Has anyone been able to install the Linksys USB based wireless G adapter (WUSB54G)? I've tried the XP & Vista drivers from Linksys on the Windows 7 64-bit beta and none of them are working. Windows comes back saying it cannot find a driver for the device.
Without my wireless connection Windows 7 Beta isn't worth much too me.

I installed the drivers after some effort, because Win7 refused to install at once. But today I had some BSODs and the dump files notice there is some problems with the WUSB54G driver, something that I saw happen on WinXP SP3 (after installing the Service Pack different machines showing reboots). My rig: IntelX38BT, Q6600, Nvidia 9600GT, 4GB, Win 7 64-bit.
64-bit Windows 7 Driver issues for Linksys WUSB54G.
I'm not sure if someone else has posted this or not but here is where to download it and instructions to follow.
1.Click this to download
2. Unzip them, I just put them in a new file on my desktop. You should have two folders, one that starts with 'driver updater setup' and another that starts with "wusb". In my case I thought I needed the 'driver' program first, so installed that first. But then realized it is a completely separate program so whether or not you want it is up to you, but it is handy so I recommend giving it a shot.
3. Click the app that starts with 'wusb'. IF it prompts you to unzip it, then do so. Either way, run the program. It will come up with a Linksys install wizard, run the install wizard.
4. Go into your Device manager and you may, like me, have something in your 'unknown devices' called your Linksys wusb54g. Right Click it and click 'update driver software' followed by selecting for Windows to update the software for you.
And now, the driver issue will be corrected and it works. yay.

There are a number of other links that state pretty much the same thing as a solution.
