You need to install the drivers for it which it should ask for when it detects a new device. Have you got the cd that goes with it?

If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.

  • Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:

  • The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.

    Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.

  • Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.

    Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.

    If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.

  • The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.

    There are two things to try:

    • Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.

    • Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.

My Belkin USB 10/100 Ethernet adapter is detecting as a buetooth device when I connect to my laptop... I am using Windows XP as an operating system. I guess WIDCOMM in windows is causing that...


Wireless Zero configuration is a utility that connects your computer to a wireless network.

If Wireless Zero configuration is not enabled, the following message will appear: "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection."

Note: If you have the Belkin utility installed, you'll need to change the Program Choice in the Options tab so the Windows XP Utility is selected.

Setup steps:

  1. Go to the XP Start menu and select Control Panel.

I've spoken to who provides my wireless network and they insist that my Dell laptop is the problem for not being able to connect. I really dont know much about what they were saying but what they had...


If your using a router to get wireless from a DSL connection and your laptop isn't detecting the signal it is most commonly the wireless card in the computer, hence their response. If you can access the router to check what channel it is transmitting on you may be able to change that to resolve the issue. On my cisco router it transmitted on channel 6 by default and my laptops wouldn't detect it, I changed it to transmit on channel 5 and the laptops work fine. I assume they checked if your router was compatible with your computer so I won't go into the type G wireless vs Type B or N wireless. The uninstall/install process they recommended is not hard and shouldn't hurt anything if you do that. On Vista Open Control Panel->System->Device Manager then go down the list of devices to Network Devices and select your wireless adapter and right click, from that drop menu select uninstall and close everything and reboot the computer. When the computer starts up again it will automatically detect the wireless card and reinstall the drivers from the windows system copy. Make sure the wireless device is actually manually turned on before doing any of these steps. Once the device is installed again you should be able to detect the wireless signal from the router they supplied. If not there is one more place to look in the router itself unless you are familiar with router settings I don't recommend you do these though. If you still don't detect the router signal call your supplier back and have them go through the router connections with you and when they say it's your computer you can tell them it works fine with others and you removed and installed the device as they advised and the fault is in their router.

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.

Hello mccree08,

The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)

•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager

•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'

The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.

Can't get adapter to work


Hi,

Please, plug the network component to a USB port of your computer. Wait a few seconds to see if it detects it. If it does detect it, you will see in the Network section an icon for the wireless card. To make it easier to troubleshoot, here's a link to Microsoft website.
