Windows 7: Old 3COM wireless PCI adapter driver for Windows 7 x64

Old 3COM wireless PCI adapter driver for Windows 7 x64

Hello!

I just bought a 10 year old wireless PCI adapter card for my old (but still good) Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e computer. I installed the card and Windows 7 (64-bit) detects it as the Ethernet Adapter with a question mark and I am unable to find the right driver to make it work! I formatted my ThinkCentre PC and installed Windows XP (32-bit) and a driver I found on the internet immediatelly recognised the adapter and I had a wireless connection. Then I reinstalled Windows 7 x64 again and the driver didn't work - it's was all just like before.

Anyone has any idea how to make that PCI wireless adapter work in Windows 7 x64? If there's no Win7/64 driver, do you think there could be a certain Windows Update that would solve the problem? Not likely, huh?

Anyway, here's the name of the card and the hardware ID:

Name: 3COM 3CRDAG675 Wireless LAN PCI Adapter

Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_10B7&DEV_0013&SUBSYS_203110B7&REV_01

I would really appreciate your help!

Thank you!
