that work with Windows 7. Probably it depends on the product in question if the driver already is present or comes with it on CD or downloadable. When it doubt: ask the sales person in the shop.
An alternative for a USB adapter is an Ethernet adapter. Gnerally, those come with an antenna that you can position on a place that has a better reception than where the USB thing on your PC is. So I would prefer such a one. And probably it's plug and play without any driver needed.
Here's an example: http://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=172696
I have a Desktop pc which has WinXP home edition OS and does NOT have an internal wireless feature.I just bought a Netbook pc with Win7 Starter OS which does have an internal wireless adapter. I want to buy a USB wireless adapter for my DESKTOP PC so i can hook up the netbook wireless hardware and my roadrunner isp connection .
I have been searching for a usb wireless adapter and note a lot of them are only compatible with Win OSs up through XP, not Win 7.Since the adapter i need is for my XP Desktop will that work to connect the wireless setup with the Netbook Win7Starter Os, or do i need to buy a Win 7 compatible adapter for the older desktop?
I have a Linksys wireless broadband router hooked up between my desktop pc and Roadrunner.
Thanks for any help on this.
