the hardware MUST WORK on the HOST machine. If the USB WiFi device fails on the Windows 7 X-64 host machine then your VM won't have Internet connectivity.
The HOST USB driver must be active before you can use the USB device on your VM.
Another example I have a Canon 1240 scanner which won't work on Windows 7 but it Will work on an XP VM since the Virtual USB driver on the host just "passes this through" to the VM.
A Network device is slightly different as you MUST have a physically working Network device on the host before you can activate the "Virtual Network" device on the VM.
So I'm afraid you will either have to get a new Windows 7 X-64 compatable WiFi device or install Windows 7 X-86.
