AirStation Wireless-G won't work in Vista (64bit)

  KorgY 17:00 12 May 2008


I recently upgraded to Vista Ultimate 64 bit (I do video/Music etc, so needed more ram)

However, My Buffalo Airstaion Wireless Adapter click here to see the product, will simply not work at all.

I have had it working on Vista 32, and Windows XP, no problem. But when i try to set up the drivers from the CD, and also Buffalo's own Vista driver, i keep getting promps that the software cannot be loaded. Tried everything, but to no avail. can anyone help me on this?, I sense its a 64bit issue, but been looking for 64bit drivers and can't find any.

No 64bit drivers means no 64bit Buffalo adapter , 64bit OS's ( Vista and XP ) are SO fussy about drivers that they only accept WHQL signed drivers , nothing else will do . I suggest you have a look for a new adapter that can handle 64bit requirements .

Check some of these out (some have 64 bit support...Your Airstation is unlikely to ever have 64 bit drivers written for it.....I have a couple of D-link wireless adaptors which will work perfectly with XP, but are a no go with even 32 bit Vista...In general, 64 bit take up has been slow, and many manufacturers are simply not writing the drivers.
