My wireless and ethernet stuff doesnt work under windows 7 beta, i want to try the beat and this is just plain frsutrating! i tried the vista drivers and the uninstall reinstall method.

Motherboard - Asus P5E-V HDMI (Onboard Ethernet)
Graphics - Asus 9600GT HDMI
Wireless - Airlive WN-5000PCI v2
Ram - 4x 1Gb Corsair 800mhz Bonded Ram (High Performance)
Optical Drive - DVD-Ram 40x/16x (Forgotten Brand, Believe Liteon)(IDE)
Drives - Seagate 1Tb (Sata) amd Seagate 160Gb (IDE)
Case - Antec Twelve Hundred (5x 100mm Fans, 1x 200mm Fan)
Power Supply - iON 2+ 550w
OS - Windows Xp SP3 Home, Windows 7 Beta

All drivers install happily excepth that for the ethernet and wireless network bits. Latest bios and drivers for vista tried, both non functional.

Anyone got a clue?

Its strange that the Vista drivers don't work. I haven't come across any that haven't worked with 7. Have you tried forcing Windows to use the drivers?

i had same problem . running acer aspire laptop.. shows up neighbours wireless and my own however would not connect to mine at all.. so uninstalled windows 7 and back on x pro..connection no problem

definetly something in systems blocking the wireless..dont think its a driver issue as windows 7 recognises the connection but just wont acknowledge or handshake it
