I've upgraded to an "n" wireless router as part of going over to cable for all my services. This involved installing the router in a different location to my old one meaning I'd have to go wireless on my desktop. No problem I think, and order up a Netgear USB adapter, model WN111v2. I'm running XP Pro 64 Bit on my desktop and I've now discovered that Netgear don't provide any compatible drivers. I've checked on their website and that's what they say "we don't support XP 64 bit operating systems".

After doing a bit more research it appears that there is very little, if any, support for XP 64 Bit wireless. I haven't found any yet, anyway.

Does anyone know of a manufacturer who has a wireless adapter, either PCI or USB, that has drivers for XP 64?

Or are there any third party drivers for the Netgear adapter I've already got?
