Windows 7: Wireless Adapter to use with x64

Wireless Adapter to use with x64

Hi! I just ordered Windows 7 64bit, and I had the realisation that my wireless adapter for picking up my router might not be supported. Can you help me by suggested good wireless adapters that are compatible.

My current adapter is a linksys WUSB54GS (v2.1) which I love. Something like this would be ideal!

Thanks very much!

not so gray matter

W7 Ult. x64 | OS X

According to the web, that device should work in Windows 7 x64. The compatibility website says that you'll need this set of Vista drivers to have it work in x64 Windows 7.

If they don't work, you can also use RaLink Vista x64 drivers as they use the same architecture.

I can't vouch for the safety of these files, so scan them with your virus scanner before installing:

If you still want to purchase a new device, these two work in Windows 7 x64...

Thanks for your help! That's a massive relief, the WUSB54GS is the best adapter I've ever used so I'm glad I can use it with the new operating system.

Thanks again!
