Windows 7 RC Wireless internet connection problem

windows 7 has always ran great until one day I got on my computer and it randomly said no connections available. iso i restarted. it didn't do anything. i did trouble shoot and said there was a driver issue. so i went into device manager and tried to mess with the driver. nothing. then i plugged in an ethernet cable. that didn't work. cable must of been bad. luckily i dual booted XP. and internet works on that. my wireless card is a realtek 8185. i looked for drivers for it and can't find any that work.

anyone have a guess on what i can do to fix it? upgrading to a newer build is an option if that would fix it. if i would upgrade it would be to build 7600.
