Wireless card on windows 7

Hey guys, I have no ethernet card in my PC but I have a wireless card: Rosewill RNX-G300LX IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Wireless Card Up to 54Mbps Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, 802.1x, WPA, WPA2, AES, TKIP ... - Retail

I just instaled Windows 7, but for some reason I can't connect to the internet and I can't find an icon for my card anywhere. Any ideas?

  1. I would suggest you to do a compatibility check, since windows 7 is quite restrict with software and hardware. A lot of software and hardware has compatibility problems with it...


  2. hey rosewill worked like a charm man thank you so much. by the way, does anyone know a good program that will automatically manage all my updates for me? like my graphics card, sound card, RAM, etc.
  3. Hello iahwhite,

    Have you checked compatibility?
    Just an FYI for you.

    It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
    Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
    There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".

    There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:

    In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!

    As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.

    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.

    Thanks again,
