I recently built a Windows 7 64-bit system and am unable to use my 802.11n USB wireless adapter. I was able to install and use an old G adapter, but my data transfer rate between computers and my external world book is extremely poor.

I have a NETGEAR WNR834M-100NAR IEEE802.11n router, and am looking for a Windows 7 compatible wireless setup. I would prefer to install an internal card, rather than use the external USB stick.

I am also open to getting a new router, as long as it all works with Windows 7 64. Any suggestions?

Thanks, JessicaD. I actually got this working on Windows 7 last night (using a new version of Netgear's adapter software, exiting out of the software prior to plugging in the device, and letting Windows 7 manage the install of the actual driver).

I'll bookmark and check out the Windows 7 support forums on TechNet. Thanks!

Spoke too soon... I experienced several random disconnects last night. I also get consistent disconnects when I sign into World of Warcraft. I'm not sure if it's Windows, my Netgear products, or WoW at this point. Will keep researching... :\
