You were probably using it on an XP or Vista PC. You will need to go to www.belkin.com and download the Windows 7 wireless adapter driver. Go to belkin, support and drivers, put the F8T003 model number in, put Win7 as your operating system, download the driver and double-click on it to install it. Then insert your Bluetooth Wireless adapter in and it should work just fine.
This device is well known for the high level of current draw that it requires in order to work. I would suggest that you remove all other unnecessary USB devices and try the device again. It is more than likely that your system will find the device.
The quickest way of ensuring continued usage, when you have numerous USB devices, is to purchased a powered USB hub and ensure that the Wireless adapter is connected to one of the powered USB ports on the hub.
Connect the device on another USB slot at the back of your computer. You may also try connecting the device on another computer to further isolate the problem. If the adapter will not be recognized on another USB slot or another computer I assume that your USB adapter is defective.
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.
Ok, there is no longer support for these adapters, and there are plenty of problems with getting them going and keeping them going.
I would get a refund if they are new, if not don't waste any more time with them and buy a more user recognised product.
