There are no drivers. Linksys/cisco never made drivers for this device for windows Vista or 7. I have a simliar linksys usb adapter that also has no 7 drivers, but it works fine in 7's xp mode.

With the adapter plugged in and xp mode running, in the top bar click USB, then click unidentified device(atleast this is what mine shows up as), then install the xp driver. All this will do is enable the wireless connection in xp mode, Windows 7 will still not have a network connection.
