Try the laptop and the PCMCIA cards at an internet cafe. IF they don't work there as well, I recommend you throw the cards away or give them away and buy your self some new ones.

Does this devise pick up internet on laptop or desk top either one


Hi cfisherman8

This is a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Card.

It slots into the large PCMCIA Port that almost all larger laptops and notebooks have.

This device can also work in a Desktop computer but requires a PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter to be installed in the Desktop Computer for it to slot into. There are different types of Desktop PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter. Some types internally connect a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Cardbus to an empty Motherboard PCI Slot and others externally connect a PCMCIA Cardbus to the computer via its USB or Serial Ports. See here for examples:

http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Port-CardBus-PCMCIA-Adapter/dp/B000BMMN7K/ref=sr_1_21?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320335&sr=1-21

http://www.amazon.com/Startech-Cardbus-Adapter-Transfer-115-2kbps/dp/B004WGR6YG/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1316320098&sr=8-12

http://www.amazon.com/Quatech-PCD-X-U142--CardBus-adapter/dp/B001BEF3YC/ref=sr_1_28?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316321566&sr=1-28

Other alternative internal wireless networking devices for Desktop computers include a PCI Wireless Network Card. See example here:

http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Wireless-802-11n-Network-Adapter/dp/B002DYIZ2Q/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1316320278&sr=1-14


Once installed, it is able to send and receive data wirelessly between the computer and any Wireless Router/Modem to which the computer is configured to connect.

This device is most easily used with a Laptop. An easier solution for a Desktop PC would be a USB Wireless Adapter.

I hope this helps.

.uki have got a belkin


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Bought a G Wireless USB Network Adapter, on install when it asks to plug it in the computer cant find it, then I get a error message that I need to instal the network card


To configure the wireless router, it needs to be connected to a computer with a LAN cable. Therefore the computer needs a LAN card and the LAN card driver installed and if you need to connect a laptop or computer to the router by wireless then the laptop or computer needs a wireless card plus the wireless card driver.
To configure the wireless router and wireless cards in the laptop or computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a Belkin Wireless Notebook Network Card (F5D7010). The problem is that I only have USB Ports on my computer. Is there an adapter of any sort that will work with this card??? Thanks in advance.


YES. There are some PCMCIA readers that connect to your PC/Laptop USB. Here is one on eBay:

BELKIN WIRELESS G+ NOTEBOOK CARD


Yes and No.
It will connect to a router using B (11Mbps) or G (54Mbps) mode.
It will not connect to a router using the new N (108Mbps) mode.

The best way is to set your router to "Mixed Mode", so it adjusts to the used network cards.

Belkin Wireless connection speed at 11mpbs. Why not 54mpbs?


this is from the d-link support page:
"Question :Why can't I get the advertised speed and performance when in Ad-Hoc mode? 
  
Answer : 

This FAQ applies to 802.11b, 802.11g, and Super G™products.

D-Link wireless products follow the IEEE 802.11 standards. The802.11b and 802.11g standards specify that Ad-Hoc mode only needsto support up to 11Mbps. For best results, use an access point orwireless router and set your adapters to Infrastructure (station)mode."

Need Ethernet port on PC


If you have a wireless router then the ethernet cable will go between the modem and the router. Then you need a wireless LAN card to connect the PC to the router

What model router and modem do you have?

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.

Pci bwi 715 not working


All you should need to do is to Discover available wireless networks on the machine with the Blitzz card in (it should be able to discover the belkin Wireless router)

you should have a wireless utility program that came with the card that lets you alter the configuration so that you can connect to this different router.
