    My BIL bought a new PC with Vista. I'm trying to
    upload the Vista driver for it provided from Linksys's
    site. It's a zip file which opens up with a setup
    and .SYS file. I cannot for the life of me get this
    driver file to load in Vista.

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Thanks for any help or info. Here the page with
    the driver file from Linksys.

    The new PC has 32 bit Vista installed. Thanks for any
    help or advise.

  2. 32bit or 64bit Vista? According to the download site,
    http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=2066646109B01
    The release date of 64bit drivers is yet to be determined.

    I have successfully used the v4 driver with my wusb54g (original version) on
    32bit Vista Home Premium in the past couple of months while I was working on
    my daughter's computer but I have never tried it with any of our Vista x64
    computers. I didn't have any problem with installing the v4 download file
    on my daughter's computer at all. If I remember correctly you need to
    install the software before plugging into the usb port.

    He said 32 bit.

    You should be able to unzip the files into a directory. Then ope
    Device Manager and select the device and Reinstall Driver. Point to th
    directory and it should install the drivers and work fine. If not, tr
    plugging it into a different USB port and it should try reinstalling th
    driver again

    by installing the adapter first and then trying to
    load the driver. I un-install and try it again. This
    time drivers first.

    Appreciate the help,
