I know it is still early days for most but I was wondering does any one have windows 7 x64 working with a pci wireless card?
Currently I have a netgear wg311v3 card which only works when I disable driver signing. I can't be bothered doing this each time on boot and I don't want to wait till netgear release a driver in who knows how long.
I have heard the linksys ones don't work.
Any ideas?

Ahhh, now the Linksys one DOES work... I use the WMP54G V4.1.

I was having HEAPS of problems with that. I was using other RALink drivers, but they would end up locking the machine up if I did anything network intensive like refresh a server list in a game, or anything like that.

Then I finally found the answer.

The Windows XP 64bit drivers work FLAWLESSLY.

I'm using a LevelOne PCI card which works fine. It's a RaLink RT2561 chipset. Works flawlessly in XP, Vista 32 & 64, Ubuntu and now Win 7 32bit.
