Ed: I posted this in networking, but since it doesn't actually involve a network I thought I'd better move it here.

I'm trying to get the above product, a wireless USB hub, to work with my computer. I've contacted Belkin, but they haven't been super-helpful.

The first problem was in the installation instructions. Step 3: "Open the Wireless USB manager". No such program exists, with my install of Vista at least. No driver software came with the hub.

Windows searched for a driver, and found one for F5U302, not 303. It didn't work. (Credit where it's due: Vista said "it doesn't work", something which I usually have to figure out myself)

I contacted Belkin, and they said I didn't need a driver, but the WUSB manager, "software which is a built-in interface in the system by laptop vendor". I asked where this software might be found, since I didn't have it, but they couldn't help.

I am trying to contact PB, but my laptop is out of warranty, which means that I am offically dirt. You beautiful people are my last hope.

How can I get this to work? Is there any kind of mythical universal WUSB thing as Belkin would have me believe? Google has failed to be my friend. Where can I find it?

Vista is supposed to not need a driver, however these drivers may be worth a shot: http://www.belkin.co...aid=9332&scid=1

Thanks, but as I said I tried that before and it didn't fly.

I'll give it another shot today.
