Extract and run the Setup program which will take about 5 minutes to complete
Click Finish to complete the RT6x Wireless LAN Card Setup
Open the Windows Device Manager
Right-Click on the Network Controller under 'Other devices', and select Properties
Select the Driver tab and click on 'Update Driver' button
On the upcoming screen, select 'Browse my computer for driver software'
I am not 100% sure if it's necessary to browse to the VistaX64 folder before you continue, but just to be safe here, browse to the VistaX64 folder (in my case it was installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\RALINK\RT6x Wireless LAN Card\Installer\VISTAX64), and then select 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'
On the upcoming screen, select 'Network Adapters' and click Next
Now comes the part where you may have to try different Ralink drivers using trial-and-error. Select 'Ralink Technology, Inc.' under the Manufacturer listbox, and try out some of the Network Adapters which will appear in the right listbox. In my case, the 'Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card' did the job. If you selected a non-working driver, you will get the typical 'Device cannot be started error (Error 10)'. If you selected a working driver, the driver will successfully install. As I said above, I have a WMP54GV4 wireless PCI card, and the Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN Card driver worked for me.

Re: would like to install the adapter on a vista 64 bit...
Looks like linksys website is down right now. Once it does come up go to the support section and get the drivers using the WUSB54G section. They should be available for your device if it isn't on the cd you were given when you purchased the unit.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart
once all of the drivers have been updated.
