I've been trying to find a resolution for this because I am interested in buying a game that requires DirectX 10 support. I am currently on XP, but have recently purchased Windows 7. Unfortunately for me, my network adapter, a Belkin Wireless G USB stick model F5D7050 v4, doesn't appear to have working drivers for Windows 7.
I can get the device installed, and working, but when I utilize the connection for anything from opening a website to pinging an IP, the computer will immediately go to a blue screen error.
I have tried both x86 and x64 installations of the OS as well as various workarounds others encountering this problem have used with success to no avail on my end.
I would just use a wired connection if I could, but alas, that is not possible to do as my machine is just too far from the router to utilize any of the patch cables I have (the maximum being only 25').
If anyone here has found a solution to this, please tell me. Hopefully, it won't be a method I've tried and hopefully it will work for me
