I am running Windows 7 Pro x64 bit, and I was unable to get a driver from Cisco's website that worked for a Linksys USB100m model usb network adapter. Windows was unable to find the driver as well. After doing some searching, I found a driver from Realtek called RTL8150. A user on another computer forum suggested that this driver would work, as long as I used the Vista 64 bit driver. Well it did, sort of. The device driver did install correctly, and the adapter appears under devices and printers. However, it will not actively "work", that is, it will not try to find a wireless network, and there is no option to safely remove it from the system, which tells me that the adapter is not actually drawing power from the computer. Do I have to change the adapter settings, or should I merely continue to look for another driver?"Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent." - Issac Asimov, from his novel "Foundation"
