How to get the wireless device of an Amilo Li 2727 working with Windows 7 or 8 ?

For the ones who stumble across the same problem I have describe how to solve it below:

  1. Download the Windows XP Drivers For Amilo Li 2727 here (download)
  2. Extract the contents of the compressed file
  3. Open ‘Control Panel’, click on ‘System’ and choose ‘Device Manager’
  4. Then open the ‘Action’ menu item and click on ‘Add legacy hardware’
  5. Click Next 3 times and pick ‘Network Adapters’
  6. Choose ‘Have disk’ and Navigate into the ’04 WLAN’ directory
  7. Select ‘Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter’
  8. Install the FSC Launchmanager from the ’05 FSC_LaunchManager’ directory by executing the setup.exe
  9. Reboot

Once you have rebooted you should have a working wireless device on your laptop and shouldn’t have any more problems with it afterwords. To active the wireless device, you need to press the Fn+F1 button combination and choose WLAN. I can confirm this driver works on Windows 7 & 8.
