Which 802.11n adapter for 64bit Windows 7?

Hi,

I'm looking for a wireless 802.11n adapter for my PC - either PCI or USB (whatever works best) - running W7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Everywhere I look I see either compatibility problems being reported or poor quality adapters (or both). I don't really care much about the price, within reason, but I do want something very reliable and something that works in W7 64-bit.

Any ideas? What have you all found to work well in 64-bit?

Linksys WUSB600N. Don't use the CD it comes with. Download the drivers from their site first before installing it.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

I am pretty certain that the Belkin usb wireless adapters play ball with 64-bit - not that I use Belkin myself though.

Has this now been updated to the AE1000? In which case, is it safe to assume the new model will be compatible?
