Yes it is compatible for all windows version after windows xp.
IF you want to configure it follow below direction.
You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

I had to put my computer back to factory settings and now my Belkin wont go on wireless.It does work if i plug cable in.Is there anything i can do?


HI,
I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.

How do i make my windows 7 laptop compatible with belkin router?


Routers do not have any Windows 7 compatibility issues. Simply plug the cable in the ethernet port, and set the IP address to DHCP.
If you want wireless, you will need to configure the wireless network in Windows 7. There is a wizard in Windows 7 for that.

Are there new drivers for teh Wireless G Plus MIMO USB adapters for windows 7?


From Belkin's Support web site: Windows 7 Product Support Information Windows 7 users:
If you are using an older Belkin Networking product, you may not have support for Windows 7 with your current software. Please visit your product specific support site to check for updated Windows 7-compatible software for your product.
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.
