I'm sure many of you are as frustrated as I am that Linksys has yet to provide Vista 64-bit drivers for the LNE100TX. I happen to work in the IT field and frankly there is no excuse for this. Vista has been out for two years now, and most people are buying the 64-bit version of the OS. Even more frustrating, this card is still being sold in retail outlets as a current item, WITH NO VISTA DRIVERS! Yes, it's almost unbelievable. Which is why I have decided to take matters into my own hands, since apparently, Linksys is doing jack to resolve the situation.
After doing some research, I found that the LNE100TX uses the same hardware as the "Infineon an983b". However, the 64-bit drivers are virtually impossible to find. After exhaustive research, I found out that Windows Update has 64-bit drivers for the an983b, not for Vista, but XP 64-bit. Luckily, these drivers work for Vista 64-bit as well. I have tested these drivers and they work perfectly with the LNE100TX running in Vista 64-bit. Personally, I'll never buy another Linksys product for as long as I live, but for those of you that have already made the mistake... I have provided the drivers on my personal website, so you don't have to search through Microsoft's hellishly user unfriendly update site.

I had a problem when i tried to install it in vista64bit. It says that windows encountered a problem installing the driver. "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". Under xp 32 bit works just fine, so i know the card its not bad.Any ideas?

It does appear the first link is now dead, since I downloaded these a while back and they got my computer's internet working, I'll be nice enough to get them uploaded to several places hoping one of the links will remain active for a while lol.
Will edit this post with more links if I mange to get it uploaded more places.
