      Never heard of 'em before, but they are now dead. Thanks.

        I have a w7 profession 64 bit and decided to reload w7. After doing so I no longer have any wifi reception. the wifi worked in safe mode before the reload.. Don't find any real help online so hoping here will have a solution. After the reload I went to the networking page and followed some online advice that said change the adapter, however the page where that is supposed to be is blank. Should I just give up and go to w 10 (shudder) or buy a new unit? Looking for the cheapest route, i do have everything backed up. Tia

          The problem with 64-bit is that you MUST have 64-bit drivers for any hardware you're using. I suspect that Win7-64 lacks the drivers for your WiFi device. Check the manufacturer's site and see if they have any drivers for it.

            Thanks Russell, I think I had the 64 bit w7 before and everything worked. I'm now thinking of doing a wipe, and another w7 install?

              Before going the brute force route, maybe you could go to the Device Manager and uninstall your wireless adapter (under Network Adapters) and then let Windows automatically re-install it. It can't hurt.

                You can try what Mark suggested. If your current install doesn't have the driver, a wipe and re-install isn't likely to make it appear.

                Keep in mind that Win7/64 was pretty unusual. I'm not sure as I ever saw one. Only with Win10 has 64-bit become the norm.

                  When I tried to look for the wireless adapter it only showed a blank page. Just tried to load w7 32 bit and it said my machine needs only 64 bit? I'm going to do a wipe and install the win7 64 bit.

                    I had Win7/64 on my desktop, when purchased in 2010 and continued until Win10 was installed a couple of years ago.

                      This machine I'm on was originally a Win 7/64 and updated to Win 10/64 with no issues. My wireless router is a Netgear R7000 and it came over to Win10/64 with no problems.

                      Have you gone out to your router manufacturer and downloaded a driver from them? Also since you are going to reload the Win7, why not go to Win10?

                        Sounds like it found the 32-bit driver, but since you OS is 64-bit, it can't use it.

                        You can try a wipe and reload, but I think you're going to have to do one of the following:
                        - Download a 64-bit driver for your wireless
                        - Install a different wireless adapter
                        - Wipe and install 32-bit.

                        It's possible Win10/64 might have a driver. Maybe.

                          I still have Win7/64 on one computer. It is one chipset to early to be supported by Win10.
