Question about Belkin Wireless-G Plus MIMO Router with USB Adapter and Geek Squad Installation

Bellkin G+ Mimo usb adapter - invisible

I have used a belkin usb adapter before on my HP computer and it worked fine for about 3 months. Then it broke.
Got it exchanged for the above model, would not connect - installs ok although everytime I plug it into the usb port it gives it a new number i.e usb connection 19 now. it will not find my router. it does find a neighbours connection but not mine. I have contacted the belkin helpdesk who weren't very helpful, and said to reset the router, which i did with no effect. there are other users conected into our router fine, even one using the belkin wireless G adapter.
What should i do next?

    The SSID was not being broadcast so now I can find it, I've been able to connect.



    However, even though when connected to the router, neither of 2 HP machines can use the adapter to access the internet, both using Windows XP Pro, but my laptop using XP home accesses the internet using it with no problems.



    Any ideas?

Use this tip as a check list.
Check if you set the correct SSID + Key and "connect if router is not broadcasting" set in your adapter configuration.
If you do not know Key you need to reset from Router.
If you missed SSID you can check on any PC when connected to WLAN and retrieve the name of NON BROADCASTED network

    If other HP machines are showing your SSID but they do not browse Internet the only area to check is the access list in your router.
    You do not disclose your Router model and I cannot be more helpful.
    Generally you have to connect to your router (using Lan Cable) login as Admin and check into advanced wireless setting (or security settings) see if access list is enable.
    Edit this list and you should see Mac addresses of all enabled devices.
    You can either disable the list for a test OR add your WLAN adapter MAC address.
    Sorry for the late answer let me know if problem is still pending

Can a belkin network card f5d7050 work with a belkin g plus mimo router


As MIMO is compatible with all wireless g products there shouldn't be any issues at all....
so some questions:
  • do you have other wireless devices working with the router? if so can you duplicate their settings for this n/w card?
  • have you set security on the router?
  • what are you using to connect to the network the windows interface (assuming it's PC not MAC based) or the Belkin one?
i have a linksys g n/w card attached to my MIMO router & it's fine so I'm sure that this is solvable!

Check for the wireless encryption settings associated with this. If you're trying to join a network with "Open" settings to a encrypted network it won't work very well.

You will need to connect your laptop to an ethernet connection to get on the internet so that you can download the drivers for your MIMO USB ADAPTER. You can also download the file on another computer and use a flash drive or burn a CD to transfer the files to your laptop.

Connecting to secure network


when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
