  • Used this on my MiniITX project machine, as I didn't want to run antennae from a mini-PCI card, Unfortunately, under Windows 8.1 at least, it is incredibly slow at accessing the internet. So much so that the majority of pages eventually timeout before reaching their destination.

    Are there Windows 7 64bit drivers available for this device as it isn't recognised by the aforementioned operating system when plugged in. It knows it is an Wi-Fi dongle but hasn't the drivers - or alternatively can someone tell me which driver I can use to get it working under windows 7? I bought this with the Raspberry Pi starter kit but do not need to connect it as my Pi is using a wired Ethernet connection. Kind Regards
