I keep reading up many problem with wireless adapters driver, mainly due to incompatable .dll issues. I've got a D-link g wireless router (provided by my cable company) i was looking at the WUSB300N, should work with my G network but I've read up many problems because there are not windows 7 compatable drivers.

Does anyone know a good USB wireless adapter that works well with windows 7??preferably linksys

I cant help you with Linksys but I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on my main PC along with Vista 64 Ultimate via a Belkin N+ adapter linked to my Belkin N+ router at 270 Mbps, it is also running an XPS Gen 1 laptop XP Pro SP3 using the DELL onboard wireless G adapter at 54 Mbps and a second XPS Gen 1 laptop Windows 7 Pro 32 with a Belkin N1 PCMCIA adapter at 150 Mbps 7 drivers were not an issue.

It's a Model F5D8055 V2 N+ and it came with Vista 64/32 and XP 32/64 drivers so I had to go to Belkin and download the software for Windows 7 64, the Belkin N1 adapter I use in my laptop came with the drivers on the CD.
