There's probably a good chance you can't. Windows 7 is still in Beta, and there probably won't be drivers for it for while if there aren't any now that will work.

Hi David R,

My name’s Ron. I’m a member of the Windows Outreach Team and I thought I’d drop in just to try and help you out here.

First, it’s important to remember that Windows 7 is in fact in the Beta stages, which mean it’s being tested by users and hardware vendors alike. This will account for some hardware simply not having updated drivers to work with Windows 7 yet, but rest assured, I’m betting things will be squared away in due time.

You’ve already done the smart thing and tried the older drivers, so we can skip that step. Do you have access to an Ethernet port? That would probably be the easiest fix for the short term if you intend to keep using Windows 7. Also, here’s a quick link to the TP-Link support center, they might be able to help out: http://www.tp-link.com/support/Support.asp.

If this becomes a productivity problem for you, be sure to follow the instructions under “Removing the Beta” on this page: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows...ions.aspx. Be sure to have all your backup files.

Hope this helps a bit.

Cheers,
Ron
Windows Outreach Team
