Belkin F5D8053N Wireless Adaptor Problem

Any ideas how I can get this working in Windows 7 64bit final retail version? (it worked fine in the 32bit release candidate) Windows can't find any drivers for it and the latest ones on Belkins website don't work

Welcome to SevenForums chrislis
From looking at Belkin support page no drivers for x64 are yet available for your adapter. However they indicate that they might be available in the future. You may be able to find a work around but I have not been able to locate one for you. Good luck to you with this problem. I hope that you stay with us here at SF.

Here's a link to a similar thread -

Belkin usb G f5d7051

Basically, you point Windows 7 at the drivers that came with the device's CD once you have installed them onto your drive.

thanks guys, i've decided to install the 32bit OS for now until Belkin get their act together as for some reason the drivers on the CD work with the 32 bit version of Windows 7!

found a solution which i just did and it works!!

To start, you need to uninstall anything you tried to install for this Belkin Adapter. If you run the setup with the driver already on your computer it should force you to uninstall it before you continue with the steps below. Once you have it uninstalled follow these steps:

If you have the CD that came with the router go to Computer --> Right Click on CD --> Click Open. Find the setup file and right click on it, then click Troubleshoot Compatibility. Go through the steps basically saying the program does not work now but it used to work in Windows Vista (I just selected the first Vista option, not Service Pack 1 or 2).

Then click run this program with these settings (or whatever the specific options is) and it should work.

If you don't have the CD, go to Belkin : Support : F5D8055 Wireless N+ USB Adapter - Driver and download the driver you need. Locate the file and right click on it, then click Troubleshoot Compatibility. Go through the steps basically saying the program does not work now but it used to work in Windows Vista.

Good luck

Yes thanks a million - I have just managed to get a Belkin 8053 working with windows 7 setting the compatability mode to Vista. Otherwise I couldnt use the internet and the new computer was completely pointless.
