OmniWiFi not recognized by OmniPeek Enterprise V7.9.1

I just bought an OmniWifi Adapter, installed it on my laptop, updated the driver and started OmniPeek Enterprise V7.9.1.

The adapter does not show up in the list of Adapters (Capture Options).
The adapter shows as Wildpackets 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card in Control Panel (Win-7).
The driver version is Ralink 3.2.4.5, dated 19.09.2012.

What else is needed for this adapter to work?

Anyone have any idea what is wrong?

It appears you have not installed the driver properly. Please follow the instructions below. Do NOT let Windows search for the driver:

I followed the exact steps as listed for installation on Win-7, except for the last step, reboot. I must have forgotten to reboot, because once I rebooted it was recognized by OmniPeek and is working.

Thanks anyway,
