    I have to have this desktop wireless, wireing it is simply not an option, so please don't post saying to wire it. I purchesed the Belking N1 Desktop Wireless Adapter, mainly becouse I have always had good luck with their products and they are generally rated fairlly high. I have installed the device as per the included directions. I have called Belkin and had the device replaced. I have called them and installed as they described and any which way in between. Nothing as worked.
    I can get it to work for a short while and than it will lock my pc up and or cause it crash on end. The only remedy is to roll back the OS and take it out. Belkin keeps telling me that it is fine (the adapter) but that is bs if you ask me. I am currently using the pre-n version of that same adapter but it is not compatible with vista (although it does still work on it). I am pretty sure that the pre-n version is not in any way compatible with vista service pack 2 and most likly not at all with windows 7.
    Any ideas from anyone as a possible solution? And yes I have updated the firmware and used that version.

    because it most likely is the reason I cant update to service pack on vista.

    I am having EXACTLY the same problem as etaf. One thing I did that worked for a while was install another wireless adapter. Later I switched back and the Belkin worked for 3 days! Now it won't stay connected at all again! This sucks!

    But I love Windows 7 and REALLY don't want to go back to Vista. Maybe I'll reinstall Windows 7 again, but then I'm worried that the adapter won't work then either! Catch 22!
