    It's not FSD7050 but F5D7050.
    There are several revisions of this card- from 1xxx to 5xxx.
    Win 7 64bit driver is available here for revisions 3xxx, 4xxx and 5xxx.

    If you have revision 1xxx or 2xxx you're out of luck.

    Maybe you need to install them manually- via device manager/update driver and manually navigate to a proper inf file.

    Check it on another machine- specifically one that doesn't work on Win 7.

    So it's some sort of a Windows issue- not hardware one.

    im guessing so because i am running the exact same version on my desktop as i am my laptop and on my desktop when i plug it in it says WLAN 2.0 on my laptop it calls it an unknown device. So i install the drivers on my desktop and it works fine but not on my laptop.
