    This Worked For Me

    Windows 7 provides a generic Wireless USB LAN driver.

    Select "Locate and install a driver manually" from the "Update Driver" button from the Driver Properties in Device Manager

    This worked for my Linksys USB wireless Adapter in Windows 7 64bit.
    "Update Driver" -> "Browse my computer for driver software" -> "Let me pick from a list of device..."

    I selected away from "ver. 2" and all my problems were solved.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm using the WUSB600N as my only means of connecting my desktop to the internet at the moment. Can't run cables for a number of reasons, but the wireless works fine on Vista. After installing the Win 7 beta on a second hard drive, I insert the driver disc for the adapter, follow the prompts, but then Windows says the driver was not installed properly. Back on Vista now to try to figure this out. Google isn't coming up with anything. Anyone run into any problems like this? Any suggestions?
    Good morning Starbuck, welcome to Windows 7 forums.
    I have a link for you from Cisco, a couple of questions:
    Are you setting up for X86 or X64? Its not clear as you have posted no system specs. Which router/access point will you be connecting to?
    Cisco is slow rollong out wireless adapter drivers.
    If you have your install disk I suggest in Windows 7 to mouse over to the install/setup.exe file and right click on it and check for compatability mode and see if you have Vista then set it up as administartor and launch install. Here is the link: Linksys by Cisco - WUSB600N Support

    Unfortunately I have ver. 1 and tried all the solutions. Linksys even said they dont have a driver for ver.1 and could not say whether they would make a driver for it.. Probably going to get an Ethernet bridge so dont have to worry about driver problems..

    Unable to install driver for WUSB600N v.2

    I am having the same problem as noted in the very first posting. I've tried everything that's been mentioned so far, and it still doesn't work. Once again, wireless is my only way of accessing the network & internet. I bought the v.2 adapter and downloaded the Win 7 driver, but it won't install.

    bg, have you resolved the problem? I have a Linksys WUSB600N ver 1 adapter. I got it working by plugging in the adapter after a fresh boot. Windows came up with a new hardware message and installed the Ver. 2 driver. I'm not sure if the driver came with Win 7 or if it found it because I had earlier tried to install the driver.

    Anyway, after that the adapter would blink green every couple of minutes so I went into the Network wizard to set one up and the home networks were being recognized. It was just a matter of giving the password really and I was on.

    Lucky you, Wordsworth. Back when I had the v.1 adapter and it worked partially, it would recognize the network but not my password. I have a WPA2 network and a Roboform generated password. The adapter thought my network was WEP (it definitely isn't) and the password was not the right length/format for WEP so it always balked at that point. Since then Win 7 has gotten totally confused about the drivers and refuses to install any driver for the (now) v.2 adapter. I've talked to Linksys tech support and have been bumped up two levels; I'm waiting for a callback from their office in California.

    Have you done a complete uninstall? Including deleting, if necessary, the entry in regedit (HKEY Current User>Software>Linksys? Then reboot and plug in the adapter.

    OK, here's how I got V1.0 to work.

    Downloaded driver from Ralink corp. site. Supposedly this USB adapter uses the RT2870 chipset.

    I ran the install program for driver only.

    Plugged it in and it worked fine. Previously it would not accept router passphrase, now it did and I got full speed.

    Post your results if you try this.

    Running Windows 7 64bit Professional on Gateway FX7805u.
    Adapter (ver.2) would not install from CD. Tried two times.
    Called Linksys support and it was a waste of time
    I had already downloaded the Vista 64 bit drivers from Linksys.
    Followed the instructions and updated driver in Device manager.
    Installed no problem.
    Run Speedtest on the laptop without the adapter.
    Download 6.29mbps Upload 0.84mbps
    Run Speedtest with the adapter.
    Download 8.60mbps Upload 0.88mbps
    ISP is Cable - RoadRunner
    Interesting thing is I than connect to my wired network.
    Run speedtest.
    Download 6.21mbps Upload 0.85
