    I know this is an old post, but hopefully if there are still any
    MS Networking Hardware users out there this summary will be useful.

    While helping a some friends configure their old NM-510 for a new
    desktop, I found a post by drcliffs on Tom's Hardware with this link:

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=33104

    That let me download a file named "MSBNSoftware.exe". I ran the
    EXE and it installed itself in "C:\MSBNSoftware". Had to run the "C:
    \MSBNSoftware\setup.exe" a few times as I kept getting failures when I
    got to the point where I needed to enter the WEP key. I even tried to
    turn off security on the wireless router (a MS MN-500) and that still
    didn't work. I guess it might have something to do with privileges in
    Vista, so I went into "Network and Sharing Center" and was able to the
    connect to the (at that point) open wireless network. I turned
    security back on for the network and then went back into "Network and
    Sharing" and input the WEP key. Finally, one more reboot and it
    DHCPed and I was on the network.

    Sorry if these directions are confusing, I am a Mac person and
    haven't had to do much Vista troubleshooting. The summary is that it
    does work in Vista (Home Premium).

    how about locating a driver for the MN-510 for Win XP? I now need to go
    wireless again on my new computer, and I have my MN-510 adapter, but I can't
    find the disc, so therefore it will not work and detect my wireless signal.
    Where are the old drivers located on the MS site? I searched everywhere but
    could not find them. Even if it's no longer supported, the old drivers should
    still be made available for people.

    the shove in the right direction was greatly appreciated!!!

    After searching the site for over an hour (and I am no novice at web
    searches) I ran into more deadlinks and run arounds trying to get a person to
    "upgrade to the newest and better" hardware rather than actually sending up a
    flare to find the downloads asked for.

    if we were looking to purchase new software I am sure the advice would be
    great, but after stumbling through dead end after dead end of MS posts that
    seem to hide support for their own previous systems and hardware, a post like
    yours is a breath of fresh air!!!
