The latest Vista driver can be downloaded from here.

Alfa Network

Could someone please tell me where I can get the latest XP 64-bit driver or share theirs from a new driver cd?

Why don't you copy the driver from your Vista installation? In Vista:
Right-click Computer -> Click Manage. This should open up Computer Management.
Select Device Manager in the left pane. Click Network Adapters, then right-click Realtek RTL8187 and select Properties. Select the Driver tab, then press the Driver Details button. This tells the names and locations of the necessary driver files. Copy them to a location accessible by your 7 installation. Update the network device drivers and when it asks you where, direct it to said location!

I found the real solution for rtl8187 driver in a spanish webpage but it's working even for 64 bits version of windows 7.
Here is the original link Taringa! - Instalar Driver Realtek RTL8187 en Windows 7
but I thought it would be useful too if I added the google translation to english and here it is:
Google Translate
Just download the file and update the driver for your wifi card (rtl8187) in the device manager at control panel.
IT WORKS FOR WINDOWS 7 32bits and 64 bits

Hope this will help many people.
Thanks

Have you tried Gateway Support - Drivers, Software and Firmware Updates ?

If they have drivers for Vista, that should work for Windows 7.

Here's a link to a thread where getting Windows 7 to find the driver for wireless worked - Belkin usb G f5d7051

It is for a Belkin driver, but the same procedure should work. Basically, you need to point Windows 7 at the place the driver's ".inf" file is.

P.S. - Welcome to Seven Forums.
