If netgear doesn't list Vista software for your router, then it probably doesn't exist.

You shouldn't need drivers for your router. Do you mean your network card? (try this: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...NVIDIA_RIS.zip)

Agreed. You've been looking in the wrong places. Drivers for the network card are what you need, routers require no software installation. Netgear is pretty good though.

hmm right ok, done a bit of calming down now , managed to dl everything on my vista os and c + p it over to the xp partition, all tho i am still unable to get online on my xp os, the setup connection wizard is useless.

so you think i need to install my network card? hmm, doesnt that come with motherboard drivers actually? the only driver ive been unable to get due to asus being a overloaded all morning @_@

im trying to get em now but every time i get close it just freezes :@ who the hell is sad enough to be downloading motherboard drivers on boxing day ?? (

Go to Device Manager and see what components are missing drivers.

To access your router, go to a command line and type "ipconfig". The default gateway is your router's IP. Just type that into a browser to access the router.
Once again...
