    Try through device manager.

    Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc -> OK

    Then go to network controllers.

    Your Belkin router should be listed there. If it is double click and go to drivers.

    If available click on "roll back driver" just to be sure it not changed. However i'm pretty sure that will be greyed out.

    However click on update driver and see if windows will automatically scan for it and install if.

    If not you will have to look on the router itself and then google it
