You could do a repair.
Load the disk in the drive and reboot your machine.
Press any key to make it start with the dvd disk.
Press the install button.
Then look down to the bottom left you will see "Repair", click on this and then select the repair option.

Right-click "My-Computer", select Properties.
Click Hardware. Open device manager. Find your USB network device. Double-click it. Select the Power tab and clear the "turn this device off to conserve power" checkbox.

Hope this does the job for you.
