Hi All,

I've got EDIMAX EW-7318USg - USB network adapter, it works fine in Windows 7 but somehow i couldn't get it to work on my Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

Has anyone tried to use Wireless LAN in Server 2008 R2 ?

Thanks.

According to the website, this adapter is not officially supported under Windows 7 or 2008 R2.  This is likely the problem.

Not if the vendor does no support it.  I suggest emailing the vendor to see if they have an updated driver.

I have to agree with Matt that if the device doesn't support the actual OS it is hard to get the product to work because of drivers. Now that said usually Windows 7 drivers work with Windows 2008 Server R2 and Vista drivers work with Windows 2008 Server.

Nope there are not generic drivers. Again you can try the Vista drivers but if they don't work then you are most likely out of luck
