I think the only way around this problem is to make the netgear software run right... which, in 64 bit win7 7000 build, it hangs when you are at the stage when you are supposed to plug the adapter in.

I also tried the other link you gave me to see if this was just an issue with drivermax... same problem before.

I have also removed the netgear software after install, and it had no effect on it.

how do you disable driver signature check to get it to work?

Also, this driver is avaiable for anyone on the netgear website, and you don't have to use drivermax which is annoying and useless tool, IMHO.

Anyway... if anyone can tell me how to disable driver signature check, I would be much obliged.

OKAY, anyone wanting to know how to do this in Win7 and Vista SP1 for that matter, here is the deal.

You can press F8 at start up to get temporary relief and this will allow you to use your unsigned driver, and until you have the next update to win7 this might not be too annoying for you, since bcdedit does not work anymore.

Look below at this article, i think it has a solution, but i didn't read it all the way through because I am just going to F8 for now.

I'll post updates.

I would not recommend doing this, it is a huge security risk.

has instructions to follow for Windows 7 and vista and friend also confirmed it works on 64bit as well as 32bit. cost is nothing compared to time one could spend.
highly recommend!
ideal when upgrading to win7
