Wireless Issues

I have just got windows 7 home premium 64bit today and after install I can't get windows to auto-install the drivers for my wireless USB adapter, I've tried searching for the drivers to install manually but that doesn't work either.
Any help would be great.

My adapter is the Belkin F5D7051.

Yeah it's the G model, I've tried that site and had no luck with it. It's the v1000 as far as I know.

Yeah I have the disc, I tried that idea but when i tell it to look on the disc for the driver it says none found.

The 2nd link just ends up sending me to the belkin site for the download which doesn't work either.

I'm tempted to give up and just go buy one that I know works with windows 7

Force install the driver by using the device manager. Right click on adapter, choose update driver, browse, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse. Find the .inf in the driver package and click ok.

Given up, nothing works, just spent hours feeding a cable to my pc instead.

That's alright. More secure and faster that way. You'll be glad you did this.
