Where are the new drivers for the Belkin F5U409 USB to Serial adapter that will work with Windows 7?
It worked with Windows Vista, but now I am running the 64-bit version of Windows 7 and the Windows Vista drivers will not work....

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.
I have the F5U103v. That is a USB-to-serial adapter too. If you use "Everest home or corporate" software and connect your hardware, although you have a driver error, Everest will indicate to you (in devices/USB devices) the true hardware manufacturer. In this case "Prolific Technology Inc." and not "Belkin".
There is a link for my case and probably yours, but if it doesn't run, use Everest to locate the real manufacturer:
And click on "PL-2303 USB to Serial Bridge Controller" /software and drivers. There is support for all Windows OSes, 32 and 64-bit, Windows 7 included.
This same link could help Mac users. Click on "User Manual" for Linux users.
(The "PL-2303" reference is the hardware ID that is located in "Device properties/ Device ID" on Everest software).
Always use this software for locate drivers for your new hardware devices.
Update: The site is now down, but through google cache you can still reach the downloads. Direct links: google cache
