Windows 7: No wireless connection after changing USB port of adapt

No wireless connection after changing USB port of adapt

I am using the Belkin FD7050 v3 USB adapter. I was having all kinds of problems getting 7 to recognize it and find a network.

I got it work by installing Vista x64, running all windows updates and installing the adapter, then doing an in-place upgrade.

Everything was working great, no wireless problems at all. Then I unplugged the adapter and plugged it back in to a different USB port. Win 7 recognized the adapter right away and installed drivers, but it can't see any networks. Very similar to the first time I installed 7 before upgrading from Vista.

I have since tried uninstalling/re-installing. Letting Win 7 find drivers, manually installing the FD7050 v3 drivers from Belkin. Tried installing the Belkin drivers in XP compatibility mode and Vista Compatibility mode. Nothing works.

I'm trying to not have to completely reinstall Vista x64 and then upgrade to 7 x64 again. Any ideas?

Never solved the problem, but I've since reinstalled vista, then upgraded to 7 and this time I didn't change USB ports on the adapter after install.

Everything is working great
