Windows 7: Belkin F5D8051 Windows 7

Belkin F5D8051 Windows 7

Hello, I've searched all over and to no help. I was running Windows 7 for the past few months and had my Belkin N1 USB Adapter (Model F5D8051) working fine.

I had to restore my computer today, and now I cannot find the drivers anywhere online and nothing is working. I've read everywhere that the F5D8051 is not compatible with Windows 7 x64 , but I know it is since I have been using it before.

If anyone can give me some input or point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

SOULTION!:
Wireless N adapters never seem to work with Windows 7 x64. I have now, however gotten my F5D8051 to work so I thought I’d post a quick guide.
1. Download the drivers from here for the Ralink chipset
2. Install the package
3. Update the driver for your Belkin N1 adapter to the driver (IF THIS DOESN'T WORK PLEASE GOOGLE BELKIN N1 BLOGITTECH)
4. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers…’
5. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
6. Select ‘Ralink Technology, Corp.’ (if there are two, pick the second)
7. Select ’802.11n USB Wireless Card’.
8. Install the driver and watch your network stop dropping out!!!
Good luck! When in doubt; get the chipset manufacturers driver!
