Question about Belkin (F5D72304F5D7000) Router
I just replaced my ancient Linksys wireless b router with a new faster Belkin g router.
My old desktop and my new netbook both pick up the faster g wireless fine. Both of those, plus my old Gateway M6124 XP laptop, also see its higher speed if they are plugged onto an ethernet cable. I love it.
One wireless problem - the Gateway laptop will not recognize the new wireless signal and cannot detect the wireless network.
It uses a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter with a BCMWL5.SYS driver from 2005, version 126.96.36.199. I jiggered all its adapter settings to no avail. Also the router settings seem clean - no encryption, no protection mode, etc.
I cannot find a newer BCMWL5.SYS driver version for Gateway. Uniblue's driver scan does not flag it as being out of date.
What am I missing here?
Thanks for any help. I ran a cable over to the laptop and my wife wants it gone !
