Compatible wireless adapter

I got windows seven about a week ago and i have yet to find a compadible wireless adapter.

Are there any windows seven compadible wireless adapters on the market? If so are there any pci express wireless adapter cards that are compadible with windows seven?

It's safe to assume, matter of fact extremely safe to say that if you run to a reputable shops now and buy one brand new for your machine and chipset, it'll work.

How about a compatible PCI adapter? I just purchased a D-Link DGE 530T tonight. It is listed as W-7 compatible. It did not work and there is no driver available according to the phone help.

PS I am trying to work around random disconnections with Nvidia nForce Network adapter- doesn't seem to be a W-7 64 driver there either. Any help would be appreciated before I chuck W-7 to go back to XP-64

You could try a Vista Driver if available. Many Vista Drivers are Windows 7 compatible.

How about a pci express adapter?
The only one i can find online is the D-Link Xtreme N™ PCI Express (PCIe) Desktop Adapter, which is only compatible with windows vista 32-bit. I have a Gateway FX6801-01 and it only has pci express ports because it's quite new.

Hi Jamand,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm running 64 bit W-7 and both PCIe slots are taken by multiple monitor cards. (I had to upgrade those also because no drivers were available for the matrox chip cards i had.)
