    Haha you got me. Do you have the cd with all the chipset drivers? The Vista ones should work.
    You could also try the Belkin website and find a driver there. I will have a quick look.

    Sorry im trying to do 2 things at once.

    Let me get this straight. The wireless card is made by Belkin, but the drivers on the cd dont work, and Windows didnt find a driver for you ethernet controller?
    Who makes the ethernet controller?
    Are you using 32bit or 64bit?
