Re: i have a wireless notebook adapter for my dell...
Make sure that you insert the card in before booting up the computer. When Windows 2000 was created PCMCIA cards weren't hot swappable. If that doesn't do the trick, check linksys.com for updated Windows 2000 dirvers.
You can still update to Windows XP as well. Some computer stores still carry it. Wireless networking is managed much better under that operating system.

Open up PC, Plug it wireless network into a PCI slot, turn on PC, the network device will be recognized and ask for drivers, you insert the CD/DVD that came with it, or use the software you downloaded from Belkin web site and install the WiFi card.. Run the Belkin software and it is installed. reboot PC, put case side back on.
Instead of disabling all other adapters, I would suggest you try to unistall their drivers. Think carefully first though, because you want to make sure that you have the drivers JUST IN CASE before you delete any, you may have a conflict due to multiple wireless adapter drivers on the pc.
If it cannot find any networks, check to see if there is a wireless on/off switch on the computer - look carefully some are well hidden. The switch turns the antenna on and off but windows still detects the network adapter and thinks everything is ok.
Have you tried to reinstall the device driver? Then check the network settings and see if the device is loaded. If you still cannot get the device to work, unplug it and restart your computer. Once reloaded replug in your device and system will recognize the device and load the drivers if they are on system already, if not it will ask fir the driver cd to be loaded.
