Hey guys,

I recently got a new computer, on which I put Windows 7 RC 64 bit.
Unfortunately, I purchased a Netgear WG311v3 Wireless Adapter Card, which doesn't have drivers for 64bit
Is there any way I can get it working?


Thanks in advance:D

Hi zhengn

I have no idea if this will help you as I am running Win7 32bit, but you could try looking at the PROPERTIES of your card and seeing if it has a Compatibility Mode which may work.
I would also suggest that you put your problem in the Win7 forum here, and maybe at MS.

Good luck

I've tried the Compatibility Modes, but unfortunately they dont work.
Could an admin please move this thread to the Win 7 forum?

Use the Marvell drivers. You will need to unzip them before installing via Update Drivers in Device Manager.

Uninstall your existing drivers by right clicking on the wireless device in device manager. Reboot.

Here is the driver for 64-bit Windows 7:

One of the features listed for Windows 7 was the ability to run a vitual machine with XP drivers installed on the Windows 7 desktop like it wasnt even a virtual machine...seamlessly without any problems. Just saying maybe you could look into that sort of thing until the adapter mfg put out a new driver. Good Luck!

Sorry for the slow reply, I've been away for a while
Daffy, I've tried your method, but once again, when i try to update through the drivers u gave me, it says that Windows has determinded my driver is updated... even though i dont think i have any drivers on...
What can i do?
Sgtpixel, I'll look into it, but I'm not really sure how it works :S
