The router's probably okay as it's indifferent to the Operating System. If the wireless adapter is 6 years old it probably won't have a driver for Win7. Best to save time and swearing and buy a new one.

Also, Windows 7 sees yet another slightly mad Microsoft stab at Networking -- I thought XP was so much better than Win98 but I can't see how Win7 is any advance -- it just seems to have introduced new terminology and confusions.
