    Hi, I'm moving to Windows x64, the only devices I cant find 64 bit drivers for is my Linksys WUSB54G and my Logitech Keyboard, obviously I can just use the windows drivers for the KB, but what do I need to make the Network Adapter run?

    Until Linksys supplies 64bit drivers you will not be able to use the Linksys WUSB54G. 32bit programs will run under Windows X64, but 32bit drivers will not. Try a live chat with Linksys support to see if they have any beta 64bit drivers,

    64-bit drivers -

    guys,
    it's now September 2006.and I have just purchased a brand new WUSB54GB.

    Rather naively, I thought that I would get around the lack of 64-bit driver for my NETGEAR PCI wireless card by going for an adapter with an (industry standard) USB interface.

    Even my 12 year old Epson installed OK. all that is happening is that humans who are moving to 64-bit operating system getting annoyed the wireless network industry for putting profits ahead of customer service.

    What concerns me is the appearance of collusion or agreement between the various manufacturers not to break ranks. Pardon my ignorance, but why is the wireless industry the only problem area I have had changing to Windows XP professional x64? . Motherboard, motherboard chip sets,processors , video card, hard drives (NTFS/SATA/IDE), DVD drive, CD drive, hard drive, sound card, all straightforward to install.

    Even software such as my voice recognition (Dragon NaturallySpeaking) works fine under both 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. So just what is the technological problem with getting a 64-bit driver for a 802.11g wireless USB adapter, and why hasn't someone taken advantage of a market opportunity to produce them.
