Windows 7: Windows 7 and Wireless

Windows 7 and Wireless

I have a network card WPN511 (NetGear) and my rounter is a belkin pre-n mimo. They both worked when Windows 7 was in beta I used it for several months, well I decided to get retail version of the OS and the wireless will not work, I have made sure that the wireless card is compatabile. The card is automatically installed when windows is installed. It will either not connect at all or will connect, but be so slow that it'll just grind to a holt. Also, Vista it works fine, meaning i'm obviously in range. I have seen many soloutions but none of them have worked for me.

Thanks Adam

Look for drivers from NetGear's site for your wireless card. Also try using NetGear's wireless client. I am thinking its more of a driver issue then the client however because W7 usually does a nice job managing wireless.
