2 out of 5 eggs I hate these things! 12/16/2008

This review is from: NETGEAR FA311 Network Interface Card 10/ 100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros:

Good cards if supported. Simple, basic, affordable.

Cons:

NO 64 BIT DRIVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Switched over to Vista64 and it didn't work. I have an onboard Ethernet but I wanted both of them functional, had to go to Vista32 to get it working.

Other Thoughts:

Contacted Netgear on the issue and they just said NO drivers were made, ever going to be made for 64 bit OS'es. Netgear has awful support and they don't support their products.

I got 5 of these stupid things for $1 on a popular online auction site, now I'm stuck with 5 useless boards that won't ever work on new OS'es. They're well built cards but the support is terrible.
