I bought a Belkin Surf+ Wireless Adapter (802.11n ) and installed it. The specs say that it is Win 7 compatible. Even so I went to the Belkin website and downloaded the drivers from there. The installation went smoothly. The adapter is recognised and is listed in the device manager as working correctly and is enabled.
However the 'Network Icon' in the task bar shows the no connections are available. Going to the Network and Sharing centre and clicking on 'Connect to a network' produces the same result - no connections available.
Clicking on 'Manage Wireless Networks' produces a blank list (there should be at least 2 networks available - my own and a neighbour's). Clicking 'Add' and 'manually create a network profile' produces a screen with the message 'An unexpected error occurred'.
I am using Win 7 64 bit Home Premium and an 802.11n wireless router.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Good morning Ian, may I suggest that you hard wire connect the desktop to the router along with the wireless adaptor and re-load and install the belkin drivers? Let Windows 7 perfrom this function instaead of Belkin perform it.
