    Asus wireless LAN card

    I have a WL-138G that I would like to use under vista 64 not made the
    change yet had a look in Asus support and it's only has Winxp drivers, does
    that mean it a non starter?

    Yep. I have one of those under x64 Ultimate. However, you can get around by disabling the digital signing of the drivers during startup. But it's not much fun pressing F1 & F8 every time I boot.
    I did hear people who own the version 2 of this card have had more luck with drivers

    Try this
    if you want to be able to use the driver all the time without having to
    use f8 on every reboot

    run this command at an elevated command prompt

    Bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING ON


    you should get operation completed successfully
    no need for f8 any more

    Thanks Kue2! I tried that and it worked. You get the side affect of having "Test Mode" in each corner of your screen, but that's better than having to F8 every boot. However, I have noticed that my Vista now has a problem with my Marvell driver for my card! When I try to install the driver, it stats that it it won't work with 64bit, I can't win!!

    Anyhow, I'm now shopping for a new card, as they're only about 20. Any suggestions for a reliable, stable WLAN PCI card that works with x64 Vista?

    Kue2 - Apologies for the stupid question, but if I own an ASUS WLAN PCI, what would I search for at Marvell?
