I'm pretty sure that's the model I have on my kids' PC. What you need to do is download the drivers (Windows 7) and install them prior to plugging the adaptor in. It will then prompt you when to install the adaptor, once all that's done Windows 7 will see it and you should be up and running.

OK, I have attempted to download drivers, I get sent around in circles, fill out 1 page, then another then another and end right back where started. If I could get link or better yet someone send drivers that would be nice

Just click on 'Continue without registering' at the bottom of the first form.

EDIT: If you still can't download them shoot me a PM with your email address and I'll mail them over.

To install the driver please follow the directions in the link carefully. You must first uninstall the old driver etc.

I had a desktop with a N router and used this adapter with my laptop. I eliminated the desktop & router and now only use the laptop. Can this adapter be used for any other application. Thanks
