I've been using a Belkin wirless adapter on an older laptop and after 20 minutes of use or so it will be hot and Windows will no longer recognise it or use it. I installed all the correct drivers and they appear to be up to date. So I'm not sure what is wrong. It

It seems that if I have it on a USB extender then it becomes unrecognised about 30mins after use.

It's model number is F6D4050 v1
And the 28days to return it to the shop has long passed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

sounds like a faulty unit - it should still be under warranty for a year

have you tried it on any other laptop - that would probably be the next thing i would do
