USB Wireless Adapter Recommendation

Hi,

I have upgraded from Vista to 7 and the only thing that I cannot get to work is my Belkin USB Wireless Adapter. I have spent far too long already reading posts with suggestions and trying them only to have it still not work. Can someone please recommend a USB Wireless Adapter that works well with Windows 7 so I can just buy a new one that will actually work and not waste anymore time.

Thanks

Andrew.

I personally haven't used a USB wireless adapter before but if I had to reccomend one than a linksys USB adapter would work. I have bought linksys for the past 6 years and I couldn't be happier...

I am running the Belkin wireless G USB adapter using the latest vista drivers from the Belkin website without issues

just make sure you get the correct drivers to match your actual adapter

There are 5 different drivers in use and each has a specific driver to match the hardware actually present in the adapter
