Drivers 64bit for WMP54GR

I have been searching around the web, and cannot find any 64 bit drivers for my wireless card.
However i went over to the RALINK site, and there are vista 64 bit drivers for linksys cards.
Anyone know if there are any 64 bit drivers for a WMP54GR ? Im trying to install windows 7 64bit. Any of the ralink drivers work for this card.

It seems that WMP54GR adapter has no 64bit driver for Windows 7 yet, so that means it can't work with Windows 7.

When I try to install Sun Open Office 3 in my computer running Windows 7 RC build 7100 64 bit,after restart the computer freezes.Anyone has the same problem?Do it work for you?

I have open office installed and running just fine on win 7 RC1 7100 32bit version. It works fine

I hear 32-bit only, as I could install but not run in 64-bit windows 7,the same build. So the problem is either me, or my ME mark VII box.

I'll tackle it later when I have another spare hard drive to test.

Ethernet Connection Drop issue

I am having trouble when it's actually ethernet cable...my card is realtec RTL8139\810x,i'm connected via university using telnet.the internet is falling every 5-20 minutes...
My connection drops on average about 15mins, with torrent, skype, and msn running. it's really annoying to have to troubleshoot every 15-20mins!!.. anyone found a solution to this??

What ethernet card you have, what router model, firmware and the rest of the obvious network information and anything else pertinent about this issue, the more detail the better

mod may want to merge this thread with about 2 others, just from today alone, and probably a few more could be found just from the past week. Am wondering if this is really a big issue or is it all user/system/network specific.

Ableton Live Works fine

Ableton Live is music/DJ production use for Mac OS and Windows. .I'm not sure how many people use this software.

Now I think that it's much difficult to find drivers for windows 7,since official Windows 7 hasn't been released.So you will find hardly to download Windows 7 drivers for Dell computer via Dell site.
MY firend joysu had to used Dell Inspiron 1525 drivers for running Windows 7 64-bit.It is very useful post on the TechNet forums
His dell computer work just fine.Also there are a little problems,such as driver for video don't be accepted.
