

Can someone help me?

What is the device's actual name? You sure it's not just a dead device? Is it in a USB 2.0 port on the back?

Go in its panel from Device Manager, go in Driver tab, select Uninstall, in the popup check the box about deleting the driver. Then do it again until the device is no longer recognized or it's no more possible to do it (when you are using the generic windows driver). Reboot the machine.

Download (might have been a corrupted download) and Install again the latest driver I found.

Okay, I'm ashamed. I plugged it in an USB slot in the backpanel and it works now.

Many thanks for the fast support but can you explain me, why it works on the backpanel?
Maybe to less power on the frontpanel? But I'm glad it works, you are my hero.

Don't be ashamed. You are correct.

With ports on the back are usually 90% sure that the device will receive the full power promised by USB specs (0.5 amperes at 5 volts).
Wifi/bluetooth dongles and hard drives need full power (hard drives might need more than one port as they are really hungry). A flash drive needs little.

With ports NOT on the back, it's far less certain how much power each port is getting. Varies depending from motherboard (and how they decided to implement the usb headers on the mobo). Could be stated in manual, or not. Sometimes some headers have this limitations, while others not. Try changing the header of the cable connected to your frontal USB to another if you have some free.

In case the device is too big and is closing other ports or if you want to get better reception (if your case is tucked away inside something and the wifi bars in the icon are less than half), you can purchase a smallish USB extension cable for it. As long as it does not go beyond a meter and a half (1.5 m) you will be fine (USB data signals lose strength with distance, so there is a maximum distance it can go without a repeater, that adds cost).

Many thanks for this detailed explanation

The stick works perfect, I never thought that it would work with Windows 7. Then I luckily found this thread.

Best greetings

Can't believe someone else has this device xD

So glad you got it working. Mine has been working flawlessly. And always in the back.
My 3G USB modem doesn't work in the front either.

Greetings.
