SMCWPCIT-G xp64 driver

Hi ppl

Recentely I upgraded my pc to winxp64 and i'm running a amd64. The problem I have is the SMCWPCIT-G wireless adapter. The drivers on the cd are for 32 bits xp, and during installation, in the last stage , the installation just hangs and it stays there. I talked with SMC suppert and they told me they don't have and do not intend to make 64 native drivers.
Does anyone know where can i find a drivers for my pci wireless adapter?
Thx

ummmmm... if the maker of the card is telling you they have no intention of supporting an OS you might be dead in the water my friens. It might be time to take that card back and get one from a make that will support the OS your using.

Thanks for answering

As SMC don't make their own chips for Wireless, it looks like it's probably one of a number of standard WiFi chipsets. It looks like the chip is probably an Atheros AR5212. You might find that other AR5212 drivers will work your card.

Edimax have a card (EW-7325Ig) that's based on the the AR2414 chipset. They have drivers at this URL. You could try them and see if they'll drive your hardware at all.

No problem! I'm glad it works for you. I do not know why SMC have decided not to release 64bit drivers, when Atheros have made them available.

That link to the Edimax drivers is now dead. I cannot find these drivers anywhere. Does anyone have a link or can send me the drivers please?
