Wireless G PCI Adapter

Hi, i have recently gone from vista home premium to windows 7 and now my wireless adaptor does not work. i have reinstalled the software a few times and still no change. Also the green light at the back is not turned on and it is not found in the device manager. It is a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adaptor , 2.4ghz 802.11b/g Dish Antenna.

I've been using a Linksys WUSB600N sucessfully with Windows 7 so all I can imagine is that:

1.You don't have the correct drivers.
2. Your USB port is not configured

If you unplug it and re-plug does your Windows recognize that it's plugged?

You have to use winrar to extract the files from the .zip to a folder on your pc. You can extract to the desktop to make it easy. Then you need to update the driver using device manager, right click on network adapter, update driver software, browse my computer for driver software, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse.
Now find the folder you extracted and choose the .inf in it.
