Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Computer crashed I tried installing this, I thought it finished installing. But the internet didn't work so I decided to reboot the computer. When I rebooted it a screen came up that said windows has been prevented from loading so that no more damage is caused to the operating system. It told me to restart in safe mode and remove any programs that were recently installed. I unplugged the adapter and restarted but it won't let me get past the F8/diagnostics screen. It won't even let me go into safe mode. I can select it but then it goes back to the error screen.

Re: computer crashed

By unplugging the adapter has not solved your problem because the driver is the cause of the crash. Try booting in safe mode again, but this time select last known good configuration, or boot in VGA mode(when in VGA mode uninstall the driver in add/remove programmes), if you get into last known good configuration your pc is working as normal. If none of the above work you may have to use your XP cd to do a system repair, if so post back

You likely need to reinstall the driver. when Windows is trying to install it, it seems to be crashing.

Try starting up in SAFE MODE

tap the F8 key as you are booting the computer to bring up a menu with a safe mode option.

after you start up in safe mode, try plugging in the card. See if the driver loads then. If it does, I would try maybe UNINSTALLING the driver from the device manager. Then reboot to standard Windows, and see if you can get it to install that way.

If that doesn't work, see if there is an updated driver for your version of Windows on their website, and try to run the driver install before plugging the card in again. Hopefully getting a fresh driver in there can prevent it from crashing.

If the card NEVER could be that it conflicts with another kind of driver on your machine. You may want to consider getting a different brand or taking it to your local tech to see if they can help

Vista not recognizing driver from usb g220

Try turning off the Vista security feature known as User Account Control (UAC).

Go into Control Panel/Users. Select your own account then click the link on the left "turn UAC on or off". Disable UAC then click Apply/OK.

Now try installing the driver again. If you still get the "digital signature" warning choose the option to "install anyway".

The driver should then load. You would be best advised to re-enable UAC after you have finished loading the driver.

Hi - Well, I do have one thing for you look for -
what type of network access are you trying to set up?

I'd just reinstall the software again (don't worry about the uninstall yet) and say okay if it asks if it can overwrite the files.

With the type of card you are mentioning, you are probably going to have to set it up to access as WEP (instead of WPA's). That was what was wrong when we installed one of these two weeks ago. I was trying to connect to the WPA-personal that I'd set up the router to and already had one computer set up for. I had to change the entire network setup (including router) to WEP to accommodate the new connection! (And WEP is slower than WPA's.)

I hope that is the only problem for you.
