    Wireless card...

    I should realy go to network section but I posted there my problem
    and have no reply yet.

    Basically, my Netgear WPN311 is not fully compatibile with Vista
    so I cannot connect to my wireless network.

    Online support from Netgear is... how to say that... useless!

    Rather than waiting for proper drivers supporting Vista
    I would like to buy another wireless card.

    Could you advise me what is the best card with 108Mbps compatible with Vista?

    Thanks

    This is all you need
    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    I've used it with xp, and vista 64bit. Works with vista's own drivers

    I've been using this card with 32-bit Vista for months no problem (that I've noticed anyway) using the beta drivers.

    What was the problem you experienced?

    Ah, that'll teach me for not reading properly.

    Hmm never noticed that my card isn't running up to the full 108Mb/s..left in auto so assumed it was working as in XP whereby it only runs at full-whack as and when required..

    You know now what problem I have, but I didn't add that I have Vista 64.
    That could be reason why is not connecting me. Useless drivers, and also
    online Netgear support sucks!

    Sorry but thats the true.

    I'll go for Belkin G+ F5D7001

    Thanks

    I would have to agree - I have a WG311T in another PC running XP, and thought I would swap them to get the full 108Mbps in Vista that I've obviously been missing.

    Of course, I go to the WG311T drivers page to find the message "108 Mbps is not supported in Vista"

    Re: Wireless card...

    May be a bit of a HJ but what compatibility is there between the WPN311 and a Netgear DG602 Access point as my linux machine can see the BT hubs in the neighbourhood but not my AP?

    May go down the Asus WL-138g V2 route as at least Asus support linux.

    I did try a BT usb adapter but this wasn't even recognised by any OS apart from Windows so no brownie points BT for that.
