Windows 7: Linksys Wireless x64 Drivers .... some

Linksys Wireless x64 Drivers .... some

I have the linkys wireless g usb network adapter, its very popular, but doesn't get along well with linux or x64 os's.
Since the install of the RC ive been crashing, and it turned out to be the wireless adapters fault, so i thought back to when i had to get it working with linux, i was pretty sure their were x64 drivers.

Ralink chipsets based wireless devices

SOME of the linksys wireless adapters have a "Ralink" chip in them, you can find 64 bit drivers for some of the adapters. I downloaded the one i needed (the first) and installed the software. I then went to update the drivers i had for the wireless adapter and was more than happy to find out that "Ralink Linksys Wireless 54g USB Network Adapter" right under the current 32 bit driver. after you install the software go to
Start > Contro Panel > Hardware And Sound > Device Manager > Network Adapters > Double click your current wireless device, > Driver Tab > Update Driver Software > Browse My Computer > Let Me Pick, > Select The RaLink Driver And their ya go!

I'd like to bump this to say that these drivers SUCK. Yes, they are mega fast but I was reading in another forum that if you have over 3gb ram, using 64-bit Windows 7, the Ralink drivers will make Windows 7 freeze every single time it loads inevitably.

Is there any other driver that is FAST and WONT FREEZE?? This is really pissing me off. I am thinking of just taking it back.

I didn't have any problems with my F5D9050 v3001uk and I was using it for about 3 months... Not sure what's up there...
You using the drivers Windows 7 downloads automatically itself or ones you've downloaded from Ralink/Belkin?

I am using the RALINK drivers for my Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter (v 4.2) - it works well for a while and then starts freezing every time I startup Win 7.. so I have to revert to the old ones, start up, then switch to the Ralink drivers because the Win update drivers suck and don't work at ALL.
