Have you tried to reinstall the wireless card drivers? Sometimes when the install updates you need to update your hardware drivers to keep things running smoothly.

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.

Inspiron 5160 is probably at least 3 or 4 years old. If it is running slow, (and maybe fan is running all the time and fast) you might need to check if the heat sink/fan assembly is in need of cleaning. You have to remove this assy from the laptop, and remove all the accumulated dust and gunk from the INSIDE of the copper fins. Inside meaning remove the fan from the assembly and with a fine brush, GENTLY remove the gunk from the fins, or with the fan removed, try canned air.

Hey there,

The wireless driver might only work on Vista, try the IT Administrators - Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows* XP and Windows Vista*from here

First uninstall the one you have though..
