    Hi

    It's a Ralink based Rt6 (rt2561) based chipset wifi card, i've tried the latest Ralink drivers from their web site, still no connection ???

    I've heard that all 64 bit Os have this trouble with the wep key who is changed or converted in length ???

    I have no acces way to the router .. it's a shared one amongst many users, im the only one in 64 bits version.

    With 32 bits Os, no problems at all

    But i have 8 gigs of ram and i whanted a 64 bit Os to have a maximum Ram available.


    thanks

    I have a Wi-Fi card with this chipset (D-Link), there is a driver in windows update for this chipset, works fine. Don't install the software just the driver and you won't have problems.

    After doing some research on the issue I have found that 64 bit operating systems have an issue with the syncing of WEP. Not sure there is anything you can do.

    You're not using an Ad-Hoc network are you? In Ad-Hoc, in Vista and Win7, it won't save your password or automatically connect unless you make a startup script.
