    Check out www.linksys.com/vista for info on supported adapters from Linksys. I guess more adapters will be added to the support list sooner or later.

    No support for the WMB54G :-( $100 down the drain...

    Anyone other than me think that list looks short, guess Vista just not for me as it doesn't include

    PSUS4 (or any printserver as far as I can see, but I'm sure this will work!)
    WPC11 v4 (yes old...)
    WPC54GS V1 (Broadcom drivers do support and Vista drivers exist)
    WUSB54 v<4
    NSLU2 (can't see why it doesn't just work!)

    Hey, WUSB54Gv4 indeed has drivers there...

    WPC54GS has been notified as 'coming soon'... since all WPC54GS versions use the same driver, the 2.1 driver should also work with other versions, is my guess.

    None for the WPC54GX?! Bummer!

    My WUSB54G has no version number on the outside, suspect it is earlier than V4.

    Note how specific they are in the list about which versions. I suspect a list of missing current in use Linksys models with version No variants would be longer than those published!

    I guess we have to vote with our feet and pocketbooks. If I upgrade to VISTA, my two WPC54GX and two WPC54GX4 are not supported. Linksys wants you to buy are new routers and NICs and forget the money you spend on them. They knew new device drivers were necessary under VISTA and they continued to sell out the WPC54GX4 and other SRX NICs knowing they would be useless under VISTA. Corporate greed at its finest.

    Fret not :) I just (clean) installed Ultimate Vista (complimentary copy as I am an MS Technical BETA tester)... I plugged in a newly bought PCMCIA to PCI adapter (Ricoh R5475A chipset) and my WPC54GX to it. The PCMCIA to PCI adapter was automatically recognized during the Vista installation. Then I plugged in the WPC54GX... Of course it was not recognized!!! :mad:

    I just downloaded the latest driver from here http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...goBlobs&blobwhere=1130803979440&ssbinary=true. Then extracted the file to my desktop. I just pointed Vista to install te drivers from the folder and voila!:cool: I got me a wireless desktop working great with my WRT350N :wink: :biggrin: :cool:

    I'm one happy un-wired bloke :)

    WPC54Gv2 does not have Vista drivers. This card was poorly supported in XP, now with vista I think it will be a lost battle.

    Basically TI based wifi cards are not a good option for Vista (at least for the time been).

    I can confirm that the NSLU2 works with Vista using the NSLU2's default settings (although I did change the workgroup and IPs accordingly). Not sure if logging in as a user works correctly under Vista since I have guest access enabled and all of my PCs use that.

    Vista

    Well, you can all just bug the chipset manufacturers I guess instead of the vendor....
