I have installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my laptop and not that the existing drivers in the WDNA3200 do not appear to work with Windows 8 at present.
With the release of Windows 8 due later this year, are VM taking steps to make sure that they will have working drivers available by the time of it's release?

Thanks for the advice - unfortunately it didn't work for me, however I did manage to get the adapter working. )
These are the steps I took.
1. Plug in adapter and install VM software.
2. Went into device manager and found that adapter had not loaded drivers.
3. Clicked update drivers. Then clicked Browse my computer for driver software
4. Clicked Let me pick from a list of Device Drivers on this computer - selected Network Devices and clicked Have disk
5. Browsed to the C:\Programfiles(x86)\NETGEAR\WDNA3200\Driver\WIN764 Folder and selected netarthrx.inf and pressed ok
6. Selected the Adapter in the next window - easy - it was the only one listed - and let Windows install the drivers.

What like IPV6 - When they get round to it?

Yes, because that is what both the developer preview and consumer preview are there to do, allow software and hardware companies to see how the OS works and update software and hardware as appropriate
Download the installer for the WNDA3100 from the Netgear site and run it (I just used the 1.2 version below), it EITHER has a driver for the 3200 included, or it recognises the drivers off the USB stick
Whichever, it worked for me and I've got W8 running fine with my WNDA3200

If you choose to be at the cutting edge, expect to bleed!

Now there's a sharp witted statement!!
Just to verify that you have now gotten the adapter working with Windows 8?
