Man, you give up easy - but that's your wish!

Thread disengaged!
Whilst I truly appreciate all the help that you and the other guys on here have provided, I am also concious of the comment I received from Belkin Tech Support who you would expect to know inside out, upside down and backwards their 'product'?

Their answer was: We have not designed a driver for Win7 and the adapter you have.

Having as I said been grateful for the help received there has to be a cut off point when time and effort becomes second to cost of a new albeit different USB adapter.
9 Hours so far versus 18 for a new adapter which is guaranteed to work and also cater for future requirements?
For me it's reached the point of 'no contest'.
That's life and why we have such a crappy economy.
Thanks

belkin said exactly the same thing about my adapter... yet im using it quite happily with 7 after a little tweaking, i would suggest that you follow the tutorial i posted to install using those Ralink drivers, i wouldnt be suprised if it works

i am happily using a belkin G+MIMO f5d9050 uk3001 usb in win7 x64. signed drivers are derived from the ralink vista x64 drivers. it's how i am connected at the moment. copy attached.

p.s. - do NOT use the belkin/ralink software with the drivers, the inbuilt windows wireless autoconfig works fine.

Hi kronckew,
Looked up the 'chipset' for the Belkin and it turns out to be RT73.
No software is listed on ralink website for this chipset under Windows Software.

I also downloaded the link/rar file that you kindly provided which contains 4 files, but cannot get them recognised as 'driver update' after connecting the Belkin to the laptop, any chance of some install pointers please?
Thanks

Hi Martin,

Went through your 'tutorial' and have tried a number of ralink drivers including the RT73 ones which are supposed to be this Belkin chipset, but every time I try to install one I get the Win7 'Warning message' about the driver causing problems and not being compatible, so I ignore it, the laptop then crashes and I get 'Blue Screen'.
Thankfully it re-boots but no new driver and Belkin still not working.

I am beginning to think that certain 'blocks' have been installed in this laptop to stop any modifications being made!
