Windows 7: Wireless Problem

Wireless Problem

At the moment I use a Safecom Wireless dongle to connect to the internet by the wirelesshub. The software i have on the computer is called ZyDAS IEEE b+g Wireless LAN i heard i lost the installatin disc for the driver so i googled and around until eventually i found the driver for it. Althought it does not work on Windows 7 (So i have read and witnessed) by installing the driver it automatically connects to the network within it's range. And i have been told now that ZyDAS no longer exist as Atheros bought them out or something along those lines, And when i upgrade my devices driver it installs an atheros one and the internet speed seems to slow down dramatically and i can no longer play games online as the connection seems to time out or there is way too much lag. If anyone could tell me how to overcome this matter or what is going wrong it would be much appreciated.

Since the company was bought out and there is no support for Win7, it sounds like it's time to get a new wireless NIC!
