I've checked the Windows 7 compatibility site, and it lists a fair few USB ethernet (wired, not wireless) adapters that should work with Windows 7 64-bit. However, whenever I Google for the model number and Windows 7 64-bit, there's many forum posts claiming that the devices actually don't work with 64-bit (but do work with 32-bit). I've actually also found this with the LUPO USB ethernet adapter; works with 32-bit win7, but not 64-bit (no drivers available).

So is there anyone out there who is 100% certain, and have actually used successfully, a 64-bit win7 capable USB ethernet adapter?

... looks promising. The driver download has a Vista_64 dir, and as 32-bit vista drivers sometimes work on 32-bit win7, I could draw the conclusion that 64-bit vista drivers work on 64-bit win7 -- so I think I'll risk it. – nbolton Jun 3 '10 at 13:06

After hours of research and a bit of luck, I can confirm that the following works on Windows 7 64-bit...

Got my +1, guess this info will come handy. :) – Shiki Jun 10 '10 at 16:42
Yeah, I'm a bit uneasy about recommending Pixmania, as they're a bit slow (and expensive) for delivery (2-3 day delivery -- ordered on Thursday, but came on Wednesday the following week). So if anyone knows of a better supplier, please let me know. – nbolton Jun 10 '10 at 17:19

I have the Dell XPS 13 which runs on Win 7 64 bit system.

This was recommended to me as compatible for my XPS.
