What network card do you use?
I've been having this problem ever since Windows Vista 64bit, a problem I've been trying to find a solution to for the last 3 weeks. It's REALLY frustrating to realize that the problem was the network card. I was using a RT2561 branded as a Sabrent wireless card. This card would work fine in normal use, downloading, but when it came to uploading or anything JAVA, it would crash and hardlock the computer. So I thought it might be the OS, then I installed Windows 7 and I still have this problem, even after switching hdds/memory. The problem lies within the network card because once it's removed, theres no crashing.
So I want to ask, what wireless network cards do you guys use that work with Windows 7 64bit. I know there are a few RT61 chipsets out there (Linksys WMP54G) but the RT61 doesn't work well with my machine as it has more than 4GB of memory (article: Ralink RT61 or (RT256x/RT266x) causes freezing Windows 7 x64)
Sad but funny, I went to the store to buy a bunch of network cards to try, and low and behold, most of them use the RT61 chipset . Unfortunately, my location doesn't permit any wired connection. What network cards have you guys found compatible? Do you have 4GB Ram+?
