Windows 7: Belkin wireless adapter not working for windows 7

Belkin wireless adapter not working for windows 7

Hello, I have a F5D8055v2 Belkin Wireless N+ USB Wireless Network Adapter which im having problems with in windows 7 64-bit. I have tried the following steps in order to try to make this adapter work

1) Downloaded and installed the latest drivers
2) Run the disc which came with the adapter in vista compatibility mode and normally.
3) Installed the drivers from the disc directly from the windows driver install wizard from the device manager.
4) Just connect the adapter and let windows install the drivers without a disc or program but this failed and said "Drivers could not be sucessfully installed"

All these steps have been attempted and none of these work. The problem I have been getting is that the drivers would install all fine and windows would detect the wireless adapter and the adapter would light up but the problem is when I go to enable it in the adapter settings I click enable and it says "Enabled" but it doesn't change it to enabled, it stays at disabled so there is no way i can get the adapter to work.

I have tried 3 other wireless adapters like the Netgear WN111, some dual rangemax netgear adapter and a TL wn321g and all have failed to work with my computer so im starting to think that there is something wrong with my computer and not the adapters.

I am in desperate need of help so if anyone here knows how I could fix this please post here ASAP. I would highly appreciate your help and effort.

Can you check device manager for an7y "unknown devices"

Please go to start>search>type device manager.
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?

If y our driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.

I have seen that at a few times and when I did see it I updated the drivers from my disc. My disc says no where that it supports Windows 7 though.

A lot of other drivers are June and July of 2010. Grab them too.
Particularly helpful if you find missing devices, as indicated by zigzag.

When you first boot up your computer, one of the very first things you should see on the monitor is the bios version.

If you type SYSTEM INFORMATION in the search, you will also find your bios information (screen capture is NOT mine - lol)

EDIT 3: NEVERMIND, I RANG UP BELKIN AND THEY FIXED IT FOR ME
