    The product is a Zonet ZEW2501 WLAN USB dongle. Before you go LetMeGoogleThatForYouing, ZonetUsa's website has been taken over by hackers/malware hosters. (see:http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=http://www.zonetusa.com/&hl=en).

    There are a ton of "freedrivers.org"/etc sites that just list freeware and host tons of ads, but most link back to zonetusa and the links are broken or otherwise compromised. I found one hosting the old 2005 drivers, but they weren't Vista compatible.

    Anyone have any help?

    Good thinking. The driver for the one you gave just came as a sys + inf file with no installer, and I wasn't positive how to get that working, but I think I found another driver for the same chipset. I'll post how it goes

    With just the INF file you have to actually point Windows to it by saying "let me pick the driver to install" and then the "have disk.." button, or something similar.
