I ran the install program for driver only.

Plugged it in and it worked fine. Previously it would not accept router passphrase, now it did and I got full speed.

Post your results if you try this.

I am using Win 7 64. I downloaded the RALink driver (as benzofree2002 suggested) and installed the driver Only. I plugged in my Version 1 WUSB600N adapter and confirmed that Windows 7 installed the RALink driver for it automatically. (Use Device Manager properties to confirm that RALink is the Driver Provider). It works fine. Transferring a file from my NAS over wireless was done at about 6.5 MB/sec so I assume this is an acceptable speed for 802.11n. No drops in the wireless over the last hour. It works so far. Will post otherwise if it doesn't. Don't buy new hardware.

I find it strange the way some folks can make it work and others can't. I downloaded the same driver to try and use it on my v2.0 and it won't. It installs fine but there are no networks available for it to see. I bought an ethernet cable so having trailing wires at the moment.
Any suggestions or things not mentioned in the threads that I'm supposed to do but haven't would be appreciated.

My success was with a fresh install of Windows 7 and was for V1. I use ghost imaging software and for evaluation purposes I restore my system to fresh install before trying a new driver.

Are the successes for the RALink driver for V1 only? Maybe that's it.

Update after 24 hours of use: It is still running at rocket speed. However occasionally I have had to re-enter my WPA2 password after rebooting - I'm not sure why Windows didn't remember it. It is inconclusive whether this is a Win 7 or a driver problem. Anyway, it is still a success using the RALink driver for the Ver 1 adapter. My Windows 7 Premium 64 bit was a relatively new install (within the last week and after having used it with Ethernet).

If you have a Ver 2 adapter then it is officially supported by Linksys with a Windows 7 driver. In this case Linksys will provide you with technical support. I recommend that you contact Linksys tech support to get your ver 2 adapter working. At least you have an official driver as provided on their support site.

... They've withdrawn it from their site and I've contacted Linksys support by phone and live chat and they tell me that the site is down for maintenance and that it will be up and running with new drivers in 2 - 3 days. That means hopefully that I should have wireless capability at the week-end. I also tried the Ralink drivers and they wouldn't work.

For those who have their WUSB600N working with the version# 2 driver, you'll find in Device Manager that the driver provider is Ralink, even if you downloaded the driver from the Linksys site. For those who have version #1, as I do, working with this driver Device Manager calls it version #2.

I will reiterate what I posted earlier and maybe a second time through those who haven't gotten the version 2 driver to work (with either hardware version) will strike gold. I found that if you followed the instructions by Linksys to plug the adapter in only when prompted to do so by the software, I could not get the adapter to work. I instead uninstalled the software (also in Regedit), restarted the computer, plugged in the adapter, and Windows 7 came up with the message "installing device driver...blah blah." The adapter then blinked I think twice every couple of minutes showing that it had seeking activity occurring. At this point the notification area on the Taskbar turned orange and I went into the Network and Sharing Center and found that the home network was seen and needed to input the password, etc.

Try this again. I had an easier time actually getting this adapter to work in Win 7 than I did in XP.

For those using the ralink driver, does the ralink utility work?

Used ralink with previous dongle and the utility worked fine. Installed the linksys and it finds the ralink drivers fine, but the utility says card not detected.

Wireless Zero works ok

WUSB600N Win 7 64 bit issues

I as well can't get the adapter to work.

I started out calling Linksys Technical Support and after going over the install they recommended purchasing another product. I looked at their forums and it appears some people have been able to get the adapter to work. I guess I'm just obsesive/compulsive so I haven't given up, yet.

I have tried installing from the CD, from the Ralink download, from the Linksys Vista 64 bit download and all I get is that I have the best driver already installed.

I have tried going to the Device Manager and un-installing; then going to the Control Panel and un-installing anything with Cisco in it. I then rebooted and tried again without success. I have been working on this for several days following the Forum on Linksys' website all with no luck.

When I install the driver and go to Devce Manager and click on Enable it starts to go but then goes back to (shadowed) un-enabled.

The only thing I haven't tried is going into Regedit and deleting because I'm not familiar with Regedit and I know you can screw things up in there and I don't know what I'm doing (in Regedit).

Thanks you in advance for any light you can shed on this topic.
