The drivers for a 64 bit version of Vista will almost never be the same as the 32 bit version.

IOGEARs website does not list a 64 bit driver for your device.

Belkin wireless g dektop card part no f5d7000ak is not working in windows 7 64bit


If you are using an older Belkin Networking product, you may not have support for Windows 7 with your current software.
Software updates will be posted as they become available. Please check back if your product is not currently supported.
Some updates may still be in the process of going through Microsoft's official certification program. Although they have been thoroughly tested, they may present a warning message when the driver is being installed. These drivers will install on 32 bit operating systems but not on 64 bit systems, which is the normal and expected behavior.
Even though your product may currently not be supported under Windows 7, it may very well work on it; in the majority of cases, software and drivers for Windows Vista will work on Windows 7 without a problem.

Hi there... Iogear Bluetooth micro adapter 2.1 for USB port, software installed... After inserting the adapter, laptop freezes.


What is the operating system of your computer? Can you tell me the exact model number of your Bluetooth Adapter (it usually starts with GBU)?

Check the link below, and see the system requirements:

http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/

You need to check also the system type of your computer (32 or 64-bit OS). Some IOGEAR devices could only support 32-bit OS. If you are running 64-bit OS, that could cause the problem.

Try to uninstall the Bluetooth driver. Reboot the computer, then reload the installation disk that came with it. Once the hardware wizard ask you to plug the device it, just continue the installation, BUT DO NOT plug the device.

After the installation is done, reboot the computer again, the PLUG the device in WHILE the computer is shutting down. Once the computer comes back up, then it should install the other necessary driver. And that should work.

Good luck!

Need working Windows 7 driver for Linksys WUSB54G V.1.0 Adapter


This driver should work with Vista, and based on the FAQ it should work with 64-bit although it wasn't designed for the 64-bit OS.

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WUSB54G_dr,0.exe

If the link doesn't work, let me know. I'll direct you to the download page to retrieve the driver.

Would like to install the adapter on a vista 64 bit pc


I'm sorry to say this but Linksys don;t have any driver made for a 64 bit computer for this adapter and that is the reason why it wont work with a 64 bit computer.......

No System Tray Blue Tooth Icon


The GBU321 installation software that comes with the CD was the problem. Called their tech service who made me uninstall the BlueTooth Drivers that the CD and Windows 2000 installed first, and then "directly" download and install the BROADCOM drivers. The adapter works very well now. Thanks.

Can't install on new computer


Are you running 64 bit Vista?

If so you will need 64 Bit drivers for the device

DO NOT CONNECT THE DEVICE UNTIL IT TELLS YOU

When the windows warning pops up, Install the driver anyway. then connect the device, that should fix the problem It worked on my 64bit Vista Ultimate

You need to uninstall/re-install the Bluetooth driver. Once the driver is uninstalled, reload the CD first to the computer and once you see a message "No Bluetooth device was detected", all you have to do is click on 'Cancel' and continue the installation. Run through the installation until you finish it.

Restart the computer and plug the GBU211 into the computer while the computer is restarting. This should help you.

Have a great day!

Can't install drivers


This means you are using Vista x64, the 64-bit version.
It accepts only drivers which are signed by microsoft.
Make sure you are downloading 64-bit drivers instead of 32-bit.
According to this article, Belkin supports the signed drivers.
If there are no 64-bit drivers they will come available soon...
