Cannot get usb wifi to 'enable' on server 2008, even though drivers were installed fine

Just installed a Dell T610 at home, and only have wireless internet.
So I took my USB WiFi stick and plugged it in. Windows server 2008 STD. Edition x64 recognized it straight away and installed the drivers and said all was good.

I go to the network connections window, and it's in there, but it is disabled.

I have tried enabling it, rebooting, reinstalling fresh drivers, unplugging and plugging it back in, but it does just not get enabled.

When I hit 'enable' it flashes up a window that says 'enabling' - like it always does on windows 7 too - and it says 'enabled', and yet it still says 'disabled' in the network connections window.

what to do?
(USB adapter is Linksys WUSB600N)

I didn't see any W2008 drivers for the WUSB600N on the Cisco/Linksys site.  I suspect the W2008 plug and play manager might have picked up something else.  Can you verify if they are W2008 signed drivers?

If you really need it working, I would try downloading the W7 drivers from the Cisco/Linksys site and using them.
