Windows 7: Error Code 43 Belkin Wireless Adapter

Error Code 43 Belkin Wireless Adapter

Hello all,

I bought a Belkin N 600 wireless USB adapter about two weeks ago, and yesterday it stopped working. I received a pop-up message saying the device had malfunctioned, and in the device manager it displayed error code 43. The device showed up as "unknown device" under the USB tab, rather than under the network adapters tab.

This is what I have already tried:
Reinstalled the driver from the CD
Reinstalled the driver from Belkin's website
Reinstalled the USB drivers
Restored my system to before I initially installed the driver
Ran troubleshooter
Spent an hour on the phone with Belkin tech support
Became frustrated

Any help would be very much apppreciated.

Thank you!

Don't know much about it myself, but this article: - How to Fix Code 43 Error

Seems to indicate that it is most likely a driver problem, as your previous actions agree with.

The only item in the short list of actions suggested that I don't see in your post, is the one about making it the default device. If that doesn't solve the problem, I would return the device and find one that does work.
