Hi, welcome to the forums

Try downloading from Here and select the B version. You'll find that it has support for Windows 7.

THANKS alot!
just wondering, i had to download this on my laptop as i obviously do not have internet connection on my stationary, and therefore i don't have winrar on my stationary either, can i just move everything (winrar and the update) to my stationary from my laptop using a USB?

USB is 1 quick option. Connecting to the router via an Ethernet Cable is easier if the router is close enough.

that's my problem, because at first it stod only Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller under network adapters. and then after searching around it seemed to me as if that was the device built inside my computer, my network card. and then i found this RTL8187_wireless under unknown device along with another device simply called "unknown device"..... then i right-clicked on RTL8187 > and then i clicked update drivers and i had to search manually for drivers as i had no internet. i did so and chose the driver i had downloaded on my laptop and transferred to my stationary it did not work.. so i tried again but this time i pressed : let me pick from a list of devices instead. and only found the SE type on the list under network adapters. so i clicked on it and got a update driver, saying it was not recommended because windows cannot verify that it is compatible with my hardwar. i clicked yes and got a bluescreen. then i restarted my pc and now the SE type was shown under the device manager>network adapters page. and when i troubleshoot my internet connection now it says that "Realtek RTL8187SE 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN PCIE network has a driver problem" but im not sure if that is my type as it only appeared after i had clicked on it... i think it is that named "unknown device" under the unknown device page, i don't think windows can identify my inernet receiver
