Windows 7: Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter Driver Problems

As for the Partition Part, you can do it the way that johngalt said to do it (no offense here) or you can do it the simplier way. When you install W7 create 2 partitions in addition to the 200MB partition W7 creates. It will be measured in MB to create the partition so have a calculator around (1024MB=1GB) you'll need around 25GB MIN to run W7. once you create 2 partitions, continue installing W7 on one and then install XP on the other one.

Hi... this is AJ....

Here is the fix..
Goto this stie belkin.com/support---> select Network adaptors..
amd download the drivers for ur adaptor depending upon the version...

Once it is downloaded.. Right click the setup file... go properties... select Compatibility
Leave a check mark on "Run in compatibility mode" and selesct Vista service pack 1 or 2.. click apply abd then ok...

Now double click the setup file.. run it...
Connect the adaptor and restart the machine..
Ur adaptor will be installed...

Rejoice, fellow Belkin users! They've recently release a new v4 with compatability specs: "Windows 2000, Windows XP 32 bit, Windows XP 64 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit, Windows Vista 64 bit, Windows 7 32 bit, Windows 7 64 bit; size: 18.6 Mb"!! So go ahead and try it. I've been using it and it seems to have fixed my problem !

Seems like you have a couple questions, here are a few resources that may help you figure out how you can best proceed:

Check software and driver compatibility (and download driver updates) here: Windows 7 Compatibility Center home.

Set up multiboot: Install more than one operating system (multiboot).

Cheers,

AJ,
Thanks for the tip. I followed your instruction while installing the Belkin USB Wireless Adapter Model F5D8053 v.3000 and worked. Before that, I had the same problem as described earlier in the threat.
Good day!

i found the FD8053 V3 drivers didnt work for me in 64 bit... but this post here: Belkin F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter Problem shows you how to get them from RALINK and get them working, worked for me,

I also emailed Belkin explaining (politely) how i felt it was appalling that they hadnt done their drivers yet... i got a short reply pointing me to the broken drivers and a ban fro the support section (where you can email them) nice customer service there....

Is Belkin going to make a native driver for the wireless g adapter? And if one exists already can you give me
a direct link to it?

Thank you.

Belkin F5D7050 Network adapter problem. Windows 7

I have recently installed Windows 7 as a fresh installation, removing my previous xp. I have tried all of what has been written above, (And elsewhere) and cannot get my Belkin F5D7050 `g` Network adapter to install. Using version x4 of the driver update it runs through the process but when Windows restarts it cannot recognise the software through Device Manager. I also have an alternative Ethernet Connection to my Net Gear Router, (Currently connected to a 2nd PC running XP) but Windows 7 doesnt recognise this either through my Win 7 Connection. I have thought of Updating the software in my Router but if this is as unsuccessful I will be left with no internet from which to solve my problems.

Should I try re-installing Windows? or go back to xp and throw Win 7 in the bin?

If anyone can help?
