Default USB Wireless Network Adapter

Does anyone know of one that works with Vista 64... I've seen a couple out there that supposedly to work.

I thought I would check here first instead of going through all that trial and error BS.

Thanks in advance

I did a bit research and found a great Microsoft site called Windows Vista Compatibility Center to check all hardware products with either 32 bit and 64 bit drivers.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...ge=1&v=Netgear

I found ASUS, D-Link and NETGEAR wireless USB adapters now has 64 bit drivers. To check if the product have 64 bit driver available by click on product on the listing then click on 64 bit Compatibility status tab or click on 64 bit Windows Vista on search filter to list all products have 64 bit driver.
