But the thing is that I have gotten it to work. When I first install it, it showes on the Currently connected to with all of the networks available. The problem is that it wont stay connected. It works for a short time and then the adapter just disconnects. Then no matter what I do I cant get it to come up again without uninstalling and reinstalling the software and driver. It shows in the network connections, even says that it is enabled, but disconnected. then it does the drop thing and wont enable after that.

When it disconnects does it indicate why? Could this be an interference or signal strength problem?

No. No error messages, no nothing. Just drops. And when it is hooked up to the dell with xp, I have a 100% signal strength, 85 -95% link quality. 23% noise.

At this point I'd say it's just not compatible with W7.

HAHA!!!! Figured out the problem!!! Because of the distance from my computer, I had to use 3 USB cables! Got pissed today and wanted to make sure they were OK and not causing the problem. Took everything apart and tested first the Ralink directly to the USB. Guess what, no problems! Hooked right up and stayed this time. OK WTF? I guess I have a bad cable. Tried each one of them connected straight from the computer to the Ralink and Not one problem!? WTF? Connected 2 of them together and no problem. Connected the 3rd and PROBLEM!!! It seems that even though I spent big money for USB cables with boosters in them, either the power wasn't enough to properly run the adapter, or the signal was degrading so badly that it just dropped it. GO FIGURE. Moved the Antenna so that I am using only one USB cable and have had no further issues. Who would have thought it would be that simple...

Huh???!!! How long is the USB cable run? Is the radio integrated into the antenna and the connection is all USB?
