I tried RTL8187.zip 597.9 KB at
DriverGuide
It's for Vista but that worked for my WiBee USB Lan adapter Realtek 8187 on Win7.
You have to choose "..\Windows 2000 XP Vista 64bit Vista XP x64\Windows 2000, XP, Vista" for x86-32bit systems
or
"..\Windows 2000 XP Vista 64bit Vista XP x64\Windows XP x64, Windows Vista x64"

I hope it's useful.
Cheers.

Nothing worked for me.

The drivers from the Spanish website didn't work for me. The drivers from the CNET link got the RTL8187 on my Asus P5B Deluxe WiFi motherboard recognized by Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, but I couldn't get it to connect to my network even though it saw it. I got a new USB wireless adapter, plugged it in, and my system immediately recognized it. Had no trouble connecting to my network. Didn't even need to supply drivers for it. $25 shipped if anyone is curious.

Zonet ZEW2500P

UPDATE: After I got the connection working, windows update found a driver that works for my RTL8187. I unplugged the Zonet adapter and got my RTL8187 to connect to my network. I don't understand why this was so difficult. The Asus website has no Windows 7 64 bit drivers for the wireless card. I tried searching on Yahoo and found nothing. If I was able to connect an ethernet cable from my computer to my router, I could have gotten the updated driver through windows update and not have to buy the Zonet adapter, but my computer is immovable for all practical purposes and I don't have a long enough ethernet cable. Oh well. Now I have to decide what to do with the Zonet adapter. Newegg charges a restocking fee for returns. Maybe I'll just eat that. Is there some other way I could have obtained the driver without having to go through windows update?

What website did you get that from? I imagine they will put the drivers on the same website you got their email from.

A little misinformation though, they originally told me Win7 drivers would be available Dec 21 for the 8187L. Didn't happen. so I bugged them again.

I tried contacting them, and no response. Then after uninstalling in device manager and add new hardware, it worked. Still, windows is a POS I have to use for gaming.
