I'm new here, so I apologize if this has already been discussed. Nonetheless, I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite P505-S8980 Laptop with the following specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OS
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20 GHz
6GB DDR2 RAM
My question is the compatibility of an old Linksys WUSB54G Network Adapter (VERSION 2.0) with Windows 7 64-Bit. I followed the installation instructions for the Version 2.0 and everything looked OK, but the laptop could not read the adapter. I then found out that it was not compatible with Windows 7, but that there were fixes available. I have absolutely zero understanding of how all of this works and the only solutions that I have found for this are applicable for Version 4.0 of this adapter. I've spent hours trying to get my laptop to read the adapter, including all of the manual driver
installs via device manager. One site even told me to uninstall the 2.0 software and install the 4.0 software (XP & Vista) and that it should work (it didn't).
Does anyone have a "step by step" solution for the Version 2.0 adapter or is it simply outdated and time to buy a new network adapter?
