Error Code 10 9/10 times is a driver problem.

Did you try those Realtek drivers I linked to?

If it's not having it (for whatever reason) then it may be worth going down the "Manually Select Drivers from the list" method. Find the Realtek USB N option, and try that.

Failing that... as you said you did have problems with it before, it could be that the adapter is actually dead....

This is about as far as I can take you I'm afraid.... I'll ask some other Guru's to look in and see if they have any insights. Shame really... I have had some bloody genius idea's in this thread, even if I do say so myself.

Did you try these drivers? If they're Vista I'd also try them in Vista Compat mode as Martin suggested.

Are you sure the adapter still works in another computer? A Vista-era adapter (as the drivers given for this prove) should always work with Win7 unless its faulty.

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

The Adapter was being used on Xp, I have no idea what Era you would class it as, and im pretty sure it is faulty due to its own decision of changing what it is lol.

Sometimes wireless adapters are mistaken by the installer and issued incorrect drivers.

I'm guessing it's Vista era adapter by the drivers offered at the link I provided. So it should work.

I would try it in another computer before writing it off. See what driver it autoloads, or try one of the drivers provided.

I would also fiddle with various compat modes on the XP adapter and google it to see if/how others have gotten either of these to work with Win7.

Others are not as obessive. I don't stop til I'm sure.

Pretty sure itll just autoload more realtek drivers which is quite wrong rofl.
