    Hey guys,

    After installing windows Vista, two things dont work.

    1. Sound Blaster xFI
    2. No board network card

    First off with the network card. Windows installs the drivers, however
    nother working, its set to limited connection. I went to nvidia's website and
    it doesnt include the network drivers in the nForce driver download.

    Anyways else have a problem like this?

    Yea, there are no *working* drivers yet for the xFI that I am aware of. At
    least for Vista 65bit.

    Hi, On my system Vista had installed the network drivers for my nForce2
    on board network card and it runs stable. Check device manager to see if
    Vista have installed them, but may be your card is not getting and IP
    address from a DHCP server, as I guess for that "limited connection"
    message.

    That's my problem! I'm only running the 64 bit version. How do I get the
    65 bit version?

    Too stupid for a beta OS.

    When you help someone like this they will just be back in a few more
    days with more stupid question.

    This group is being flooded with moronic questions:
    How do I get a product key
    Where do I get a driver for xyz hardware
    Won't install on my lapotop
    Won't install on my computer circa 1968
    My crappy video card won't run aero glass (the sky is falling)
    My crappy sound card doesn't work
    Can't figure out how to activate
    Will my 16 bit program from 1992 run on Vista
    How long can I use Vista Beta
    How do I dual boot
    I NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO GET XP BACK
    cannot delete windows.old file

    Ignore them, children should only listen to adult conversations, not
    be incouraged to join in.

    Fernando, Vista did install the Network driver but I still get the limited
    connection. When I do the Internet Wizard, it does not see my router. Any
    ideas why this is happening? Where is the Command Prompt for me to see what
    IP address the adaptor has? Thanks

    As Zapper said, open a command window and type "ipconfig /all" to see
    your network card configuration. In addition, type "ipconfig /release"
    and then "ipconfig /renew" to obtain a new IP address from your router.

    If it doesn`t work, you can try setting up an IP manually, but it
    involves to know your router's subnet/mask configuration.
