ok, good and bad news

first good, i was right, your card is based on Ralink RT2870 chip.

you can get the driver here
USB (RT2870 /RT2770 /RT307X /RT2070 /RT3572)

problem is that it seems Belkin and Ralink broke their relationship. only version 3 of your USB adapter is based on Ralink, all future versions are based on Realtek chip.

This will take a bit of work, but you will have to mod the ralink driver and add your Belink device ID into it, which is: USB/VID_050D&PID_8053

that driver supports few manufactures by default

"Gigabyte GN-WB30N 802.11n USB WLAN Card" is probably one of the closest matches to your card.

you could try and force install your card as "Gigabyte GN-WB30N 802.11n USB WLAN Card"
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
