Please Help!!!!

New to the forum but not a noob to computers. Gateway 6752 notebook and just upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit. All drivers automatically found except the wireless driver. Its a Marvell TOPDOG 802.11n and the Gateway website only offers drivers up until Vista. Lan works fine, but wireless cannot find any networks. In device manager it shows exclamation point next to network icon. I have searched for hours but can't find the driver for the wireless. Is there any way to get my wireless card to work short of downgrading back to Vista. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you need to reinstall the Vista driver, download the installer file from Gateway's website, and save it to your desktop. Now right click the file, click properties, and click the "compatibility" tab. Select the check box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and click the drop down menu. Select "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" and click ok. Now run the installer.

On the other hand, you should fill out your system specs to the best of your knowledge to give the more advanced users here an idea of what you're looking for. Hope I helped though!
