    USB Wifi For Windows 7 (64Bit)

    Does anyone know of a USB wifi adaptor that I can get in the UK which will work on the 64bit version of Windows 7 (Ultimate)? My old USB adaptor doesn't work (windows refuses to load the drivers so presumably the drivers are totally incompatible with 64bit).

    I've looked on a couple of sites for electronics/computer shops and either they don't list any OSs at all, don't mention Windows 7 or don't mention if it also includes 64bit.

    Have you checked the manufacturers website for 64bit drivers? That should be the first place you go for compatibility issues (rather than binning a usable device).

    If you have checked and there's no version available, almost every adapter will support 64bit if it's been made in the last 5+ years.

    I just went for a new wifi adapter in the end, I went with Netgear's WG111 model in the end, it was marked up as Windows 7, worked straight away. Now to set about downloading all my fav FF extensions.
