Hello everyone,
I am currently using Win 7 x64 since it'S first official release (not the RC)and my WLAN card was working fine until the 2 weeks ago.
It is a cheap abit airpace WLAN card.

2 weeks ago, my WLAN card started to stop and run again after I have restarted the PC, stop, restart the PC, run, stop, and so on...
It is really annoying...

I think I have to buy one, but
I don't really know which one could run without any problem under Win 7 x64. I have read in some forums, that it is difficult to find one that can run 100% problem free.

Can anyone please recommend one ? (Brand is not a problem. USB or PCI is not a problem)
I need your help.
Thanks

Is this article any help? You may need to copy and paste - links don't seem to work for me at the moment.

I'm not aware of many compatibility issues with WLAN cardsin W7, but I have a Linksys Wireless N PCI card on my W7 for over 3 months now and I haven't had a problem with it yet.

I had a problem with my(now broken) Abit airpace once.
The driver used for VISTA x64 didn't work and I have to use other driver (Atheros) as recommended from someone in this forum.
I have been using Win7 for months and no problem appeared...
My card worked fine until 2 weeks ago... so I guess..it is broken..
Then I searched in various forums...many people are having problems with the drivers for Win7 x64...
And I couldn't find any new Abit Airpace in stores near home...So..I think it is better to ask before buying
