hi byron,
Yes, thats where i got the drivers. Now I am managing to also install them from the cd-rom... but every time i try and reboot it goes back to the 'application failed to initialize...etc' again! the application box is called 'RtWLan.exe'
I think those drivers are installed now, but just wont initialize.. i give up...

A short while ago, i thought i had sussed it out. it all seem to go smoothly - even saying it could see networks - so i chose the correct one.. and entered all the correct SSID and WPA key etc.. but then just said 'couldnt connect to the network.. will keep trying..'

ahhh so when you click on the 'Netis' icon short cutty thing, on the desk top, it gives the same error message 'failed to initialize...(0xc0150002).. '

What's important is that the adapter show up in Device Manager. Hold down the Windows logo keyu (just to the left of the Alt key and press R. In the Run box type: devmgmt.msc and click OK.

In the Device Manager window expand the entry for Network Adapters. You should see the adapter listed.

Right-click on it an select Properties. In the Status windows it should say "this device is working properly"

If that is the situation you should be able to see and connect to your wireless network.

Once the driver is installed and the adapter working properly there's no need to click on any icon or shortcut.
