I am putting together a brand new computer, running on XP Pro 64. I need to connect a wireless LAN device to my computer but can't get my computer to use my chip.
I'm using a netgear WG111T, which netgear isn't supporting for 64-bit OS, with a Atheros AR5005UG chipset. I've found a driver online that says it should support the AR5005UG, (atheros whql install pack with ar5211.sys inside) but the New Hardware wizard doesn't recognise any of the drivers as going to my wireless card when I point it to that folder.
So, 2 questions
1) Do I have the right driver for a AR5005UG chipset on XP Pro x64?
2) How do install the driver when I get it?

Thanks in advance.

As many of us, you have problems finding drivers for 64-bit versions of windows. As for myself, my printer will not be compatible, as with my copy of Guitar hero aerosmith edition. You will have to wait for a fix to be uploaded to netgears site, or try to find a driver that is compatible. It will be a lot of trial and error, but you might have to find someone that is a programmer that has already uploaded a driver for it. you might want to check this out:
