Restored factory settings on pc & cant re -instal belkin adaptor
Belkin9050 worked fine but now new hardware not found when wireless adaptor plugged in usb port. I can get wired connection. I had tried using install disk first off but that did not work nor did belkin's suggestion of downloading driver from their site to desktop. Laptop recognises adaptor so it is working & other hardware is found using usb ports on pc so usb ports are not the problem. I have vista on pc and is 32bit. laptop is xp.
Re: restored factory settings on pc & cant re -instal...
The Belkin site has very specific instructions for installing this adapter in a pc with Vista. These instructions are at: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9050&aid=6112&scid=0 I would first unistall any Belkin Software that has already been installed, shut down the system completely and then restart. After you have fully restarted the system then follow the Belkin Site instructions EXACTLY. Any variation is apt to mean an unsuccessful install. Good Luck and have patience.

when you insert your adapter in the computer do you get found new hardware balloon if not then try with a different computer if still doesn`t then your adapter has gone faulty.if you do get the balloon then i would suggest you to install the adapter with latest driver.take care.
Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer?
Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections".
If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it.
If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again.
let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
Two possibilites here
1. the driver CD is corrupt , though belkin is a plug n play adapter, there is no need to install the cd
2. Since you getting an excalmation suggests , windows recoganises the new hardware but fails to install.
The best option is either change the manufacturer of the adapter or reinstall windows , it should fix your problem
Make sure it is not in the windows START UP folder so that it will not use the belkin configuration. Check that software tool's prefrences by selecting 'use windows wireless configuration' as well, from within the windows wireless configuration tool icon on the systemtray, you have that option to 'always use windows'
To enter the services to set the wireless zero configuration cick on the start menu then on RUN and type services.msc and click ok - now look for the wireless zero configuration and doubleclick on it. Change the setting to AUTOMATIC and if it is not already started, start this and click OK
In case you are unsure where the windows start up folder is found, click on the start menu then on ALL PROGRAMS and you should see START UP. You will find that wireless utility device which should be removed (right click and delete)
Uninstall the old installation of the driver and the restart the pc. disconnect the belkin and install the software of the belkin.After installation insert the belkin device and let the system detect it. if this act thesame then maybe you update the driver of your belkin here you can download: http://www.belkin.com/support/
The Belkin N1 Wireless USB 2.0 Network Adapter might be choosy with what motherboard it is attached to.
Pls refer to this similar problem > http://www.fixya.com/support/t201253-not_identify_belkin_n1_wireless_usb
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things stand or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway.
toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete.
If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.
