300 Mbps wireless adapter does not work on my XP desktop system.

Installation instructions cannot be followed exactly because the software does not auto Run, so the dialogue panel is not presented to Install the Driver. The instructions say to go to the CD and in the Driver directory run the Setup program. There is no Driver directory at the root level of the CD. If I go the WINXP directory and run Setup, it appears to Install successfully. However, the Utility does not recognize the adapter. The System Device Manager shows the adapter having an improper configuration on the driver. I cannot reinstall the driver in any manner that is successful. It's got to go back!! :-(

SOURCE: "WPC54G is not installed"

Hai rob if ur device manager says error code 10then it seems the drivers are not installed properly for the adapter, try to update drivers, go to device manager, right clich adapter and click update driver and try to update driver, in some case ur pc may require win 2000 cd to.. check for the instructions while installing it , that would surely fix your problem..

It sounds like you may have a band PCMCIA slot. Have you attempted to use any other expansion cards in it to test this theory?

SOURCE: Not recognizing driver

These belkin wireless cards are version dependant, on your card it shows you what version it is, use the driver for your version.
It tells you this on the support page on belkin.com

SOURCE: XP does not recognize the Intel wireless network adapter

Dell has a known problem with driver conflic the best remedy is to right click on my computer click on property open hardware uninstall the driver there and restart the conputer but first make sure you download the driver from intel and burn them on a cd then when you reinstall you won't have to try to figure out if everything is downloading also in security make sure that you allow this site so that all the drivers download.
but most of the time if these driver are on a card that is micrsoft certified it will be in the driver file and will reload automaticly when you restart the computer after uninstalling and it should elimenate the driver conflic.

SOURCE: Reformatted Windows XP does not recognize D-Link wireless adapter

I ran recently across the same problem and solved it by changing the PCI slot where the card was installed... it makes little sense to humans, but apparently make a world of difference to the PC hardware ;)
Assuming you had installed unsuccessfully both Card and Driver you have them (like I did) both on your PC. In such ase, the solution for me was as follows: 1) Turn Off PC 2) Remove the card from the current PCI slot 3) Turn PC back On and remove driver 4) Turn Off PC, remove power cord and wait a minute or two 5) Do not install card yet 6) Turn PC back On and install the driver 7) Turn Off PC remove power cord 8) Install the Wireless card in a different PCI slot THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! Can't be the same slot as where it was installed before!!! Note: If you have none available swap PCI slots or remove a PCI card to free up a different slot for the wireless card... remove a card you need the least and in its place install the Dlink Card. You may want to hold off on installing in a second step the card you have just removed, to be on the "safest" side.
9) Once the card is installed, Power up your PC 10) Once windows will be back up and running the hardware wizard should kick in and tell you that new hardware was found. 11) Follow the on-screen instructions 12) click "Continue Anyway" when XP will warn you that the driver hasn't been signed 13) Installation should be completed after you click Finish at the end of the New Hardware Wizard process 14) Simply go to your wireless networks and make sure all works in order
(I know that this process may sound a bit "anal" in some steps, but I was no longer willing to deal with any possibility of problems of any kind as I was ready to rip that wireless card to shreds!)
I hope this will help those who struggled with reviving an old PC to give to a friend!

Restored factory settings on pc & cant re -instal belkin adaptor


The Belkin site has very specific instructions for installing this adapter in a pc with Vista. These instructions are at: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9050&aid=6112&scid=0
I would first unistall any Belkin Software that has already been installed, shut down the system completely and then restart. After you have fully restarted the system then follow the Belkin Site instructions EXACTLY. Any variation is apt to mean an unsuccessful install. Good Luck and have patience.

Failed to install


Belkin drivers are a bit of a pain, uninstall the drivers again and remove the usb adapter, and follow exactly as per instructions, normally driver first, but ignore the pop up about the driver not being a signed windows if it does, just click install anyway. toward the end of the installation you should be prompted to connect the usb adapter, the hardware should be found and then the installation should complete. If driver installed ok but the adapter cant find the the driver plug it into a different usb port and again the found hardware should pop up then install driver popup should show and you should select install automatically.
