  1. Ive just switched from XP pro to XP x64 edition and need to find the drivers for an Addon Wireless lan usb 2.0 adapter so I can get onto the internet and run windows update, its 54Mbps, 802.11g IEEE standard, if someone could just provide a link where I can get the drivers (Addon or generic it doesnt matter) i'd be extremely grateful.

    thanks but I tried the latest drivers from the site and there not compatible either, is there a 'generic' or standard 64 bit driver I could use, or do I have to buy a new wireless adapter?

    Unfortunately 64bit drivers are not available for all hardware yet.

    Manufacturers do seem to be slow in utilising the 64 bit OS.

    I suggest getting another card that does have 64bit drivers.

    Regards Howard :)

    Find out which chip it uses (Prism maybe) and check if the chip maker has drivers for x64.

    Have you tried just shoving it in and seeing if Windows detects it and has drivers for it?

    Go back to XP Pro I have only heard bad things about XP 64 bit edidtion.
