Wireless adapter help

Likes # 0

I can't get my Belkin F5D8055 v2 wireless adapter to work in Windows 7. Works fine in Vista.

I've downloaded the lastest drivers and installed. Device manager says the device is working but is disabled. I can't enable it. I've tried istalling in compatibility mode too but no joy.

Belkin support have been unable to help and told me to contact Microsoft. Any ideas?

Thanks

When you did the update driver in the device manager did you browse to the belkin folder in your program folder.

I never had to install the driver with any compatibility. I just installed it then I just updated the driver in the device manager and going into the program files/belkin/model number and then it started to work.

l24 - Yes they were the drivers. The WLAN service was set to manual should I set this to Auto?

kristain - I followed the installer, I didn't manually select any files.
