Windows 7: Using unsigned drivers/old hardware

Windows 7
Using unsigned drivers/old hardware

I have a few problems. Is there a way to disable Windows 7 64 from enforcing drivers to be signed? I use older things that work fine but have no signature. Freeware too. My Actiontec GT701 modem only has drivers up to XP. That's what I used it on before and what I HAVE to still use now since I can't install in on Windows 7.

Any suggestions?

Can you not use the ethernet connection instead of the USB?

If so then there is no need for a driver.
