    Okay ive now been told, by belkin, that I need to convert my network key into a WEP network key... cos it doesn't have the right amount of digits or something. Im using a Netgear modem, so does that mean I can only talk to Netgear about this?

  • Jaydeepiglet Sep 10, 2007

    See the thing is, I have no idea how to do any of that.. thanks though.

What has happened is that the proxy server on your last internet connection is in need of being redetected. you will need to delete any old cookies and internet files, also check in the internet explorer tools>internet options>connection, that the the the last provider you used is trying to connect instead of sky, so either select never dial a connection or sky as your default connection. Also check that in the properties of the belkin adapter that obtain an ip address automatically is checked in the TCP/IP properties. You may also need to refresh your browser a few times before you get on the net. A good temp file and reg cleaner, is Ccleaner, it's free and available at the link below

    i didnt realise, as you didn't mention you had secured the network, as i would make sure i can connect to the net first although by default sky secures the router, but what they may mean is sky use WPA PSK encryption and your adapter may be set at WEP, therefore not allowing the correct passkey to be typed.

    If you can change tp the WPA security and also you will need to try both shared and open network to see which one is used by the router, again these options are in the belkin adapter software.

    there should be a belkin icon on your desktop, open it up then look for the name of your wireless connection, sky????, then just click each tab and you will see the settings, it's very simple to do

Belkin wireless g dektop card part no f5d7000ak is not working in windows 7 64bit

If you are using an older Belkin Networking product, you may not have support for Windows 7 with your current software.
Software updates will be posted as they become available. Please check back if your product is not currently supported.
Some updates may still be in the process of going through Microsoft's official certification program. Although they have been thoroughly tested, they may present a warning message when the driver is being installed. These drivers will install on 32 bit operating systems but not on 64 bit systems, which is the normal and expected behavior.
Even though your product may currently not be supported under Windows 7, it may very well work on it; in the majority of cases, software and drivers for Windows Vista will work on Windows 7 without a problem.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Yes and No.
It will connect to a router using B (11Mbps) or G (54Mbps) mode.
It will not connect to a router using the new N (108Mbps) mode.

The best way is to set your router to "Mixed Mode", so it adjusts to the used network cards.

Belkin wireless router installation with a laptop that has an internal modem

Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?

Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
