I need to find a fully compatible pci gig nic card that works with 64bit Vista Ultimate...and has fully compatible drivers.

I have bought two that will not work. They work with 32bit but not 64bit...

Thanks :thumbsup:

Can you tell us what two you already have?

Are you saying that they are Vista drivers, but only support 32-bit use?

Something to consider- most drivers are "chip specific" not card specific. Google the actual brand/number on the controller chip, and search for drivers that way.
