Default Is this compatable?


hey guys,
i had a WUSB54GC wireless network adapter for my xp system and i just
got a new windows vista 64bit system and that network adapter is not
supported. In the last thread i had someone suggested this one that
should work with a 64bit.

Can anyone verify that this would work? i was looking all over the
page, and maybe im blind (most likely) but i couldnt see anything saying
it will for sure be compatable. I guess it really only depends on the
drivers for it.

Yes its compatible but you need to download the drivers from smc's
website cause the disc only has xp/2000 drivers.

If you open the downloaded folder from SMC, that is all you get. Presumably,
the XP/2000 driver works for Vista 32, but the chances of it working for
Vista 64 is zero..

I very much doubt it. The 'Vista' driver available from SMC is essentially
a folder containing XP/2000/98 driver files. Nothing that would suggest
64bit at all..

This one is Vista64 compatible though..

yeah i saw that page in their downloads, i just wasnt sure if that was
the 32 bit driver, cuz linksys had a similar download and they didnt
specify what version of vista, but since it didnt recognize it with my
system, i assumed it was the 32 bit driver.
