Netgear WG311v3 on Windows 7

Hi! I'm italian... sorry for my bad english Smiley Surprised
I've searched for all the web but I've found nothing. :mad:
I've got Microsoft Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100 and I've got a Netgear WG311v3 PCI-Adapter. My motherboard is an ASUS P5GD1 PRO.
My Wi-Fi PCI Adapter works in Windows XP and in Windows Vista too, but it isn't working in Windows 7 RC1; Windows Update doesen't find any driver.
I've already installed the Vista driver (Netgear Smart Wizard v3.1) on Win7 with "Compatibility mode", but it isn't working Smiley Sad . Can somebody help me? :confused: Thanks a lot...

RC stands for release candidate and these still in beta stage

You more likely need to wait .

Hi (again)...
I've found the drivers for Windows 7, but from the "Device Manager" I see this message: "Netgear Wg311V3 54Mbit Wireless adapter - This device cannot start (Code 10)". :confused: Can somebody help me (again), please?? Smiley Happy
Thanks...

code 10 usually means IRQ issue.

check IRQ sharing on the devices the uses same IRQ

Re: Netgear WG311v3 on Windows 7

Sorry, but how can I change the IRQ? Maybe there is a conflict with my Ethernet Controller (integrated with motherboard) and my WG311v3. And How can I see what are the devices that use the same IRQ? I've already tried to disable my Ethernet Controller but the Wi-Fi card doesen't work again. Help me please... I need Wi-Fi Smiley Sad

Re: Netgear WG311v3 on Windows 7

Hi everybody! Sorry (again)...
Do you think that my WG311v3 is going to work in the Build 7201? This is a Pre-RTM Build... maybe Microsoft has fixed some drivers bugs...
Can my Wireless PCI Adapter work in this Build?
(sorry again for my bad english...) Thank you Smiley Wink
