No, I have the same problem. The windows 7 driver software installs without error but Windows 8 continues to report no driver available.

If you installed over your Windows 7 install, the drivers should still be in your windows.old folder at c:\windows.old\windows\system32\driverStore\

If you go to your device manager and choose update driver software, and point it to the windows.old driver store it should find the driver and install it properly

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.

I was able to get mine working by using the USB 2.0 Stick drivers from RALINK TECH after using 'browse my computer'
