Question about Belkin (F5D7000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Disconnects while working.

I installed Belkin 802.11g/b WA on desktop PC to share internet connection between PC and laptop. It works for some time (sometimes 4-5 hours even), then it disconnects. I need to turn the connection off (in Network Connections) and on again and it works again for few hours.

    Yup, I have the same problem and nope it's not the signal strength, people ALWAYS say things like that when they have no idea what the problem actually is. Something is not right with this stupid adapter seriously, I thought it might have been the power savings functions (I am running Vista) but nope...even on Maximum performance I have the same problem.

    I too have this problem, it seems to work fine for a half hour or so then starts disconnecting and reconnecting... then wont connect at all.

    I have tried changing channels, on both router and adapter, however since I re-installed the software for the adapter, I dont get to choose the channel on the adapter side.

    The router is less than 6 feet away from the pc and the signal strength is always very good.

It may be as simple as the wireless connection signal strength, as doors, solid walls or any solid object that is in it's line will cause the signal to be very low, and at that point it will disconect from the internet as it is unable to send packets of information to your wireless card from the router. You can try your router in another telephone point that is nearer the pc to see if the connection drops, or use a different channel number which can be changed in the routers settings and the wireless cards properties as interference from other electrical appliances on the MHZ level can cause signal loss. Laptops tend to suffer less with the signal loss because they normally have a signal booster in the screen of the laptop within the wireless receiver ariel.

The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.

Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

Hi, let me know the operating system of your laptop or desktop that you're using (it's very
important for compatibility) and also the service pack that's running your PC. If you don't
install the adapter properly, the problem will occur repeatedly. Remember, running the
driver without plug in USB.

Belkin products are notorious for breaking down at a high rate. If you wanted to rule out your computer as the culprit, you could install the belking adapter on your laptop (disable the built-in one) and see if it still works. I would also suggest going here:

and typing in your product model # and downloading the latest firmware/software for it. As always, restart your computer.

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router

Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
