The v1.80 drivers I've been using in XP work in 32-bit Vista with my v.1
model (Mine's is a FA311 v1 revB model, check the label on your card for the
exact model/revision). Vista warns you that the drivers aren't signed, but
you can install them anyway on 32-bit Vista, not so sure about 64-bit. I
don't know how stable they'll be for heavy p2p use, but for general browsing
they seem to work perfectly. Have a look on the net for the v1.80 drivers, if
you can't find them let me know and I'll either host them for you, or email
them to you.
