Have you checked on Motorola's site for Windows 7 drivers (they have Vista ones that should work if not)?

Also why not use the ethernet connection?

Hello Beavis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I have the SB5101 currently and the Vista drivers for a USB connection will work for it in Windows 7. However, I would agree with Stormy, if you are able to, you would be much better off using the ethernet connection instead for better performance and to not have to worry about drivers at all for the modem.

Hope this helps,

Hello Badkarma,

Did you install your LAN network drivers for your ethernet port on the motherboard? Luckily you have the same motherboard I do. You can download and installed the Realtek 7.009 drivers for Windows 7 (Win7 32/64 Auto Installation Program) below.

Realtek

Hope this helps,
