Wireless issues

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi again, I have a small issue with one of my wireless cards in my PC
Currently I have a Linksys WUSB54G Adapter that is working perfectly fine
and a Trendnet 54G PCI card-bus adapter. (RTL8185L chipset)

Ok so, the Trendnet card works...on every other operating system BUT windows 7 64bit.
I have Linux(Ubuntu x64) and it works perfectly fine the system picks up everything and just works like the linksys does.
But on windows It does not connect to the internet. It will however connect to the router.
Ive tried different drivers for this card and still no avail. I read somewhere online that this card just doesn't work at all for windows 7, which would be crap for me especially since it has the windows 7 stamp on its side.

Anyways, if you guys got any ideas please let ,me know.

Trendnet has both 32/64 in the installer, perhaps they need an update ?

maybe cmd> ipconfig/all may reveal something

Windows 7 64 tends to ID the wrong driver for whatever reason to run certain devices even after update/reboot. For the life of me just yesterday fresh install- HDMI audio drivers somehow defaulted right afterwards; Right clicked my device> update driver>browse my computer for software>let me pick from a list. Chose the top result and it then worked


best of luck , hope you get it solved however that may be redface.gif

Oh, get this.
Ive been pulling my hair out endlessly trying to get the driver for windows 7 to work all day.
So, out of random curiosity i installed windows XP x64 drivers and the card works perfectly now.
windows 7 and the windows Vista driver do not work at all on my system for some reason.
And the XP driver is the one thing I didn't expect at all.

Also, to install it you have to go to device manager > update driver > look for driver > choose from list of drivers > have disk. (seems to be the only method I can get to install XP drivers)

Any other method to install that driver doesn't work
