You might try re installing the driver.

Click Here and click the model of your laptop. Select your OS, then click Driver - Network and download the wireless driver. Restart your computer and see if you still have the same issue.

That is very weird. I am sure that if it was an issue with Win7, the wireless would not work at all. The only very unlikely thing that I can think of is if the wireless card isn't getting enough power. Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I'll do some looking around for you.
