|Okay, I don't understand why you would go from a good, working operating system like Windows 7 to go backward in time to one that doesn't work properly and never did......which is to say, Vista.|
You need to go to the manufacturer's website for your wireless adapter and download the Vista drivers if you want it to work with Vista. If there aren't any, you can try the Windows 7 drivers but if they don't work, they don't work and you're screwed.
My suggestion, put Windows 7 back on the computer and throw Vista in the trash where it belongs.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
