Windows 7: Realtek RTL8187 driver

There already is a driver for the RTL8187

I've been using my Realtek adapter for months now. What I did was buy the zonet wireless adapter from newegg which worked immediately upon first plug-in and Windows 7 automatically found the driver for the Realtek built-in card. Then I just put the Zonet away in case I needed it in the future. I probably wouldn't have even have had to do that if I could've gotten my computer close enough to a router/switch/hub so that I could plug my motherboard directly into it (I had windows 7 drivers for the motherboard's built-in ethernet).

Newegg.com - Zonet ZEW2500P IEEE 802.11b/g MINI USB / USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, WPA - Wireless Adapters

I don't know if it would work or not, but you could download the driver from the Asus website to see if your computer will take it. Search for motherboards, socket 775, P5B Deluxe WiFi. Choose Windows 7 and download the wireless card driver.

If anyone reads this and is aware of an updated driver for the Realtek RTL8187_wireless internal Internet adapter PLEASE email me at: gayleannherron@gmail.com I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

See my previous posts on this thread. I am currently using the RTL8187L driver on my Win 7 64bit. Works great. Did not use the AP portion. Just the driver is all you need, let windows do the rest. Download from RealTek direct website.

You can get the RTL8187L driver from the Realtek website... be sure to look for the RTL8187L driver. Although, after I downloaded and installed it, I still couldn't get the wireless connection to work until I went through the "Troubleshoot problems" process (Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center) and selected "Network Adapter" for the trouble shoot. The process found some sort of problem and reset some driver settings and then everything worked. Only problem I have now is that the fix from the trouble shoot process is sometimes lost during a shut down and reboot, and I have to go through the trouble shoot process again.

GayleAnnwhatever: just an FYI. Unless you paid "your computer guy" a few hundred dollars, and legally purchased Windows 7, then he just gave you an illegal, pirated copy.. just sayin, yaknow?
