Need a 64bit Compatible PCI Adapter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

My computer runs the internet off a wireless adapter and my recent upgrade to 64bit has caused complications. After a lotta research, it seems my adapter doesn't work with over 2 gigs of ram or with WoW or torrents, so I'd like to get a new one. There's a million on newegg, but the reviews aren't really helpful because I want to make sure my adapter runs online games smoothly (mostly WoW) and torrents too. The cheaper the better too.

I'm thinking of this but I dunno. Any help?

Don't bother; that thing will be much too slow if the reviewer is correct about it being USB 1.1.

I was in the same boat as you. I also recently upgraded to Vista 64 bit from 32 bit and my adapter no longer worked. I found this at a nearby Microcenter : http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0298282.
I checked their website and they do offer drivers for vista 64 bit. I've had the card for almost a week now with zero problems. There's also a 10 dollar rebate aswell.

Thanks for you help guys, I went with the MSI one corky posted. Free shipping and no tax from Amazon is too good to pass up.

BTW, you can be sure the PCI card is 64-bit because it has two notches.
