has any body got a driver for windows 8 for install my adapter
Just updated to Windows 8 from Windows XP. Have a Belkin F5D8053v3 "N" adapter. I also have an older Belkin N router (nice simple little router, btw, with good range).
I had to connect with a network cable and download the F5d8053 Version 3 driver from Belkin's download page.
Only downside is Windows 8 I can only get "G" speeds (54Mbps) max with this NIC. With Windows XP I was getting true "N" speeds (150-300Mbps).
Looks like some kind of incompatibility in Windows 8 is disallowing the "N" capability of this adapter. Never tried the adapter with Windows 7 so I can't compare that.
The network speed isn't an issue for me. My issue is losing the extra range that "N" is supposed to provide to the farthest corner of my house.
