Windows 7: Looking for a USB Ethernet adapter for Win7 64 bit

Looking for a USB Ethernet adapter for Win7 64 bit

Just like the title says - I upgraded to Windows 7 pro 64-bit, and I can't find working drivers for my Trendnet TU-ET100C.

Is anyone using a USB to Ethernet device under Win7 64 that works well, or has anyone found Trendnet drivers that work?

Thanks in advance!

Trendnet doesnt seem to have win 7 (64 bit) drivers. You might be able to use their vista driver if you install them in compatibility mode.

(right click installer>properties>compatibility mode> choose OS)

Sadly they don't even have a Vista driver - most recent driver direct from Trendnet is XP.

You can still try and use the compatibility way just select XP. Fabe

No, tried that too - there's no executable, just the .inf and .sys file, and trying them just gets me:

"Windows was unable to install your USB to LAN coverter. Windows could not find driver software for your device..."

netgear put out a driver for their usb adapters, but...I can say, I never got it to work. not sure if that's changed over the last month or so. might be worth checking out. go to netgear forums.

Found one! Just in case anyone else is interested, the newer version of the Trendnet - the TU2-ET100 - fired right up & Windows downloaded the driver.
