    Hello,

    I currently have a dual-boot of wnidows XP and windows 7.
    When I try to use my motherboard's Cd to install the wireless internet driver, it says that it isn't compatible.
    I have an Asus m2n32 sli deluxe motherboard.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    try to install it under "troubleshoot compatibility"

    right click on icon/select "troubleshoot compatibility"/ try recommended settings/start the program

    from there most problem programs have installed

    Assuming that your motherboard's driver cd is for Windows XP?

    Could you post some information about you wireless card (type, model etc)?

    Yormungandr,
    Sorry to hear that you are having some issues with you wifi card. What driver set is it? You might want to consult the Windows 7 forum at microsoft.com/springboard, there may some information about compatibility with your system, please keep in mind, if your system was stable before, and you have the Vista Drivers they will work with Windows 7, so you may want to revert to them.
    Thanks,
    Glen

    you could connect with a cable to your router and get updates which should give you a wireles driver, or you could find generic drivers and get your wireless running with one of those.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, but the problem has been solved a few days ago.
    Is there anyway to get this thread locked, perhaps?
