Re: Hughost

Seems there are problems with Vista. Contact Belkin see if they offer support or firmware updates to work with Vista.

Belkin f5d8635-4a N+ router - autosetup won't work with windows 7 32bit

Are you running the autosetup program from a cd?
Click the start menu
Click the Computer icon on the right
Locate the optical drive icon under Removable Storage (it will probably be labelled Belkin)
Click the icon with the right mouse button and select Open from the list that appears
Now look for an icon labelled setup or something that has a belkin logo or something similar.
Click the icon with the right mouse button and select Run as Administrator from the list that appears. (if you cant find run as administrator then it is the wrong icon, try another.)
Does it work now?

If not, do you have a friend with a laptop that is running XP or Vista that you could borrow just to run the setup?

I have totalmedia 3,5 arcsoft per windows vista, but i need to use it with windows 7. Could you help me? Thank you Gennaro

The router may not be the problem. It may be the compatibility issue.
Here is the article that addresses running older program with Windows 7
Make older programs run in this version of Windows

Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=745c7204-cf9f-46fb-a86c-98d4b9c644cf&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us Go to the Windows website to watch the video. (1:26)

If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.

  • Do not use the Program Compatibility troubleshooter on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

To run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
  1. ? to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

  • You can also open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut and then clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.

To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the program icon, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.



Compatibility mode

Runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Try this setting if you know the program is designed for (or worked in) a specific previous version of Windows.

Run in 256 colors

Uses a limited set of colors in the program. Some older programs are designed to use fewer colors.

Run in 640 × 480 screen resolution

Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphical user interface appears jagged or is rendered improperly.

Disable visual themes

Disables themes on the program. Try this setting if you notice problems with the menus or buttons on the title bar of the program.

Disable desktop composition

Turns off transparency and other advanced display features. Choose this setting if window movement appears erratic or you notice other display problems.

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is in use. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program. For more information, see Make the text on your screen larger or smaller.

Privilege level

Runs the program as an administrator. Some programs require administrator privileges to run properly. If you are not currently logged on as an administrator, this option is not available.

Change settings for all users

Lets you choose settings that will apply to all users on this computer.

I have drivers for windows vista but they can not be installed on windows 7. I need install my router on windows 7

If you have the Windows Vista or Windows XP driver, try installing in Compatibility Mode. Here's a tutorial I've posted recently (click HERE.), but please select Windows Vista instead of Windows XP. There isn't problem even if you select Windows xp, but since it's windows vista driver, that should work perfectly.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I upgrade from vista to window 7.but window 7 did not detect my wireless model f700.i went to hp to download the driver but only window vista nothing for window7

Windows 7 has the option to virtualize drivers to make them work, try to install as usual but before installing right click on the installation file and in the context menu click on properties, the properties windows will show up, browse through the tabs until you get to the compatibility settings, click on the dropdown list and set the compatibility mode for vista or XP depending on the drivers click on apply and then on accept, try to install your drivers now, if Vista drivers are not installed successfully try installing XP drivers after setting the compatibility mode for the installation file to XP.

Also remember to run the drivers' installation file as administrator.

It works on most cases, if you still have problems let me know and I'm sure we can both figure this out.

I have the 615 and a new laptop with windows 7. The laptop receives a strong signal but says it cannot run d-link with windows 7

Hi i'm Rain.
Ok first you need to locate you D-Link Driver.
Then you need to check the compatibility.
Most things running Windows 7 are compatible to Windows Vista
Find the D-Link Icons right click and look for compatibilitiy.
Or click properties then look for compatibility.
Click compatiblity and select Run Compatible With: What ever your system was.
If you got it with windows 7 . You may have to try each Compatibility : 2000/XP/Vista . Until you pick the compatible configuration..
I had the same problem when i upgraded.

if a software/product is not compatible with vista, it is best not to use with vista. Either switch to xp, or buy another product which is compatible with vista. Most adpators nowawadays are compatible with vista, and i do NOT recommend buying a d-link product.

Vista Compatibility with DI-704P

The print server software does not need to be installed in order to print to the printer attached to the 704P from Vista. I went out to D-LINK's website and there are step-by-step instructions for configuring port and associating a printer with that port.

See the following link:

These instructions are for 2000/XP but they are very similiar to what you need to do for Windows Vista. I tried it and it worked fine. It did take me several tries however, as I should have read through the steps completely first.
