Hey guys i am trying to find a Pci Ethernet adapter to replace a busted onboard one. Problem is i cant seem to locate one that will definitely work with windows 7 64 bit, to be honest i am just not sure if they will work and when i read the specification it makes no mention of 64bit os support.

This may seem a bit Noobish to most tech here but i have done Ethernet replacements Dozens of times but the 64bit drivers is are getting the best of me.

So can anyone shed some light on the matter at hand or Point me to One i can buy,, Need it like YESTERDAY!

I use nics with a realtek chipset.

They have the best driver support that I have ever seen.

Thats what I would use, Its basically just a realtek card. There is a very high likelihood that windows will come with the drivers for that.

I am confident that it will work.

I think most new hardware now has drivers for 64bit Vista and 7 but its sometimes hard to find drivers for 64bit XP
