  1. I've just bought a new computer which runs Windows 7 64-bit and was wondering if someone could suggest a Wireless USB adapter that will work with this. Thanks in advance

    Out of the box with no drivers needed from CD, would be Airlink N150 mini usb

    I have it on one desktop wireless tester running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Once connected 7 installed the drivers for it and I was up and running. Did a site survey, found my wireless 802.11g/n mix network SSID, click on connect, type in passcode and that's is up and running. I recommend this device as it's dirt cheap and works. Max TX: 150mbps Max RX: 150mbps.

    Or

    Airlink Mini USB N300 (TX:150mbps / RX:300mbps) - in theory though.
