Windows 7: Belkin F5U273 - 64 bit driver

Belkin F5U273 - 64 bit driver

Here is a potentially great product that (if all claims are true) would solve my home office issues, yet it is not officially supported in a 64-bit environment as Belkin does not officially have a 64-bit driver.

Can anyone suggest a 'gray market' 64-bit driver for the Belkin F5U273?

Or do I have no other option than to 'step down' my operating system to the 32-bit environment (Dell Studio 1747)?

Thanks, in advance...

What are you saying, that the 32-bit Vista drivers don't work on your 64-bit machine?

It's highly unlikely that you will ever find a new driver for this apparently discontinued product. I'd ditch it before trying to downgrade your Dell to a 32-bit OS; I'm not even certain that in so doing your Belkin would work anyway.

Thanks for the advice and sage comment, maxseven.

I really don't want to step my 64-bit OS to a 32-bit OS.

I was just hoping that someone other there had a 64-bit driver that miraculously worked with this product...or a suggestion on a product with similar features that works in a 64-bit environment.

I would doubt that is even possible with the Dell i.e. it may be snotty/picky about the drivers it needs as well...

I'm not a big fan of them, but there are quite a few universal docks out there that would do the job. I hate telling ou to spend money, but that's what I'd do, or give up on the dock concept...unless your laptop has an option for a real docking station.
