Sorry, where does it say that is compatible with my card? or Are you using this driver because it is the only one you found for x64 system?

Also, why do you need to install in compatibility mode?

Under compatibility tab , it says:
  • Wireless 1490 Dual-Band WLAN MiniCard
  • Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard
  • CDSK,DRVR,NTWK,WRLES,WW
Which card do you exactly have?


thanks

Hi vlsi99xx, Yes it is the only driver I could find to work with win 7 64bit on the 1500 lan card
It's a vista driver so needs to b compatible with win7 Compatibility Mode

What connection speed are you getting on the 801.11n network?
Are using 5Ghz or 2GHZ setting in your router.

I'm using a netgear wndr3300 for all the laptops at home we use 2ghz ,for the desktops we use 5ghz , Doing it this way saves messing about with the laptops when used outside the home
