Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter
My boyfriend has a desktop computer with a Belkin USB Wireless Adapter. I don't know for sure which model number, but it looks like this one.
He has been able to connect to the wireless network before. This weekend, he wasn't able to get online. I went through the network connection setup steps in the software for the adapter, and he was online again.
Then yesterday, his computer said that it couldn't detect an adapter, though it was plugged in. I wasn't there, so he was asking for help over the phone. I really have no experience with wireless adapters.
He unplugged the adapter, plugged it back in, and it was detected. It wanted him to go through the installation CD again. But it had an unknown problem during the installation and quit installing.
I don't know what kind of router his roommates have - they keep it in the attic. Is there a reason why it works fine sometimes and not other times? Are we making some kind of fundamental error? Is this a bad adapter? Is it not compatible with the router?
You mean that the adapter is not being recognised by the pc as a usb device, this adapter works better on a usb2.0 port, not as well on a usb1.0 port, depending on how old your pc is, try other ports., but you must uninstal the belkin driver from add/remove programmes, then install the driver again and inset adapter in a different usb port than before.
the adapter should then be found and click install driver automatically, but leave the cd in the drive as it normally picks the driver up again from the disk on it's own even after installing it yourself.
When installed i would recommend using windows wireless zero configuration (windows own software) instead of the belkin software, to do this right click on the network icon and select enable WZC (windows zero config), as this is a more stable programme for connecting your adapter signal to the router
Personally Belkin is poor in my opinion, netgear has better software and drivers, but it's belkin you have, so follow the above and it should be ok.
