Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you checked the Alfa site for the latest driver? Sometimes it helps to disable your Anti-Virus or Security program installed before you install the new driver.

Have you used a different USB port in your computer? Also, remove any USB devices plugged in to your computer as sometimes these devices may conflict with your USB Wi-Fi adapter.

An update will be appreciated.
