Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Welcome to Seven Forums Zebdog.

I see a driver for Vista x64 here: Marvell: Support. You should be able to install that in Compat mode to work in 7. Compatibility Mode.

Hope this helps.

i downloaded the driver ,,but i still have the problem.
it is only happening sometimes and on opening the network center it shows a yellow triangle between pc and network symbols. when i double click the yellow triangle it diagnoses that the ip address is missing and then resolves the problem and then i am back on the internet.
