Apple USB-Ethernet Adapter Drivers for Windows 7 64-bit [UPDATED x2]

Through a series of incredibly unbelievable events I ended up needing to use an Apple USB-Ethernet adapter on this fully loaded Alienware M17X laptop running Windows 7 64-bit. The rest of you will probably be approaching this from the much more believable but equally incredible event of installing Boot Camp on your new MacBook Air. Congratulations.

[UPDATE 1/9/2013]
The driver link below has been updated now that MobileMe is dead!

[UPDATE 9/14/2011]
The proper driver is now included in Boot Camp 4.0 from Apple.  At the time of this writing the only way to get 4.0 is to download it from your Mac by running Boot Camp assistant and asking it to download Windows support files.
[/UPDATE]

Anyway, why these drivers are so hard to find is beyond me. Here’s the link to them on my iDisk. When iDisk becomes iCloud I will have to update this link, remind me if necessary. Apple USB-Ethernet Win7 64-bit Drivers

  1. Thanks! This helped me in a jam. I had a broken ethernet port on a laptop, and needed a usb-based one.

    2. My boss bought it. I think it is hard to find a peripheral or device driver that compatible with Win 7 64 bit.
