From a quick Google search, there seems to be a common problem with this adapter not installing correctly. However, I haven't been able to locate a fix online. I have found that there also seems to be concensus that Belkin level 1 Tech Support can't help.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled. tried installing new drivers from Belkin.com. I've tried using the new hardware wizard to install, and each time there is a problem with the install. Sometimes I get a message about the driver not installing correctly, and then the message will be that it is not configured correctly.

Has anyone else encountered the same problem, or by chance, seen a fix?

The one thing USB was never designed to be used for is networking and you are at the mercy of every other USB device you may have used in the past and/or are using now. If you had another USB wireless, have you uninstalled its software? If you have retired any printers, did you uninstall their software, too? (Older Dell/Lexmark software, in particular can wreak havoc)

Once you have uninstalled any older device software (things you don't have anymore), try turning the PC off, unplugging everything else USB (except a keyboard and mouse), then fire the system up and try it again.

But; if you want reliability, get a PCI card for a desktop or a PC-Card/ExpressCard for a laptop. Then your networking won't be messing up your USB.

Thanks for your response, but this seems to be a product specific issue and I was wondering if anyone had managed a fix from either Belkin or Ralink.
