    Wireless Networking

    At present I have a US Robotics 5416 Wireless Network card that Vista states
    is not compatible. Is anyone aware of any wireless network products from the
    UK that will work with Vista Beta 2 (PCI cards or USB). Many thanks, agc

    Not sure if you found a solution but I will offer one, please though, make
    sure you post back and let everyone know if this helped or not.

    I had a similar problem with my D-Link 524 Router and a wireless D-Link usb
    G122 adapter, Vista stated that my device was incompatible with the router.
    Turns out that I forgot, when I setup Vista, I disabled all the WPA settings
    within my Router and was trying to connect using those very settings from
    within Vista. I guess Vista, not knowing the Router configuation, figured my
    adapter was incompatible with my router because Vista does not display a
    wireless open connection as being open like XP does. It took some digging but
    I finally reallized this by allowing Vista to Diagnose the problem.
