Hi,

Most current wireless g adapters come with a CD installer that you need to run first before plugging in the WiFi USB. If for some reason the CD installer is not available, you would need to go online on a 2nd PC, go to the manufacturer's website/Downloads & Support, look for your WiFI USB model, download and copy to a flashdrive OS appropriate drivers (&essential files). Thereafter, you can transfer/run the downloaded installer/files to your Vista PC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Trying to install a linksys wireless B ethernet card. When I installed the wireless network adapter it tells me I need to download a internet controller. Where can I find the internet controller download...


It's not a internet controller, it's the driver.
It's not the driver for an emachine w3653 (which is the pc) it's the driver of the Linksys wireless card. Go here
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys
go to the page of your card and from there get the Vista driver.

Cannot connect to wirless with adapter on new computer


Although this model appears to support Windows Vista according to the manual for it (ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WG111T_UM_04Feb07.pdf) the 64 bit version is not mentioned and, therefore, probably not supported. I'd take the wireless adapter back and find one that supports Vista 64 for certain. Some do.
