Windows 7: No network adapters work!!! (argh)

In that case I'd say that the adaptors aren't compatible or you don't have the correct drivers for those adaptors. Far as I know there is no special requirements for x64 bit Windows 7 and there is no magic button fix for x64 this that I'm aware of. If someone finds that magic button please let me know about it. It could just be a x64 driver problem.

You may need to go to the manufacture's site to get the right drivers. Or perhaps your A/V software or a third party firewall is blocking the connection.

I'm not sure why you felt the need for wireless N adaptors when your router is only wireless G but a router upgrade would really help with the wireless N connections.

We are planning to upgrade the router, secondly would faulty drivers mean it sees the adapter but it cant look for networks and it gets reported for erroring? Both adapter manufactures claimed to have x64 drivers and indeed gave me some to download still no improvement.

It could still be drivers or the router but your router is definately out of date so no reason not to upgrade to a wireless N version. I'm sure everything will work better after that.

If there are many wireless routers in your area it might be worth getting a router that has the 5Ghz and the 2.4Ghz frequency's "dual band". Channel cross over can be a big problem in some area's.

If this problem only occurs on this one machine then resetting winsock or the tcp/ip stack should fix it.

Try running this batch file which will reset winsock, reset the TCP/IP stack and release renew your IP.

You might also have some file corruption or files missing on this particular machine in which case running the sfc /scannow command should fix it.
