Windows 7: Belkin F5D7050 Adapter Not Recognized

Belkin F5D7050 Adapter Not Recognized

I seem to have fallen into a problem that lots of users are having in this forum, My Belkin F5D7050 Usb adapter was working fine until a few days ago where it stopped being recognized by Windows 7 Ultimate. I have tried many things recommended here from uninstalling the USB ports to installing Version 3.xx drivers(Mine is a 4.xx) but nothing seems to work. Also the Belkin adapter doesnt even appear in the Device manager in Network adapters but is labeled as Unknown device in the USB section.

During the installation, it refuses to recognize the adapter when it asks for it and I get the same message the USB device isnt recognized. The installation completes without it recognizing the adapter but the Belkin Utitlity doesn't even open up. When I try to manually select the driver from the location, it says that Unknown Device is the best driver already installed for the device

Please help, I am currently posting from another computer on which the adapter works easily. This one is running Windows XP if that makes any difference.

Thanks, glad to be a part of the community. Yes, I have tried that one but when it installs, it doesnt even recognize the adapter when It asks for it. So installing the v.5.xx driver doesnt help.

P.S. Mine is version 4.xx
