Yes the router is set up with no fancy pancy. No MAC filtering, no hiding the SSID (I can see it easily in Windows), no broadband limitations, no fixed IP. The only thing there is WEP-key encryption but that works fine for 2 other computers in the house in wireless connection. And it does work fine for 5 minutes on my sons PC with problems.

Are you saying that I should try without the basic security of the WEP-key ?

WEP should be fine the higher level of encryption can be problematic

in Windows 7 the MAC adress needs to start from 12 XX XX XX XX XX (You can put any number after 12) for example 12 A6 57 32 76 D4

you can try Mac Makeup MAC changing software for windows 7

Have you tried unclicking ipv6 in your adapters properties settings? This new protocal has been known to cause problems.

are you getting any prompts about using unsigned drivers as 64 bit windows needs digitally signed drivers if it prompts you about that select install anyway

Hi

I have a similar problem like you do (brand new computer, Win7 64bit, realtek 8185 on wifi pci card). The main problem is there are not proper win7 64bit drivers for Realtek 8185. The Realtek Site offers Win7 UI&driver download, which is basicly Vista 64bit driver. With that driver I have serious trouble with signal (30-40%) and completely bad connection.

Solution is simple: uninstall previous Realtek Utility&Driver from Control Panel and install XP 64bit driver. I have now 80-100% signal and I'm finally able to load web pages in decent time.

Recommended way of installation: Find your Realtek 8185 in windows Device Manager. Right click and select Update device driver. In opened window select Search in computer (second option). Then Select from list and there click on button labelled "From disk". There you select path to your unrared WinX64 folder. And then just confirm everything. I'm not using English language in Windows, so you have to find out yourself as I do not know exact names of the options.

It has some drawbacks still; sometimes it drops off the connection and sometimes is awfully slow too. Despite this - better than nothing. Hopefully someone releases working Win7 drivers soon (I've heard it's also caused in combination with WEP, but I haven't had a chance to prove that yet).
