How to make Wireless LAN working in Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

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.

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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.

ah IC, I wish there is generic driver that can be loaded to make this thing working.

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
