If I get a chance, I may try a little more digging. Tony author of “the thread that would not die and did not involve COAX”. Gateway is sending a new Marvell Topdog under warranty. Dear Tony, Perhaps you are right. All I’ve seen in the posts above is “xp” and no mention of x64 um You can also try using the Windows utility instead of the Intel. It may be the way Vista deals with the Airport that’s confusing the device.

To install a driver, right-click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager, right-click the device, Update Driver, point it to the file where you saved the driver.
I tried them anyway! Sorry that one didn’t work out. However, my friend just may change his mind so I was watching my back door.
And don’t worry, you won’t want to be bringing Vista back It’s been a long time since this thread started, there are many options for a replacement PCI-e mini WiFi card.
I’m letting my Vista Ultimate rot in its drive bay for now. I thought mine was TopDog, but cannot be gatewayy Carefully remove the antenna wires with needle-nosed pliers, press-fit them with your index finger to install on the new card.
I did try several of the earlier Atheros drivers that said they were xp compatible and when I tried to install them they didn’t work.
Thanks again for all the info. Has anyone had success with witeless driver? A sample of a game called Warcraft played flawlessly. This may or may not be of help to you, trustin, but since this topic is still around I wanted to pass along what I had read about reverting to XP from Vista in general. Gateway was no help so I’ve got a call gqteway support email in to Marvell. BTW people still having trouble with Gateways might want to try poking around Acer’s site, since Acer bought out Gateway last year I’ll bet they’re sharing some hardware.
Who needs sound drivers? I found an XP Topdog driver on the Marvell site at the time, installing it did identify the device to XP as the Marvell “Topdog” previously “unknown device” but that’s it, still no functionality.
Gateway Official Site: Worldwide
People want machines that WORK, not offer excuses that you cannot do this and sorry that’s not compatible. Maybe a new post in forum Kaspersky antivirus installed and runs without any problems. I don’t know what version of xp you guys are loading, but the one I’m using is the x64 sp1.
Yes, the Windows installer should be able to delete the partition, I just like starting fresh. It’s all here Tony.
Since the drive was for a novice user I left gatewa entire GB as a single-partition boot drive. Almost nothing I had to do.

In control panel it tells me I need a driver for the Ethernet controller. Once all updates are complete, you can wlreless to the Gateway site and download whatever hardware drivers you’re missing. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Sorry I can’t be more help. I can’t seem to find the drivers that are XP compatilbe for the devices.
Gateway MT6458 laptop Wi-Fi device drivers
Has anyone tried lonebirch idea or his step by step plans? The computer won’t start with the Intel in it, could it be there are only two slots for the wires, when there are three wires?
The other computers in the office do not show reading this laptop. By the way-have you tried the Vista driver in XP??? Wwireless Acer will have better support?
