i cudnt register my win 7 cause i cudnt get my pc connected to the net ..


P.S: installed win 7 for my old p4 cheap third class pc.. which used to crash in xp itself due to low ram etc etc...
win 7 works not just great but excellent.. EVEN WITH BACKGROUND IMAGES CHANGING AND 7 GADGETS!!! ALL IN 1 GB RAM.. KUDOS TO WIN 7

Okay so i went to windows 7 update catalogue.. i think i got the correct driver ..lol
goes like this.. Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - Network - Trust USB WiFi Adapter
hope this works for my device..
now my question.. its not an exe file.. how shud i install it.???
windows 7 doesnt even detect my usb wifi.. so i cant choose select driver from so and so.. how do i do it manually???

i just want the driver for win7 to have it run.. cause the cd i got with my alfa wifi usb only has driver for win 95/xp/vista.. not win 7

You probably wont find one yet. Thats why I gave you info about Vista drivers. Many Vista drivers work for Win 7.

This case you can manual update driver by use driver vista from driver cd Alfa.

this location for driver on cd
E:\USB adapter\RTL8187_Vista_6.1281_WHQL_installshield\RTL8187_Vista_6.1281_WHQL_installshield\VistaX86

Now. I use Alfa in windows7.

Nope.. it simply says.. Not a valid installation file..
cause my alfa cd is old.. maybe urs is new.. but still i cudnt get it from their website..

i had asked same question in yahoo answer.. some one sent me link to a page which had the driver realtek for windows 7..
and it installed also...
but then just before instalation completed.. i got BSOD(Blue screen of Death)
when i tried installing it on vista.. thn also i got BSOD..
it was some other usb wifi manufacturer companies site.. not of alfa.. but it did looked promising..
dont know why the bsod


if u cud upload ur driver??
i just managed to connect my win 7 thru lan cable.. it was showing 2 days left for activation!!..
i knew that i wudnt face prob thru lan.. cause my other pc is always running thru lan.. but i wanted a solution of wifi for my pc.. which is quite far...

strangely i didnt get any message to update my win7 when i connected... (
was hoping i wud get some drivers..
even my virtual drive and 3 usb's..including mms reader didnt show up..
driver prob for win7 , might just kill the os!
