Windows 7: Device disappears ??

21 Jun 2009   #1

Win7 SP1 + Ultimate 64 bit
Device disappears ??

I have Windows 7 on all my machines here, 3 64bit with 7100,7232,7201, and 3 32bit 7201,7260 builds.
Yesterday while I was trying to get a bluetooth dongle loaded I tried to find drivers for it online, I found out that the get the PROPER drivers for it I had to PAY $28.00

Needless to say I didn't anyway, the reason for my post is that after I unsuccessfully tried to do this suddenly my Linksys router showed up on ALL my machines int he Device folder? I thought, cool and I was amazed that Win 7 could do that but, today, that little icon and all mention of it have disappeared. I was just wondering if anyone ELSE has had this happen?
