I need to download the latest drivers for my MN-720. However, there is no
longer any information about MS broadband equipment or a driver link for the
equipment. Please tell where I can find the drivers for the MN-720.

You're right, the pages have disappeared.

After a long search, I finally found a link for you!
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=6790

Save the software carefully, you may never see it again after today!

Thanks, Cari.

Any idea why my desktop's MN-730 PCI adapter insists on calling itself an
MN-720 notebook adaptor?
Will there ever be a WPA2 or firmware update for the MN-720/MN-730?

Regards,
Chip

Microsoft stopped making the networking hardware in April, 2004. I serious
doubt they're going to supply any further updates since that section was
disbanded..

Those two cards (MN730/720) share the same driver set...

Doesn't really help you, but at least that's a bit of background for you...

Thanks Chris & Jason; I guess I'm SOL as far as updated or WPA-2 drivers go,
then...

Not necessarily. Check out Barb Bowman's blog:
http://www.mcemvp.us/bbowman/ Remember, though, you're going to need a
router which is WPA-2 compatible, and if you blow away your wireless adapter
or computer, it is your problem since what she talks about is totally
unsupported.

The link I posted is probably broken because you're using the web-based
newsgroup interface instead of a real news reader to access the newsgroups.
It works fine here. Try just typing in the link in your browser instead of
clicking on it.

And if you have no reason (like the boss won't let you), you can use a
regular news reader program (like Outlook Express, which comes with every
Windows installation) to access ALL Microsoft's newsgroups by setting up the
server - msnews.microsoft.com - for a News account. You can then access any
of the product groups without signing in, no password, and they're free to
anyone around the world.

That would allow you to do such things as "hide read messages" so you don't
need to slog through everything to find a thread of interest. You can also
color code you own messages, watch certain threads, etc., by setting rules.

Thanks; so, i reckon the MN-720/MN-730 use a Broadcom chipset similar to the
Truemobile 1470 in my Precision M70 notebook...

Almost forgot - here's the updated driver for the TrueMobile
1300/1350/1370/1400/1450/1470; this update adds SmartCard support, TPM
support & IBSS lockout.
