Windows 7: Linksys WUSB100

Linksys WUSB100

Hey guys,

So I can't install my Linksys WUSB100 drive in Windows 7. It wouldn't complete installation, no matter what I do. The software doesn't allow it to download onto the computer and then be installed. HELP. I'm kind of a computer noob so I don't have any experience bypassing the security in windows 7 to install it.

Old thread but this is for reference;

Let 7 detect the usb device and install it's basic drivers. The Installation disk that comes with this unit is useless on 7, skip it. The current linksys - cisco support page for this unit is a joke, but you can d/l the 7 32/64 drivers. There is no auto install. Unzip the files into your d/l folder.
Then r-click computer and go to manage - then device drivers. Expand your network adaptors, you'll see your adaptor there. R-click on your adaptor go to properties. You'll see a driver tab, click on that. You'll see an update driver tab in that window. Click on that, select browse to the folder that contains your updated drivers, OK and let 7 do it's thing.
The jury is still out on the wusb100's quality but remember it's a cheap usb adaptor. You can find alot of post with people using these with problems on Vista as well as XP. Your routers settings & security can have alot to do with how well it plays nice or not.

I have a WUSB100..
The signal always seems to be low on Windows 7. It was constantly high on Vista. Speed on 7 rarely gets above 52 mbps, it was nearly always 72 mbps when on Vista. It also says IPv6 connectivity: No network access. Is that a bad thing? Little confused.
