Windows 7: Just installed Windows 7 and no Internet

Not sure if this information will help, but before I was able to enter a WEP User and Password. There was also this little green box that showed if my internet was working or not, red when it wasn't. It was something to do with Belkin.

Edit: I checked a third computer in the house and the network adapter for that one is

"D-Link Airplus DWL-G520 Wirless PCI adapter (rev.B)"

EDIT: Okay, I quickly reformatted back to XP and checked my network adapter. It's a Belkin Wireless 54Mbps Desktop Adapter. I ran Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta and it said that this device wouldn't be compatible with Windows 7. Does this mean I have no chance of running internet on a Windows 7 OS?

Belkin Wireless 54Mbps Desktop Adapter

This is my network adapter for Windows XP. However, when I run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta it says that it would not be compatible with windows 7 and I can't seem to find a driver for it. Is there even a driver for this that works with Windows 7?

Welcome Kiroshin,

Can you be a bit more specific?

Belkin, but what model?

Would the model be under Network Adapters in device managers?

Your router is not your network card. Two different things.

The router is both wired and wireless.

The network adapter is the wireless card in your computer.
We need to know which model it is, for us to be able to help you.
