About a year ago I purchased a Samsung Blu-Ray player. It didn't have built-in Wi-Fi, but came with a WIS09ABGN USB Wireless adapter.

About a year ago I purchased a Samsung Blu-Ray player. It didn't have built-in Wi-Fi, but came with a WIS09ABGN USB Wireless adapter.
I've since upgraded to a GoogleTV-enabled player, and now have the old WIS09ABGN adapter lying around. This got me wondering, 'Would this work on one of my desktop machines?'
Plugging it into one of my Windows 7 boxes, I was alerted no supporting drivers were found, and Windows Update was clueless as well.
Samsung's technicians, though friendly and toll-free, insisted the device was proprietary and no software existed for using it on a PC. On my second call back, a different technician took the time to put me on hold and actually check, but returned 5 minutes later and said the same: 'It's proprietary technology, we did not make it for PCs, so you cannot use it with Windows.'
My first few Google searches turned up nothing, but then I noticed a comment from Yahoo! Answers that gave me a hint. The hint had since disappeared from Answers but enough of it was still in Google's cache to point me in the right direction.
Within a few more minutes, I had figured out the following and was up and running with the WIS09ABGN on my desktop PC:
The Samsung WIS09ABGN is actually just a (very expensive) Ralink RT2850-based 802.11 adapter, very similar to the LinkSys WUSB600N v2, and can use either of those drivers. (See update at bottom for links to Ralink RT2850 drivers, although the Linksys ones seem to work fine.)
Downoad the WUSB600N v2 drivers (for Windows 7, Vista or XP) from the LinkSys website, and unzip them to a folder on your desktop.
Open the Windows 'Device Manager', and double-click the '802.11 n WLAN' device under the 'Other devices' category.
Click the 'Update Driver' button, then chose 'Browse my computer for driver software'.
Now click 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer', then double-click 'Show All Devices' in the list.
Click the 'Have Disk' button, and browse to the folder on your desktop where you unzipped the WUSB600N files. Inside are two folders: Pick the one with the words 32 in it if you have Windows 32-bit, or the one words 64 if you have Windows 64-bit. (Note: For Windows XP, the 32-bit folder is just named 'Win2KXP')
Double-click the netr28u.inf file inside the folder you chose, then click 'OK' on the 'Install From Disk' dialog box.
You will now be presented with a set of possible devices. Double-click the one named 'Linksys WUSB600N Wireless-N USB Adapter with Dual-Band ver. 2'
Windows may alert you that it cannot verify the driver is compatible, and does not recommend installing it: Just click 'Yes'. Windows will proceed to install the driver.
Voila! Your Samsung WIS09ABGN will now appear within your network adapters as a Linksys WUSB600N. Enjoy!
Why exactly Samsung wouldn't let people know about this is beyond me. However, I'm writing this post to /r/techsupport from the desktop PC I'm using it with, and it works great!
UPDATE: I'm a little shocked at the moment. A member of Samsung's PC support division actually called me back a few minutes ago, and after explaining to me that this product wasn't officially support for PCs, informed me that the WIS09ABGN uses the Ralink RT2850 chipset, for which drivers can be downloaded from Ralink's website.
Honestly, not only have I practically never had a tech support agent actually call me back, but the person who called me actually had helpful information. Props to Samsung!
