How do I install my Belkin F5D7051 wireless adapter without the installation CD?


To install the adapter you will definately need a disc. because the adapter will not work without the Drivers. Drivers are very important for the adapter. One more thing that if you have WIN XP or VISTA then you don't need the set up utility but still you need the drivers for the adapter.
If you do not have the disc. You can download the drivers from the manufacturer's web site and install the drivers for your adapter.

Usb network adapter


you network adapter either is not installed or the OS recognized it as a "generic adapter" and apply an appropriate driver for the said hardware. this is good but sometimes the windows just apply the nearest driver close to what is you driver...

if you network adapter is brand new chances are that you still got the disk came with the package and just uninstall the window's xp driver and reinstall it. if you dont have the disk just look at the website of the said adapter.

solution:
if you are using windows xp
1. click control panel
2. click the icon "system"
3. at the hardware tab click the "device manager" and look for the network adapter branch
4. if you can see a network adapter installed right click it and click uninstall...
5. reboot and let them window automatically search and reinstall your adapter.
6. if you the windows don't automatically install it, go back to control panel and click "add hardware" and install the hardware manually

hope this help...
