Sorry to hear that.

As there is only support up to Win XP not even Vista it looks like your only option is to replace your card. Here are a few:

Newegg.com - Network Card, NIC, NIC Card, Network Adapter Card, Network Interface Card, Wireless Network Adapter Card, Wireless Adapter

You can try the XP driver in compatibility mode. download the driver to your desktop>find the setup.exe file>click properties>check the run in compatibility mode>drop down menu XP open and run as administrator. Might work. Fabe Compatibility Mode

Try compat mode, if not there are a few tricks you can do. Though apparently XP and Vista/7 have a newer driver setup. So you might need something newer.... Is it onboard? You might look for the Motherboard Chipset drivers, try the motherboards website if it's onboard.

drivers try

I've just installed an evaluation copy of Win7, on my old Dell D600 laptop. I'm having similar driver problems. Ethernet works out of the box, but I can't get wireless to work - the XP driver available on Dell's website won't run. And compatibility mode is greyed out (presumably because it's an evalutaion version so free).

What I don't understand, is when I installed Ubuntu linux on this same laptop, everything works out of the box. Why can't MS do that?
(I remember years ago (mid 90's) spending ages installing linux and searching the internet for drivers and ways of correcting problems - but now it seems to be that linux the easy one to install!)

Any suggestions on getting the driver.
I also get reminders saying there's a problem with the driver for Network Controller.

Thanks for any ideas ..

Have you tried turning digital signing off?
to do this press F8 during the BIOS startup then in the advanced startup options
disable digital signing. then try install the driver. It worked for me

Is it really so important to save 6 EUR or 8 USD for a new card?
