Yes I tried running it in compatibility mode, alas without success, and the vista drivers won't installed on my system as it runs Windows 7. I haven't been able to find a windows 7 64 bit driver for this particular wireless device.

Unfortuantely you may need to replace the device. These things happen, especially when using old/outdated hardware.

Sorry.

As he said old hardware is not designed to run with modern 64-bit operating systems but I recommend belkin wireless N adapters

I've had good luck with both Belkin and D link adapters.
