I just wanna add that with help i got mine working:

0) Make sure you have uninstalled any existing drivers or software you have installed for this specific Belkin adapter. As there is no Windows 7 driver from Belkin yet at the time of writing, this shouldn't be a problem.

1) Visit the Ralink website:

Ralink corp. | Home

Head to the "Software" page, and on the Windows page download the "USB (RT2870 /RT2770 /RT307X /RT2070 /RT3572)" driver (currently dated 09/25/2009, the filename is "IS_AP_STA_RT2870_D-1.4.7.0_VA-2.3.7.0_W7-3.0.7.0_RU-3.1.3.0_AU-3.0.4.0_092509_1.5.5.0WP_Free.exe"). This driver package includes drivers for Windows 2000, XP 32 & 64-bit, Vista 32 & 64-bit and Windows 7 32 & 64-bit.

2) Right-click the installation file and set the Compatibility Mode to "Windows XP SP2". This step is required, as the Windows 7 drivers do not contain the "PSP Xlink Mode" option in the Advanced settings of your network adapter. The drivers installed when the installer is in compatibility mode still function properly under Windows 7 64-bit.

3) Run the installer (now set for XP SP2 compatibility).

- Click the "I accept the terms of the license agreement" radio button and click Next.
- When asked "Choose to install...", select the "Install driver only" radio button and click Next.
- Click Install.
- Wait for the "InstallShield Wizard Complete" dialogue box to appear.
- Click Finish.

4) Insert your Belkin F5D8053 N wireless USB adapter into a powered USB port on your computer. Given the size of its casing potentially obstructing other nearby USB ports, you may want to use the stand that comes with it.

You should get a notification from Windows 7 saying drivers were NOT successfully installed.

5) Go the Windows "Control Panel" and open up "Device Manager". Under the category "Other devices" will be "F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter" with a yellow triangle and black exclamation point (warning symbol) next to it. Right click the F5D8053 adapter and select "Update Driver Software..."

6) When asked "How do you want to search for driver software?", select "Browse my computer for driver software. On the following screen, select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".

From the "Select your device's type from the list below" listing, select "Network adapters" and click Next.

From the "Manufacturer", select "Ralink Technology, Corp." [DO NOT SELECT "Ralink Technology Corp." Make sure to select the one WITH the 'comma' in the manufacturer name.] From the "Network Adapter" list, select "802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card (Ralink Technology, Corp.)". Click Next.

You will receive a dialogue box titled "Update Driver Warning" stating "Installing this device driver is not recommmended because Windows cannot verify that it is compatible with your hardware. If the driver is no compatible, your hardware will not work correctly and your computer might become unstable or stop working completely. Do you want to continue installing this driver?" Click Yes.

Windows will beep a few times and the blue light on the Belkin adapter should flash. You will receive a dialogue stating "Windows has successfully updated your driver software" for the device "802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card". Click Close.

"802.11n USB Wireles LAN Card" will now appear under "Network adapters" in the "Device Manager". (It is possible that the device may have a number after it depending on how often you've installed/uninstalled the drivers and didn't take the time to clear out any leftover registry entries afterward. This is not harmful.)

Thats it

Freedom to Innovate

I recall when Bill Gates was doing his PR gimmicks, desperately trying to keep the Dept. of Justice at bay. He used to invoke the "...we must remain independent (free from Gov't restrictions or 'breakups' so we can have the freedom to innovate."

Seeing this lousy and inexcusable deficiency in Windows 7 is just one more example of why Micro$oft deserves all the legal crap foisted upon them by the US DoJ and the EU competitive council. Forcing US to go through such contortions just to get some lousy $35 piece of crap hardware to work...especially when it worked under Vista!

Shameful!

Thank goodness they haven't (yet) screwed up home theater products like my plasma or 5.1 receiver!

Any other suggestions would be appreciated, its driving me nuts. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Its almost like the USB stick wont stay connected, the blue light is never on expect when i first plug it in and then it goes out. Thanks in advance.

i actually sent an email to belkin, asking why they hadnt bothered releasing 64 bit drivers yet, i even told them that ralink had the drivers so i saw no reason why they couldnt, i got an email saying "thank you for alerting us to this problem, unfortunately we havent released any windows 7 drivers yet i would recommend you try installing in compatibility mode, if you have any further issues please contact us again" and a ban from the belkin support section, nice customer service no? i can confirm the RAlink drivers do work, they just take forever to download, trs350z have you tried in copatibility mode with XP SP3? thats what worked for me, and of course dont forget to reboot after installing them, it will look like it hasnt worked, but the moment you reboot everything will be working

SOLVED

0) Uninstall the Belkin wireless utility. In control panel -> programs and features

1) Go to Belkin's Driver Download Website:

Belkin : Support : F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter - Drivers

2) Look at your adapter for the version number.
3) Download your version.
4) Use 7zip to extract the files from the .exe

Get 7zip here: 7-Zip

5) Install 7zip
6) Navigate to the .exe you downloaded from the Belkin website
7) Right click on the .exe
8) Hold the mouse over the 7zip option, then go over to "Extract to..."
9) Click start, control panel, device manager (make sure you are viewing the control panel as icons not categories or it won't be there).
10) Plug the adapter into your usb port.
11) After it fails to auto download the driver, highlight the adapter in the device manager.
12) Click the green up arrow in the toolbar.
13) Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
14) Click Browse and navigate to the folder you extracted with 7zip
15) Check Include subfolders and click next.
16) It will then install the raw driver and not the program. Use the windows wireless utility to connect to your wireless network.

Sorry to break it down, but it seems people are really having trouble with this, and I wanted to make it clear, and save people a bunch of money...
