Windows 7 compatibility?

Summary: What many of us want to know is whether this card is compatible with Windows 7. It appears from reading the Belkin site that there are 4 versions to this card but nowhere does it suggest Win7 compatibility. One or more versions are compatible with Vista 32/64 bit.
Pros: Great price. Free shipping. Promotion offer.
Summary: If you think your getting a deal, your probably not. Always research before you buy. Most electronic & tech stores mark up there items close to 200%.
Pros: 3 eggs for Fast, Free Shipping
Cons: Well I just purchased 2 of these at under $11 a piece thinking I was getting a steal, boy was I wrong. I just looked this up, and a very popular auction site had same ones for same price and free shipping.
Summary: There are two versions of this card. The F5D8011 v1000 is based on the Atheros XSPAN chipset. The newer v2000 card uses the Marvell TopDog chipset. The same applies to Belkin's N1 routers as well... Make sure you pair chipset with chipset, even cross-vendor.
Pros: Well packaged Slim antenna housing
Cons: Weaker signal vs. competition Two versions with same model #
Summary: The router looks nice and is easy to configure, however it keeps overheating and drops connection if you try to transfer something big (about 2GB on LAN) from one PC to another. I have attached an external fan to keep it cool during online gaming.
Summary: I bought this router 13 months ago, and for the most part it has been OK. It does lose internet connectivity about every two weeks and needs resetting, but after my last Linksys router, which needed resetting once a day, it has been an improvement.
Summary: I bought this Belkin N1 Vision in september, i had a brief try at installing it within the first 2 weeks then tried again a few weeks later, no luck then finally tried this week. The instructions look very simple but alas they were not working for me, I had to phone belkin and was on the phone for...
Summary: I recieved this product 3 weeks ago as a replacement for my original wireless G system which worked tirelessly for 4 years. Hence going for a BELKIN again. Bit concerned about the packaging - with such a sensitive bit of equipment it concerns me.
Summary: I have had this router for the past 1 year and below are my observations as compared to my previous Netgear DG834g router. (after installing it, I upgraded to the latest firmware 1.00.15) +VE - It looks stylish - The front display is useful for quick information e.g.
Summary: Bought this by mistake, although was not clear from description. Spent an hour trying to connect until phoned Belkin helpdesk (in India) who informed me that this product will not work with BT Broadband. I am sure it is a good product hence 3 stars, but never got it to work.
Summary: A very smart looking bit of kit that seems to do a reasonable job. Wireless range isnt overly impressive in a realistic environment but may be all WiFi serves suffer the same here. My only major problem is with VPN. I bought this for many reasons, one of which was its so called VPN capabilities.
