Which specific model. Please be accurate about this as Linksys are one of those annoying manufacturers where a single missed letter or symbol will have us hunting for entirely the wrong thing.

Do you know which chipset the linksys card is built around?

I know that Realtek and Broadcom WiFi chips are supposed to have 64bit support.

Thank you for the response. It is Linksys Wireless-G 2.4ghz PCI adapter. Model # WMP54G. The CD will not complete a install. Same with those from linksys.com
Im pretty sure its my XP Pro x64 edition. Thoughts? I know there are sites popping up with compatible apps, and I am monitoring the ones I know of. Just need a lil help.
Unless there are other options ..

The original version (v2?) uses a broadcom chipset, the second version (v4) uses a Ralink RT2500 chipset.

If it's a Ralink based card, you can get the 64bit drivers here.
If it's a broadcom chipset, the drivers are supposed to be in the OS already.

The drivers on the CD and on Linksys' website are for 32bit OSes only. If a driver doesn't explicitly mention 64bit support, then it's probably only a 32bit one. You cannot mix the 'bitness' of the OS and the drivers - if you have a 64bit OS, you *have* to have 64bit drivers.

Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information

Expand the menu Components -> Network

You will see something like the screenshot below. The important fields are the name, adapter type and product type.

Adapter type must be 802.11 otherwise you're looking at your wired NIC.
The name will be something like "Linksys WMP54G v2" as you'd expect.
The product type will (usually) tell you the controller - "Broadcom BCM25xx wireless network adapter"

If someone wanted to upload those drivers to the files section it would be really cool

can never have too many 64 bit network card drivers!
