DirectX 11 has nothing to do with you having an older card. Get the lastest drivers from nV site for Windows 7 and that part should be fine. Windows 7 can work very well with older cards.

This wireless card is only supported in newer kernels. Debian stable's kernel is too old so that is why no interface shows up.
