Basically netgear doesn't have a driver for windows 2003... lame...

I tried installing the XP, it seems to work fine but it will never get an IP address, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Josh

go to control panel->network connections->right click the wireless nic->choose properties->on the general tab scroll down and click internet protocol(tcp/ip)->click the properties button-> to make sure dhcp is enabled on the nic make sure obtain ip automatically has a dot next to it. If dhcp is enabled on the nic, make sure dhcp is enabled on the wireless router, also on the router if mac filtering is enabled make sure the mac address for the card has been added.

All of that is fine, it has to be a driver issue i think :/

I had a similar issue with an asus usb wireless card and it was the card that was bad.

Yea I found that too, but the download doesn't exist... it just takes you to netgear's site, which isn't windows 2003

Unfourtunatly you may need to purchase a different wireless card, but after looking all that i found where made for mainly win2k and xp, some had drivers for nt, 98 and linux but couldnt find any with a specific driver for a server os.

Turns out the XP Pro driver worked, although I'm going to use those linux ones you found, so thanks
