F you netgear

Post#1 » 23 Mar 2011, 09:55

Im never buying anything from them that ever needs a diver. Fuuuuuuuck. How hard is it to just work with windows? Why program your own little handler program when windows has functions that will do it for you AND DO IT RIGHT.

Depending on what you're setting up, you can usually get a stripped-down firmware-only driver to suit the chipset.

I did this in the early days of using Vista/7 with a Netgear wireless card and it worked flawlessly.

From what I can tell, that card has three different chipsets (Atheros, Marvel, Ralink) across multiple revisions, so it's no wonder you had troubles!
