Windows 7: Driver for Linksys and Belkin Wireless Adapter?

Driver for Linksys and Belkin Wireless Adapter?

OK. I believed the hype, waited to buy a new computer until 7 came out. Been doing this since before there even WAS Windows, and it does it to me every time. Everything was supposed to work that worked with Vista, which was supposed to run everything that ran on XP, etc. - I got the computer, a Compaq desktop, got a Linksys wireless adapter to go with it. Wouldn't install. Wouldn't even recognize the dang thing was plugged in. Called Linksys, talked to some woman in Indonesia who told me there was no driver for W7 yet. Went back to BestBuy where I got the adapter, thinking they could help. Seems their geeks aren't any geekier than I am. Got a refund, bought a Belkin G family. At least the computer recognized that the Belkin is plugged in, and it knows there is a signal, but it refuses to connect. That's weird. Good signal, knows it is a Motorola adapter, but will NOT connect! Re-installed it in compatibility mode. It just laughs at me. Seriously, can I go back to DOS? Barring that, is there anything else I can do besides wait for an adapter to ship with a driver that works on 7?

I was having issues also with Belkin's crap on my wife's pc. I could get it to work if I had the pc wired to ethernet and then installed the software. It would fail to load and then pop up a window asking to run with recommended settings. It wouldn't do this if the ethernet was unplugged. It would run in compatability mode XP and then it would work. As soon as the pc booted and I connected to a wireless network it would BSOD me within a minute or two like clockwork. I finally found a wireless adapter that does work with W7 and it works like a charm.

This is where I bought it. There is a review that says it doesn't work in W7.
