I don't like 127, they keep disconnecting from the router about every minute or so.
109 are much better, no such issues.

Out comes the card. Back on the Gigabyte card again... Oh well, nice try. D-link should give us all refunds for this piece of SH$# card that they can't write 64 bit drivers for even though they claim all this high and mighty vista partner BS.
BTW, I am running Vista Ultimate 64 with 4GB ram, Athalon 64x2 4200+, older Gigabyte SLI motherboard with two 7800GTX etc etc etc bla bla bla

Have you tried this modded INF http://forums.laptop...showtopic=15297
Yea, I have tried now, but no luck at all. No matter what driver is installed, if it is actually able to connect, it will eventually crash. It took a while to get a good install cause I downloaded v188.8.131.52 with modded INF v1.16
and it only had 2 files in it, and would not install (of course) so that was frustrating (must have been a bad connection/download on my end) and today I tried the v184.108.40.206 with modded INF v1.15 and these
actually installed without problem, but the damn card would not connect to a network.
So I played around with the setting and set it to Antenna A instead of auto. then I was able to connect, but then
of course it crashed immediately. I am sick of rebooting my poor computer. I am just going to buy a damn d-Link DWL-G550.
thanks much for your help in any case-
