Hi Mxn

The latest vista Drivers work in Windows 7 (well mine do ! I'm using 5xxx Adaptor), although it did take a couple of reboots to get everything working.

Remove existing drivers and Adaptor Download and install the correct driver for your hardware from here....

Belkin : Support : F5D7050 Drivers

Plug in your adaptor only when instructed to by the installer.

reboot and enter any pass phrase using the network icon in the tray.

If not working reboot again and should be ok

Windows Vista 32bit, Windows Vista 64bit, Windows 7 32bit beta

I have the same adapter, but none of these solutions have worked for me. I have installed the latest driver in compatibility mode and have tried restarting a few times, but no luck.

Under "Devices and Printers" the state of the adapter is "not working properly" and the only solution according to troubleshooter is to reinstall the driver. Doing this does not solve the problem.

Does anyone have any idea to fix this?

After you install the drivers you have to go into the device manager and update the driver for the device just browse to yourdrive:\Program Files\Belkin\modelnumber and it will install the drivers. I had to do this after running the setup for my belkin device.

Thanks for the help! I am still having some troubles, however. Updating the driver from device manager does not seem to work, I browse to the driver's folder in program files, but I get an error stating that driver software was not found.
