Windows 7: Windows 7 Edimax U-7318ug issue

Windows 7 Edimax U-7318ug issue

Hi guys, I hope you'll help me out with this.

I have an Edimax U-7318ug USB wireless card which worked fine under Windows Xp, although it overheated a little, but still worked fine. I installed Windows 7 64-bit on my system (and it runs great, I love it ) and installed the drivers for the usb wireless card, which I downloaded from the site of the manufacturer, but if I stress the network a little, like downloading with uTorrent or downloading through Steam, the card just shuts down itself. Otherwise it doesn't do that if I just browsing. The problem with the overheating still exists, but I assume it's not so much of a problem, because it ran great under Windows Xp. Do you have any suggestions (despite that I should buy another device )? Thank you, folks.

I've thought about that but it'll be very difficult. Still, I'm not sure the problem is caused by the overheating, because it worked flawless under Xp. Maybe I really should buy an another device
