      I have. My Netgear WG311v3 Wireless PCI Card did not work when I installed the Windows 7 RC a few months back. Probably because I couldn't connect to Windows Update to get the drivers.

      Other than that, everything worked fine. My Dad has even said he was going to upgrade his laptop to Windows 7, and he's an XP fan.

        Well, that was the RC you had issues with... Have you tried to see if it now works on the RTM? Because I know for me, Windows Update was able to find a lot of drivers for my Dell notebook, including drivers I needed for the built-in fingerprint scanner and webcam. When I was running Win7 RC, Windows Update did not offer any of those driver updates.

          I have a Netgear WG111v2 USB adaptor on my stepson's computer. Had to hook it up to the router and allow Windows to download the drivers from Windows Update to get it working. Netgear hasn't updated the drivers on their site yet but have submitted new ones to Windows Update. Go Figure. But once I hooked it up to the lan and plugged the card in, it installed immediately instead of trying to use the disk that came with the device.

            Unfortunately, my computer is on the other side of the house from the router. It would have been a major pain in the ass to move the entire computer so I can wire it up to the router to download one driver.

            Luckily, I remembered I had downloaded the driver a few weeks beforehand, in a (non-successful) attempt at getting Fedora + ndiswrapper to work with my card.

              How quickly we forget and abandon old technology. Sneakernet still works nearly 100% of the time.
              Anybody who says "it can't be done" will usually be interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.

                    Ive just upgraded to Win 7 and so far i think its pretty good.

                    I bought a whole new system for it. I found Vista to be horrible.*
