I bought a Mediallink Wireless-N USB 2.0 Adapter from amazon, and I have not been able to get the device to work. I've tried several different drivers and they either fail to install or the OS does not find any available networks and reports that "there
might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter" whenever I right-click on the networking icon in the task bar and select "Troubleshoot problems."
My OS is Windows 7 64-bit Pro.
The card uses an Ralink networking chipset RT-2870.
What I've tried:
installing the Win7 64 bit drivers that came on the MediaLink install CD.
allowing Win7 to pick a driver.
installing the drivers from Ralink's website for the RT-2870.
I took a look at this post: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itpronetworking/thread/cc47fdd7-bd37-48ad-94b4-e616401aeac5
which seems relevant, but I don't have access to the vista driver and my netr28ux.sys file is already a newer version: 188.8.131.52.
