onboard NIC died all i got laying around are these. several google searches and netgear site visits later i cant find a driver that is compatible with win7 64 bit for either of the two. win7 compatibility site says that the FA311 is plug n play yet it doesnt work help please !!!
Did Windows detect it? if it did chances are it would have installed a driver for it as it's a very common card. On the other hand if the card is faulty then it won't work, are you sure ther card is in good working order. Have you used it recently?
In any case these type of cards are cheap to replace.
