    Does anyone know any branded high profile network cards that work out of the box with the current Vista builds?

    The one on my motherboard has gone pete tong and a 3com I tried from work isn't getting anywhere and the last drivers for it on the 3com site were released 4 years ago (great).

    There are XP drivers, but I need Vista ones - but there are none.
    So I wanna buy a good nic that is confirmed to work with Vista.

    I haven't seen any manufacturers that are branding or supplying driver support for Vista as of yet out of the box, but things can always be played with. I know you are an Nvidia man yourself, the machine you are working with doesn't have the nforce chipset I assume?

    Will check around some online retailers today and see if I can find anything with those chipsets or controllers.

    Nice :)
    Might try 32bit Vista first actually, might be in there for some reason.
