Somebody on here Vista'd the card.

I did, and my brother did.

I described the installation process in the member review but you would be very lucky if those things are unchanged in win7.

My brother just put the card in and clicked install with the vista64 drivers which are on the 'net and it worked for him, see the third post in the topic.

Tried the lastest Abit drivers, says no card detected, also tried generic drivers from the wizard but some conflict with them annoyingly. Going to try taking the card out and putting it back in a different PCI-e slot, as lets face it, that is how we fix most PC problems anyway... :D I can see why this card was so cheap! It does have an Atheros though, which is awesome, if only it worked

Ok, tried removing the card, and moving it to a different PCI-e slot. It tried to auto install software and installed the Atheros thing fine, but the Abit thing did not install. I then tried to set it to install pointing it as system32. After finding and trying to install the software, a lovely Blue Screen of Death greeted me. NDIS.SYS.
Help me OC3D, you are my only hope!

I was looking at having to use them but I cant seem to do what I want. But I am certain that they have atheros 5006 and 5008. Just no the 7s which i needed.
