    It seems that AirLink never made a 64-bit driver for that card, or most of their other cards, so I would say you are screwed.

    I'd just spend the $20 on a new wireless card that you know supports Win7 and 64-bit.

    Or....

    Install a virtual machine with windows xp, install the (old) drivers there and route the connection from the host through the guest system. :toast:

    if you find out the specific texas instruments chip it uses, you can search for a driver that way.

    From a vague memory of researching this in the past, Ti are bad at releasing x64 drivers - you may be screwed.

    Virtual machines don't work that way.

    Ah. I remember something similar from a few years back.. Probably something else, dilemmas seems to come in buckets whenever I'm around those things.
