I couldn't see a GA311 driver for Win7/64 on Netgear's site -- did the GA311 install properly using Win7 built in drivers ? Check Control Panel, System Device Manager.

You shouldn't have to but I'd turn off the Windows (and any other) firewall.

Hi Salarjavadi,
I have the exact same problem, onboard ethernet quit, and I got the GA311. It says on the box VISTA supported but get update online. I have the update and it stops saying the wizard is not supported by win7. I am going back and forth with netgear and am ready to take the junk back to Fry's tonight.
