Windows 7: Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter Driver Problems

Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter Driver Problems

Hi guys I am Andrew and I recently installed the Beta Release of Windows 7 well the issue I am having is that when ever I run the CD it says that it is not compatible, well I am using an F5D7050 adapter and a 1444 router. So is there anyway to bypass it to make it think it is Vista? It is compatible with Vista, Xp, and previous versions. Also after upgrading is there a way to downgrade back to XP which is what I am running, Windows XP Pro SP3.

Thanks!
Andrew.

Will that absolutely work? Also how would you downgrade back to XP if you don't mind answering that?

It *should* work - whether it will absolutely or not I cannot answer as I am not using Belkin *anything* in my house.

As for 'downgrading' - ummm, I am assuming that you did *not* upgrade to Windows 7, that you in fact have a new install of Windows 7 sitting next to XP on a different partition, right?

No I installed it and then re installed XP I should create it on a new partion so I don't have to do that I just am not sure how to!

Making partitions in Windows 7 is easy - in XP it is pretty easy too, the process is pretty much the same.

Are you running XP right now or Windows 7?

Either way, take a look at this: Disk Management - Delete and Extend - Vista Forums (this is a tutorial at out sister site, Vistax64.com)

If you are running XP and want to do a clean install of Windows 7 on its own partition, see this: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ws-7-beta.html

I am running XP now. So in that tutorial does the "extend" section during installation create a new partition?

No - you'll need to Use the second tutorial I posted to use the Windows 7 installation disk to shrink your XP partition and then install Windows 7 in the free space that is created.

Windows 7 provides a generic Wireless USB LAN driver.

Select "Locate and install a driver manually" from the "Update Driver" button from the Driver Properties in Device Manager

This worked for my Linksys USB wireless Adapter in Windows 7 64bit.
