The Hardware Identifier you said to use came back with no matches. the Model is: F5D8035, Belkin N wireless Adapter.

You'll need the version number which should be on the adapter, probably in tiny type.

Once you have that, the model has Win7 or Vista drivers for each version here: Belkin : Support F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter - Drivers

Be warned... if you have the V3 then Belkins drivers don't like Windows 7 very much. I have that adapter myself, and had to grab the drivers straight from Ralink.

Here's a tutorial if you need to go that route, it was written specifically with the v3.

May be worth trying my tutorial anyway... apparently your chipset is a Ralink rt2500 if you need to grab those.

Edit: Try gregs suggestion first though.

Go to Device Manager, click on Belkin Network Adapter Driver Update tab, browse to folder where download unzipped, try to find driver folder to pick up driver manually.

Edit: Just saw Martin's post. Work with him as he knows this model.

Ok, right Im just saying this, My adapter IS Belkin but it doesn't recognise itself as such, when i plug it into my computer it's just an 802.11N wireless adapter, the belkin software doesn't recognise it either. Im not sure why.

Ok.... I have two suggestions for you.

First create a system restore point, as you will need to roll back if this goes wrong and you have to go to option 2.

Option 1: Follow steps 6-10 of the tutorial I posted above, but rather than clicking "Ralink, Technology Corp" when it asks you for the brand, instead click "Belkin" and then go from there.

If that doesn't work, fall back to your restore point, and then go for Option 2: follow the tutorial in it's entirety

I'm thinking you'll have to go for Option 2, as manually finding drivers from a Belkin installer is like getting blood from a stone.... that's what I tried before I discovered the Ralink method.

Do you have an FCC ID for the adapter? It should be somewhere on the back.
