i and looking into setting up a wireless system. my operating system on my personal comp system is windows 64bit pro. i cant find any wireless solutions that have 64bit drivers for there wireless adaptors. anyone with any suggestions on products??
the other question i have is that same computer is a gamer. i was interested in 802n. but still no 64bit drivers. are the 802n's worth the extra $$ for the speed? 3 computers will share the wireless. 1 64bit and 2 XP's. only the 64bit will have the faster adaptor.
thank you in advance

Don't use any USB, PC-Card or PCI solution. Use the ethernet connection client devices instead so no driver is required. I used an older DSL-900AP+ recently for remote monitoring that used to be wired. Since it's embedded OS didn't do anything more than ethernet this solved the need to cut the cord.

It's a wireless client that connects to your ethernet port and will be driverless. There are dozens of solutions like this but I had the wrong part number.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
