    I just wanted to see if anyone knew which Linksys wireless adapters (if any) are compatible with Windows XP Pro x64? I currently have the WMP54GX v1.0 which I can not get to work. I'm networking to a WRT54GX2 wireless router, so something with Wireless G and 108 mbps would be nice. Please give me any suggestions you have! Thanks!

    I think the new WMP54GR (with RangeBooster), using the Ralink RT61 chipset, is XP-64 compatible...

    To avoid all the XP-64 troubles, an other solution, could be to use a WRT (with DD-WRT for example) in client mode connected to your PC...

    Can I connect any wireless router to my pc in client mode and connect to the wireless router downstairs?

    Also, what do you mean by DD-WRT? Can you provide me with a model that would work in client mode? Thanks!

    Yes, DD-WRT is a third party firmware for Linksys WRT 54GL for example.
    You can plug PC's to replace the client adaptors.
    See the menu here !
    That works fine !

    Thanks for the info. Do you happen to know which wireless adapter has third party drivers that work with Windows XP x64? I tried talking to Linksys but they couldn't/wouldn't tell me which adapters have third party driver support.

    In short, I'm trying to purchase a new Linksys wireless G adapter that is supported in Windows XP x64 via third party drivers. I'm connecting the wireless adapter to a Linksys WMP54GX2 router. Thanks for all your help!
