    Just put a 64bit Athlon together, running XP 64. The old Dlink card I had has no compatible drivers, so I have decided to purchase a new wireless PCI card.

    Can anyone recomend a card that is compatible with XP64, and ideally has an Atheros chipset? (Not a major issue though)

    Do you HAVE to go wireless?

    Drivers for Atheros based cards are thin on the ground at the moment. You also have to be careful as the chipset used on a model of card can also depend on the revision number of it. However there are some about for the following :

    D-Link DWL-G520
    Drivers : http://america.giga-byte.com/Communication/FileList/Driver/64bit_wlan42052bin.zip

    Netgear WG511T
    Drivers : People over at PlanetAMD64 have confirmed the the above driver will also work with this card.
    *It's a generic Atheros driver so should work with any Atheros chipset based card..theory has it.

    Remember to check that it's got the Atheros chipset.

    For other cards/chipset drivers combos take a look in this thread :

    Until the new house is Cat5'd, yes!

    Thanks for the driver links. I'm currently running a 520, but I think it must be an old revision, as it doesn't like the drivers at all!
