There are no drivers available for windows 7. You can try to go on the wireless card manufacturer web page to find some driver. Or try to install Vista driver sometimes it works.

Otherwise you'll have to keep going with your cable unless you downgrade windows to vista.

Can you find out what wireless chip is in your laptop?


If its an Intel chip, then try Intel's website;


Is the N500 similar to the G530? You can try the drivers;


Also the wireless switch may be off.  On your model you may need to press Fn-F5
