Any Wireless Usb/pci Adapter That Works With 64 Bit Windows 7
Apr 2, 2012
I have recently purchased a new desktop PC which runs windows 7 (64 bit) My previous pc ran windows XP together with a wireless USB adapter (BT Voyager 1055) Where can I find a driver that will enable me to connect to the internet?
I've just built a new core-i7 system running Win7 64 bit, but none of my existing wireless adapters are able to get a working internet connection. I have an Airlink wirelessN, Dlink wireless g, and an Encore PCI card. None of it worked, and after some Googling, I found that this is a widespread problem - many of these devices simply do not work in Windows 7 64 bit.
I have no clue if this is a drivers problem that simply will take some time for manufacturers to address. But Windows 7 beta has already been out for a while, so this is discouraging.
Are there any existing known reliable wireless adapters (specific models) that work with Windows 7 64 bit? I'm desperate to find one that works, preferably something I can get at a store (Frys or Best Buy) so I can test it immediately.
The Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network adapter works about 40% of the time. The other 60% it says there is a hardware issue and it cannot connect. I then generally fiddle around with the ethernet cable ie unplug it plug it back in move it around again and restart. This sometimes works and I have no problems. Then when I restart my computer its a whole game on whether I can get it working again or not.
I have the latest drivers, and it is not a firewall/security issue.
I have an Alienware m15x running windows 7 64bit and recently reinstalled to try and improve performance. I installed using the cd, and then used the resource cd to install any drivers. Everything on the disk was installed, but I still can't connect to any wireless networks. Troubleshooting either says there are no networks available, or that I need to connect an ethernet cord.
I downloaded all drivers from the alienware and dell sites, and sill nothing.
I've tried all drivers, reinstalling and installing drivers in different orders and nothing is working.
I have a home build PC which I upgraded to W7 64bit and installed extra RAM (2gb up to 6gb). With the extra RAM the installed wireless adapter, Netgear WG311v3, does not work. Can anybody recommend a new wireless pci that will be compatible?
I have been having this problem with windows 7. A lot of the time windows 7 shuts off my wireless belkin adapter for my wifi. I check in power settings and under the wireless adapter settings I have choose a setting of maximum performance. But if I leave the computer for a while it seems to shut it off which is really anoying when I want to leave stuff downloading overnight.
I bought a wireless adapter (linksys) and am running win7 64 ultimate and the adapter isnt being able to enable. Ive spent about 2 hours on the phone with linksys who say its generally a problem only when theres an antivirus attached to the computer. I dont have any antivirus on this computer at the moment. Is there something in Windows 7 that might be holding it from installing correctly/enabling?
I recently re-installed Windows 7 to my new SSD. Now my Wireless Adapter wont work. It's a "Netopia 3D Reach (ter/gusb-n1)" adapter (usb). The drivers that i came across all say that this adapter only goes up to vista, which doesnt make sense because it worked perfectly before i reinstalled my OS. What's wrong? If you find any kind of Window 7 driver

There are programs to accomplish this, but here is the roll-your-own method of changing the Media Access Control (MAC) address of your wireless adapter.CHANGE YOUR WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS
The possible MAC addresses in Windows 7 for wireless adapters: X2-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX X6-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX XA-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX XE-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX WIN | cmd.exe | enter | Ipconfig /all > ipinfo.txtIpInfo.TXT has your original IP address.WIN | DevMgmt.MSC | ENTER | dbl-clk on Network Adapters |rt-clk on your ...Wireless Network Adapter | Properties | Advanced tab | select Network Address (in Property area) | Value radio button | enter desired MAC address | OK
Examples of MAC addresses: 023344556677 16A098765432 3Affeeddbbcc 4E44667799aa
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top. MAC Media Access Control address
I installed a microsoft mouse and when I did the restart my wireless completely dissapered. I can get a conection using a cable, and the wire less signal is there because I am on in now (android) So... I`ll list every thing I've already tried so not to waste anyones time. After the Complete system restore...which I saw the wireless stuff reinstall I thought I was gtg..but sadly not even that worked. I looked up the drivers and tried installing, that failed. When you look in the device manager there is no wireless adapter It's an Acer Aspire 5253, win 7/64
Is there a windows 7 driver for a DWL-G122 wireless usb adapter? I have the installation CD that worked for my computer with windows XP, but my new computer with windows 7 won't register this usb adapter?

My Windows 7 Desktop won't recognize any wirless USB adapters at all. My windows 7 laptop recognizes what it is, but my desktop just beeps 3 times, instead of the usual sound when you plug a USB device in, and won't recognize it at all
I will preface all this with I am not particularly knowledgeable regarding computer stuff, but am willing to learn!OK I've been having a problem, similar to some other posts, where Windows Explorer (not internet explorer) seems to spontaneously stop responding. When it does, I can restart windows explorer and it always says "windows is checking for a solution" but never finds anything. Whenever this happens, which can be as often as every 5 minutes, it inexplicably disables my wireless adapter (belkin wireless g usb) which occasionally decides to not respond and not turn back on
Driver for Linksys Wireless pci adapter will not install on Windows 7 x64. Is there anyway I can force it to install or extract the driver somehow? It worked fine in my Vista Home Premium 32 so it should work right?
