i had asked same question in yahoo answer.. some one sent me link to a page which had the driver realtek for windows 7..
and it installed also...
but then just before instalation completed.. i got BSOD(Blue screen of Death)
when i tried installing it on vista.. thn also i got BSOD..
it was some other usb wifi manufacturer companies site.. not of alfa.. but it did looked promising..
dont know why the bsod

if u cud upload ur driver??
i just managed to connect my win 7 thru lan cable.. it was showing 2 days left for activation!!..
i knew that i wudnt face prob thru lan.. cause my other pc is always running thru lan.. but i wanted a solution of wifi for my pc.. which is quite far...

strangely i didnt get any message to update my win7 when i connected... (
was hoping i wud get some drivers..
even my virtual drive and 3 usb's..including mms reader didnt show up..
driver prob for win7 , might just kill the os!

hmm.. what develope gave is a 32 bit driver that also works for 64 bit win7.. so u shudnt have any prob.. maybe ur not doing it proper.. do u know how to install that driver??

first extract it to a folder in desktop..
whn u click on it u shud have 3 small files in it.. just open to make sure..
next right click on my computer , select properties and thn select device manager on the left hand side..
that shud show u a list of all hardwares detected by ur pc..
does it show 2 realtek network cards or one?
usually it shows 2.. one is the ethernet lan, another shud be ur wifi..
HOra!! first question.. what type of wifi hardware are u using??!!
okay back to the installation.. if u find the realtek with yellow question..thn thats a good sign.. meaning that ur pc detects the hardware but cannot understand it, (no drivers)
click on network adapters , right click on wifi one.. and thn click on update my driver..
choose update my driver MANUALLY.. and simply choose the FOLDER in which all three files were extracted that were in ur desktop..
that shud do the trick..
i really hope this works.. the screen shot u send is from the cd right?!! it doesnt come whn u do this way..
i am not a pro.. i just got myself helped by develope.. maybe he can help u out.. try this and thn if it doesnt work.. ask him
there is another site i know that gives wifi driver for win7.. but its for another type of hardware.. it also has a realtek 8187. but slightly diff version.. that didnt work for me.. but few ppl said it worked for thm.. i dont remember.. but if this method fails for u. i wl search again next week whn i get the time..

chikao chikao.. tat is understandable.. there is no hurry to reply!! as a matter of fact once u ask.. members here have the responsibility to reply asap..

okay one last thing is needed from ur side.. since this message means that this driver may be accepted by ur system.. but since ur system is already registered to one it feels is best.. U TRY BY FIRST REMOVING THAT DRIVER.. RIGHT CLICK ON IT AND SELECT REMOVE OR DELETE driver.. i think uninstall is written... THN UP ON TOP THERE WL BE OPTION TO SCAN FOR HARDWARE changes.. do that.. and again the system wl detect ur realtek hardware and thn say that not proper driver found.. thn do that method which i asked u to do in previous post.. since no driver is installed.. ur pc shud accept the driver this time..
u didnt mention what type of hardware u have..
if i remember correctly i too had same errors.. whn i uninstalled the driver existing and thn installed the given driver by location, my prob solved.. so hope urs wl too..

hello slimshady can you show us your hardware ids?
open up the device manager and then go to your Wifi adapter..
open the details tab
there click on the hardware id's and post it up here...
once thats finished please unnistall the driver click on the checkbox saying "delete driver software for this device" and then reboot...
there follow what the what the rest have told you and that should bring up and running...
