Try going to Device Manager > Select the Wireless Device > Right click Update Driver Software > Point it to the extracted directory ?

Without knowing the Wireless chipset it makes it a little hard to help get the drivers from Realtek, Atheros etc.

What linkinparkfan007 mentioned should work. Another alternative is to download the latest driver package from Realtek's website for the RTL8192SU chipset.

If there's one area of computing not to buy a generic no-name device - it's networking cards and devices. LOL.

I've had the best luck identifying stuff like that by going into Control Panel, Device Manager, find the USB device that's not working, then go to the Details tab, then pick Hardware IDs from the drop-down list. You should see some Values that look a little like this:

USB\Vid_1038&Pid_1000&Rev0100&MI_00

The "USB" means it's a USB device.
The "VID" is a Vendor ID
The "PID" is the Product ID
The "REV" is the Revision

You can usually Google the whole string and find out who the manufacturer and product is, and typically find a direct link to a driver in short order.
