I just bought a draft N wireless adapter (TP-LINK) for my Acer computer (Vista).
Every time I try to install the driver, the computer freezes.
Any idea about what to do?

Try installing the drivers only (no additional software) Sep 2, 2009

Some of the software I've seen bundled with wireless adapters was among the worst I've ever experienced (this may or may not be your case). Try installing the drivers only *via the Windows device manager*, not using the manufacturer's setup program. Vista (and XP) has wireless administration integrated, no need for the often crash-prone add-ons habitually offered by device manufacturers.
