Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54L Wireless LAN x64 Driver Hell!

Hi Folks,

First time poster desperately seeking some assistance please!

Been running Vista x86 for ages now, and with a view to upping the RAM and doing some serious Photo work, i figured i'd give x64 a go.

Foolishly i forgot to check availability of 64-bit driver for all my hardware before i did and have consequently run into a problem. I have a 'Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54L USB wireless LAN adapter which has been operating faultlessly since i gave up with my old Belkin PCI card.

However, there appears to be nothing in the way of 64bit support for this adapter from Buffalo.

I've spent the last 3 days trawling various web sites trying different chipset manufacturer drivers but nothing so far has yeilded anything even remotely resembling a working driver. Various pages i've come accross seem to suggest that the chipset in my adapter is either an Atheros 5007UG or a Zydas ZD1211B (which according to some sites are one and the same chipset renamed after a takeover?) or something else entirely. Frankly, i'm about to throw the ruddy thing out of the nearest open window but really dont want to give up on something i only purchased less than a year ago!

Can anyone out there help me? Can someone tell me for definite what chipset is in my adapter? or even better suggest some drivers for me to try??

Yes my problem was solved by installing driver from this link AirLink101 Help Desk ( Windows Vista 64-bit Driver), this driver is made by another suplier than Buffalo, but chip manufactor is same as Buffalo´s and many other labels

I had some fighting with my Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54L and found a solution.

Another (newer) driver that works is the driver for Belkin F5D7050 (4xxx)
With a little work you can get the drivers (09/07/2009,2.2.0.27) out of the installer.

Now my computer can get online after hibernate/sleep.
