    Hey guys.

    I have some Vista 64-bit drivers that someone gave me.

    Everything seemed to work, EXCEPT my wireless.

    I checked out the package, and I don't see any Atheros 64-bit drivers or Marvel 64-bit drivers (but ethernet does work).

    I also tried the Boot Camp 2.1 update, but still, no go.

    Found the drivers.

    They're Atheros 7.3.1.42 drivers and they need to be installed through the device manager.

    You need to install 2.0 before 2.1 will install. Stupidly you don't even get an error message if you don't have 2.0.

    Somebody sent them to me.

    I don't have any place to upload them for you.

    I suggest going to some place like The Pirate Bay and downloading a torrent of the drivers. Do a search for "Boot Camp Drivers." You should get something called "Boot Camp Drivers.iso."

    It appears that includes 64-bit Vista drivers. It appears that it lacks Nvidia/ATi drivers as well as the wireless drivers.

    If you have an Nvidia video card, have no fear. Just go to laptopvideo 2 go and download drivers for your laptop (BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! You do need to replace a file).

    Then do a Google Search for Atheros 7.3.1.42. You'll need to install these drivers manually through the device manager.
