Has ANYONE got a laptop with one of these cards in it and got it to work on either Vista X-64 or W7 X-64. 32 bit versions of both OSe's work fine.

I've installed the latest drivers -- Windows reports as working fine but displays Unknown Network Limited Connectivity.

I've tried all the fixes such as disabling the iphelper service, disabling IPV6 and creating the registry key DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag 0 as per microsoft site and other various Internet forums. - Absolutely no joy --still get Limited connectivity on Unknown network. The Wireless card works fine on X-64. I know the built in Lan card is OK since XP runs OK and Windows 7 X32 (what I'm using at the moment).

I've connected this laptop up to 3 different routers -- they can't ALL be faulty :D:D.

This is a bit of a show stopper on Windows 7 -X64 (and even Vista X-64) as I do need to use a LAN not wireless from time to time.
