    I just got a new computer with Windows 7. My old one was using XP and I had a Linksys USB adapter for it, but it's not working on 7, and I guess it probably shouldn't. So I'll need a new one to connect to my router wirelessly, right? Can any of you suggest a good one?

    I assume you mean a Linksys USB "Network" Adapter. Which one is it. I have a very old Linksys WUSB54GSC which gave me a bit of a problem with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, until I was able to get the proper driver for it. So which one are you using, maybe we can help find a driver that will work? Which version of Windows 7 32bit or 64 bit?

    Yeah, that's the adapter I have too; Compact Wireless-G with Speedbooster. It's 64 bit.

    This should get you going then. It's the latest one available and seems to work quite well with Windows 7 64bit.

    Weird, I replied saying that worked, but I guess it didn't send. Anyway, that did the trick. Thanks Trouble

    Good to hear that you were able to resolve your issue. Thanks for posting back with the update.
    It's an old driver, but it seems to work without problems in Windows 7, it's the one I'm using for the same device.
    Welcome to the forum and thanks for joining our community. Hope to continue to see you around.
    Regards
    Randy
