    Hi all, I've recently bought Windows 7, installed it and guess what - driver on CD not compatible with w7, so installed XP ( dual boot with w7 ) so I can get my internet connection and download drivers for winows 7 but they dont have any drivers that work with w7:(.
    My wireless card is a belkin N1 wireless desktop card.

    Ive googled the problem and someone reported that vista drivers work fine with windows 7 - I've tried it and no they dont, I've also tried atheros drivers that are supposed to work with windows 7 - no they dont ...

    Arrggh looks like I'll have to buy a new wireless adaptor :(

    Belkin only list Windows 2000 and XP SP2 on their site for that particular product, so you might be out of luck unfortunately. If it helps I have a Netgear WG311T that works fine with Vista/W7.

    I have a Belkin wireless G card that works fine in Windows 7 64 bit. The driver wasn't found on installation so I had to use a wired connection to get online. Windows Update then found a driver that works fine.

    Yes, I used it with XP 32, 32 bit Vista and 64 bit Windows 7. Installed automatically with W7 x64.
