Ralink drivers for XP/Vista x64?

Postby oakb » Tue Mar 03, 2009 12:29 pm

The only Ralink drivers I can locate for the Linksys WUSB600N in OmniPeek are for 32-bit Windows only. Problem is, my primary (okay, currently my only) packet-capturing station is a laptop running Vista x64. I could downgrade to 32-bit, but I would be wasting half of the 8GB of RAM on what otherwise is a perfect capturing platform.

Does anyone at WildPackets know of an x64 driver in the works at Ralink? Does WildPackets have enough influence at Ralink to encourage the development of this driver?

While on this topic, I would also be very interested in an x64 driver for the Linksys ExpressCard .11n adapter, the WEC600N. To my mind, an ExpressCard adapter would have the advantage over a USB adapter.

Hey, Brian-

We do not know of a 64 bit USB driver available, but you may want to check with Ralink on this as it is their driver. We have a partnership with them and can certainly relay your request, but contacting them directly is probably the best course of action for you.
