These are a few I found online for Atheros, the Unified 5000 chipset works fine for my machine. Check out Wireless LAN for x64 (v5.xx) or Unified 5000 chipset for Vista x64 wireless (v7.3.107).

Hope that helps.

Windows Update didn't tell me :)

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

OK I installed the v7.4.2.15 drivers after installing the D-Link DWA-552.... immediate blue screen after drivers finished installing... then re-boot... then I was able to find networks (10 networks vs. the 2 I get with my little Gigabyte card powered by RaLink chipset) but when I went to save the first available network, it crashed (froze) the screen. Third re-boot, was able to pick a network and get online blazingly fast, great. 3 web pages later, it froze the b**** up again.
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

Okay tried the mod for 552 and would not connect. I reloaded the 215 driver and disabled every network adaptor and mini ports( except dlink wireless of course),you will need to view all hidden devices to do this.Well i am going on 45 minutes no crashes and good connection. I will post back later .

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 v7.4.2.15 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 v7.3.1.109 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-

Joe
