Ethernet card compatibility issue with vista, HELP!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm attempting to upgrade to Windows Vista Home Premium, apone thinking of doing such a thing i ran the windows vista advisor like a smart little boy that i am, it came back telling me my computer is just fine for running it.

Only thing my system seems to have a problem with are both my internet connection cards, 1 is my wireless USB card, and the other is a PCI card.

Wireless card name: 2Wire 802.11g USB Wireless LAN Card

PCI card name: Linksys LNE100Tx Version 2.0 Fast Ethernet PCI Card

Now i'm wondering are there any drivers out there that can make ether 1 of these be supported by windows vista home premium? or am i basically screwed for connecting to the internet until i get a new ethernet card?

To be honest with you even though the hardware may look like a different model the drivers can sometimes be very generic and you may find it would work fine for you. At the end of the day if they dont you can roll back the driver.

Since it looks like that driver comes right from the manufacturer, you should be alright. just make sure to save it to disk or thumb drive before you install.

Well the thing is, you cant roll back from Vista to XP can you? because once i upgrade from XP to Vista via CD then ill have too install these new drivers for my wireless 2wire USB card and once i do that and it still doesent work then how am i suppost to get internet right... i maybe wrong about rolling back to XP but its something im looking into if i need too do it.

If you can find drivers for it for Win 2003, then use them

I had a similar issue and was advised to use those drivers.

No I meant roll back the driver.

Also no...Once you login succesfully once after setup you may not Roll back to XP.
