    Have you tried the Vista drivers?  The kernel for Vista and Windows 7 are pretty much the same so the Vista drivers should work just fine.

    If the Vista driver don't work, Win7 compatible Gigabit NIC's aren't very expensive.

    Use Gigabit Ethernet only if you have a fileserver (LAN).
    For internet its useless....(also you might have IP issues with these adapters).
    You can plug in 2 NIC's if you want...
