Yet another Vista x64 and wireless question

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by GraphicvsMaximvs, Jun 15, 2006.

  1. I have an Averatec 6240, with an internal Ralink wireless adapter. (Why? Good
    Question... :p)

    I did an upgrade to Vista x486 from XP, and had many other problems, but
    internet connectivity and networking was not one of them. I knew this was
    likely driver and software related.

    Sick of problems - so I did a clean install, this time with the x64
    version, build 5384 (The 6240 has a AMD64). Looks and runs great thus far,
    except the following...

    Now, after downloading the 64bit bersion of the wireless driver from and reinstalling to support the card -
    nothing happens. No connectivity, and no card or network detected. The driver
    supports Win9x/2K/XP/x64. I know it does not say Vista....

    Thoughts? Short of ending the grand experiment?

  3. The driver may be for 64-bit, but it may not be Vista. I assume Ralink did
    not have any Vista drivers for you?

    Don't give up just yet on Vista. Since it is a test machine anyways, why
    not play around with it awhile?
