I have a Netgear router DG834G v3 running with Windows XP Home. If I get a new system running Vista, will this router work or do I need to download any new drivers, firmware, etc ?

Are you using the ethernet or the USB connections? Ethernet should work as normal but the USB could require a software update. Have you looked at the Netgear site?

Thanks for prompt reply. Am using Ethernet but have since found the site I need to access. There are new Vista drivers available.
