Hi Experts,

I have recently purchased 2 units from the Senao wireless mini PCI (Aries 2), the units work fine with the 32 bit windows, however, I am unable to use them with the Windows XP 64 bit operating system. Any ideas if a driver does exist for this operating system, or how I can get them to work (maybe another manufacturer's x64 driver?). Senao don't even bother responding to my e-mails! The barebone system I am using them with is an Iwill ZPC 64.
Cheers
Sam

I doesn't speak specifically about the Senao card, but tell you how to get a driver for XP64 for just about all miniPCI, PCI, and USB cards.

Thanks Rick, tried the above ralink driver but it did not work. I think the drivers that can be used in this card are Conexant or Intersil however I am unable to find x64 drivers for them. Any thoughts ...

Windows x64 is very badly supported in terms of all types of drivers, and this doesn't seem to be high priority of the manufacturers nor of m$. You'll have to find a wlan card which explicitly has drivers for the 64 bit version of windows.

You did not even make any recommendations for possible solutions as I did.  At the least. you should split the points.

I did recommend getting a supported card. "There are no drivers" can sometimes be the correct answer too. According to the asker, he tried your links and they didn't work.

But, in the process, I did point him to cards that will work.

OK, I didn't interpret it that way, that you were suggesting another card, but it might be tkaen that way. I'll make a new recommendation in that case.
