Is there a 64-bit compatible wireless USB adapter that works with Windows 7?

Is there a 64-bit compatible wireless USB adapter that works with Windows 7?

What USB wireless network adapter can be recommended, that has Windows 7 drivers for both 32-bit and 64-bit? It also needs to reconnect to the network when the computer is brought out of sleep.

"You can find a list ""Compatible with Windows 7"" USB wireless adapters on Microsoft's Windows 7 Compatibility Center website.

The ""Compatible with Windows 7"" logo
means a product has met Microsoft
testing requirements for compatibility
with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7.

At time of posting this link, all 12 products listed have both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers."

"I have been using the TRENDnet TEW-649UB on my netbook with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit and it works just fine. I can be slow connecting after waking from sleep mode but it does do it after a minute or so.

I should mention that it does crash on an HP dv9627cl machine with Windows 7 64bit but that machine isn't supported by HP with 64bit drivers. The onboard wireless works just fine.

I'll try it out on my own W7 64 bit laptop to see if it crashes it as well.

Edit: I have run this dongle on my Toshiba X205 with W7 64 bit and it has worked perfectly even when waking from sleep."
