Windows 7: Windows 7 64-Bit not supporting wireless card

Windows 7 64-Bit not supporting wireless card

Okay, so I'm using Windows 7 64-Bit. It's flawless, and a bit of a show off, seeming as it already had all of the necessary drivers for all my PC components pre-installed. :P

One issue is the network card. I had a Netgear WPN311 card before, which I couldn't find the right drivers for, so I decided to put my old Belkin F5D7000 into the PCI port.

So.. basically.. I don't have any way of getting online, because I am literally unable to find drivers that suit Windows 7 64-Bit, and at the same time work on this Belkin card.

So this is the one thing I'm confused with.. The PC seems to pick it up as a 'Multimedia' device under device manager. I am completely at a loss what to do with it, and it's becoming very frustrating. If anyone can help me out, tell me what drivers to use for this or the Netgear one if that so happens to be necessary, I would be very, very grateful.

Can you use an ethernet cable just to get the drivers?

I have a memory stick, and a laptop. I'm using this laptop to get the drivers. But I don't know what ones to get is my problem.

Also, I can't use an ethernet cable, it won't stretch to the router upstairs.
