    Friends: I just upgraded my Gateway MT6705 laptop from Windows Vista to Windows 7 because of no sound. Now I have sound but cannot connect wirelessly to my router. I cannot find the Windows 7 driver for Realtek RTL8187 wireless network adapter. I tried the Vista driver but it will not accept it. Any solution to this? Thank you.

    The Realtek site lists 3 versions of the RTL8187:

    RTL8187B

    RTL8187L

    RTL8187SE

    See if you can find your driver here. All 3 models support Windows XP/Vista/7.

    flavallee: Thanks a lot for your response. I downloaded the 8187L version and it worked like a charm. Thanks again. Cheers!
