    I ran into that problem on the 64bit RC where the application wouldn't see the volume panel icon placed in the system tray as you would on the 32bit for the Creative sound card used here. I ended up pinning that to the taskbar from the Start menu.

    The builtin wireless generally works off of the environment once you have an account with a satelite ISP. Then everything reflects signals making the environment the antennae. Addon devices along with onboard device controllers are the things that have the need for drivers.

    No modem drivers needed here where the 64bit RC already had the nic card drivers installed. Generally the odd drivers are located through the MS update site where you look at the optional hardware/software drivers for anything missing.

    i managed to find x64 drivers for my wireless card anyway - i think i'm set now
    i might install it in a few days - one thing i'm worried about
    i connect my laptop to my hdtv - and i use intel's gfx program to configure it - if i install the driver should this program come with it? - it's basically intel's version of ati's catalyst control centre.

    Look at any release notes when going to the download page. Often that will show if there's an application included or just an updated driver set. Sometimes the application part is a separate item by itself.

    Once you have 7 on you can substitute the Vista 64bit application if the 7 update lacks the application part. That would be one way around that while still seeing the newer drivers themselves go on.

    At first I had to see the 64bit Vista application for the sound card here used along with the 7 beta drivers on the 64bit 7000 build. Now Creative has both for 7 available. It worked however. First see if the generic drivers will detect the hdtv by themselves however.

    Otherwise you'll need the Intel app on to see if that will detect and allow the configuration to work. Also check for the force tv detection item to see if that is included in that as seen with the Catalyst.

    finally got RC1 to recognize my Wireless connection and everything now runs smooth as silk and fast as lightning it's amazing how great Win7 is vs. XP & Vista.

    That's great! Now don't forget to write down the steps you took in order to get things going for you there. It's a good reference for anything that comes up later.

    When you go into the Device Manager you'll find the Yellow Exclamation mark over the Network Controller Device.
    When it brings up the install screen tell it to use the driver from a specific location.
    After you've visited Linksys' Website to download the driver package they provide just dump it on your hard drive in a place you know where it is.

    Now the specific location will be the Driver folder where the Driver for the Wireless card is. Just select the Driver and click install, the computer IMMEDIATELY recognizes it and will bug you for the next 5 - 10 min. about setting up a home network lol

    With the cable modem here I simply plug that into a nic card I added in without any need for drivers. That works like a champ!

    It's getting connected once I add a Linksys or other router inbetween with or without drivers. That way I can connect a second system by hard wire or the wireless usb adapter. You can connect to the router but don't get past the modem.

    Instead you'll click on the red "X" to use the network troubleshooter and won't get anywhere even after recycling power on both the modem and router. I'll get back on that one sooner or later.
