I'm just trying to make this easier on you and I do realize that purchasing new hardware is a pain but in this case it's the easiest way to solve the problem. I can check the comptablity list for your router but if it doesn't have a specific firmware update just for Windows 7 it's unlikely to work properly for you.

i used to have XP it worked, then i went to windows 7 it stopped working, now i reinstalled xp again and it didn't work

Changed Op systems instead of just replacing the router? Well I tried anyway LOL, good luck getting XP to work again.

Compatibility List

Compatibility list are not gospel that just means that those items have been tested and do work if an item has not been tested to make it on the list that does not mean it won't work.
