Win7 64 bits FR

Buy another Ethernet card. It's cheap.

Personally I got a good one for 15$. Now you can get it for 10$ there: New Intel 8390MT PWLA8390MT 1000 MT PCI Desktop Adapter - eBay (item 250643221285 end time Jul-31-10 11:50:34 PDT)

This may solve your issue because the drivers are well supported in Win7 (the pro category is always better for drivers).
