Don't think it needs drivers just plug a Ethernet cable in to try it, then enter the setup page by opening IE and put the number in the address bar

It's a USB adapter (Like a wireless laptop card but not?!)

I have the 11Mbps version and it doesn't work with win98. I tried it on my desktop, but as woodchip says it's plug and play with 98SE and above.

I would like to find a driver for it as well. Have you tried the linksys site?
