How to Install Ralink based Belkin Network Adapters

warning   Warning
If you install non belkin drivers belkin wont support it, you are on your own, you have been warned. Luckily that's what windows 7 forums is for.

This tutorial is designed for ralink based adapters only, dont try doing it with a different chipset or it won't work
Note   Note
In this tutorial I will be showing you how I installed my belkin adapter, with a specific chipset driver, chances are yours is different, so dont just install the driver that i have or it won't work.
Note   Note
Kudos to Busker991 who first posted this, im just making it a tutorial in case his wonderful step by step instructions disappear





1) google your chipset and find out which it is (literally just type in the adapter name and version number and chipset its usually on the first couple of hits) example: i typed F5D8053 v3 chipset and found out that my chipset is a RT2870

2) go to Ralinks driver section: Ralink corp. and download the driver for your chipset (dont worry about them asking for your details you dont need to input them just hit Accept)

3) right click the file you just downloaded and click the Compatibility Tab, then check run in compatibility mode with XP SP2 and run as administrator and click aply ok
Note   Note
make sure you click XP sp2 anything else will fail (even other SP's of XP)

4)run the installer, and check install driver only

5) Insert your adapter into a powered USB port on your computer, You should get a notification from Windows 7 saying drivers were NOT successfully installed.

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

7) 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".


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



9)From the "Manufacturer", select "Ralink Technology, Corp." or Ralink Technology Corp (i think the b/g adapters are under the one without the comma and the N adapters are under the one with the comma, but im not sure, you may have to have a poke around, the important thing is you select the right type (b/g) and whether or not it is USB) From the "Network Adapter" list, select your adapter (make sure you select either B/g or N and whether or not it is USB depending on the adapter!) Click Next.

10) windows will now beep a bit, then it will install the driver, (a restart may be required)

and thats it!

Note   Note
If you follow this and get it working please post what adapter and chipset you have so i can update this list
list of known working chipsets and adapters:
adapter: F5D8053 v3 Chipset: RT2870
adapter: K7SF5D7050 v1 Chipset: USB Rt257X
adapter: f5d9050 v3002 (probably all v3's but unconfirmed) Chipset rt2671

hi xXsevenXx what is the FCC ID? it should be on the back of the adapter somewhere, i can probably find the info with that for you,

edit: according to google the F5D7632uk4A is a router, not a network adapter....

im confused... the F5D7632/k7SF5D7632 is a router... what problems are you having? as long as your network adapter works on 7 then you should have no problem connecting to the router, what network adapter do you have? this tut won't help you with that router im afraid

I'm having probs connecting to the net.
It's taken me about 3 hours to get connected.
I'm getting a DHCP error, as I'm not being assigned an IP address

do yourself a favour, start a thread in Network and Sharing, im sure someone can help you out, unfortunately this sort of thing isn't my area of expertise: Network & Sharing - Windows 7 Forums

the problem is probably with the router, not with the adapter, this tut is about installing Network adapters (like USB wireless sticks)
