Question about 2wire (1000-100052-000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
When I plug in the network adapter into the computer (before or after the computer starts up) it becomes labelled as an "unknown device". The 2wire cd that comes with it then becomes useless because the only option on it is to "configure" the adapter, which it cannot do since it does not detect the adapter.
I went to the 2wire website to download the drivers there (for vista x64), but the drivers do not come with any kind of an install guide/wizard. I decided to save the drivers anyway and have the Found New Hardware wizard use them instead to install the adapter. It didn't work- the wizard claimed that it found no driver software for my adapter.
I'm very confused of what to do next. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
seems we do need signed 64bit drivers within hardware. Since our old or current adapter doesn't have it, meaning we would need a new adapter that has it. I think the problem with 2wire and other ISPs using their products is that they don't reveal specific model names, numbers, etc on each to help us recongize what we need.

2Wire is not one of the most User/Customer friendly companies around and I would do as advised - get a good LinkSys adapter to go with the LinkSys router and that will really simplify the installation.
