    I have two new wireless usb adapters:
    1. TP-Link TL-WN722N
    2. Cisco Linksys AE1000
    I have been trying to get at least one to work with Windows 7 32-bit. I have tried the CD drivers, Microsoft update drivers, and drivers from the respective companies themselves, yet nothing works. When I go to adapter setting I can see it disabled, but when I try to enable it never does. Has anyone else been able to get these to work on Windows 7. I have tried them on Windows XP 32-bit without a problem.

    Do you have Vista or 7 drivers? You will need them.

    Yes, I have installed the Windows 7 drivers and the adapters still don't work.
