A computer I reinstalled was using Windows Vista, and I installed 64-bit Windows 7. The computer uses a Linksys USB wireless network card, the WUSB54GSC. I went to the website and they don't seem to have a driver for it, and it doesn't seem to be officially supported for Windows 7...but while searching the problem there does seem to be a number of people who have it working fine. Any idea how I can get it to work? Windows 7 itself does not install any drivers, the disc it came with doesn't work.

It seems like the adaptor only has XP drivers on Linksys' site, which probably means it has 32-bit drivers only. Which is probably why it worked with Vista that was likely 32-bit, but doesn't work with Win7 64-bit.

Time for a new wireless adaptor.

Edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127076

That is only $8 shipped, and has 64-bit drivers.
