    Netgear have very quietly changed their support message from "x64 drivers are
    coming soon" to "we have no plans to support x64".

    See
    http://digg.com/hardware/NetGear_Turnaround:_No_Immediate_Plans_To_Support_Windows_XP_x64
    and http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/N101596.asp?answer_id=259441016

    Interesting that they claim if you install x64 then "all NETGEAR drivers and
    utilities on that computer may stop working! Of course, much other software
    and drivers will also stop working".

    Actually Netgear, I currently have x64 drivers for everything EXCEPT my
    wi-fi card!

    Thanks jabloomf1230,

    Yeah, I saw this driver mentioned on
    http://www.planetamd64.com/index.php?showtopic=5026 a while ago, but it
    didn't seem to work for me with my WG311 for some reason.

    Others have had more success though.

    It seems odd that Netgear would claim that it's too expensive and difficult
    to produce x64 drivers when their chipset supplier has apparently had a
    reference driver available for ages.
