compatibility wireless network...hardware to buy home premium Vist
Hello I just bought a computer system with vista home premium as the
platform. I have always used a airplus g wireless pci adapter d-link to
connect to my comcast wireless network. I looked on your web site and it says
windows partners with d-link. So I called d-link thinking I am doing
something wrong. THEY TOLD ME THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY COMPATIBLE HARDWARE FOR
VISTA YET. I am in desperate need of getting this computer up and running and
need to know what hardware is compatible with home premium vista so I can
connect to the internet...your help is GREATLY appreciated

Re: compatibility wireless network...hardware to buy home premium Vist
what is the model # of the wireless adapter?

if you connect to the Internet using a wired adapter with the pci
adapter in the machine and go to device manager, find the adapter
and Update Driver, it will pull down drivers from Windows Update.

The bulk of DLink PCI and pccard wireless NICs use an Atheros
chipset. Most of these are covered by the Atheros driver on WU.
