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

2 Answers

Connection problems when switching on my computer my wireless network connection (numbered 4) will try to connect to the internet and fail - if i disconnect the adapter then reconnect using the same port it will *jump* to wireless network connection number 3 & then seem to work fine, however this is not always the case and in some cases i have to reboot my pc for it to find connection 3 - please note that the number 3 connection is using the same connection as the number 4 wireless network connection i've tried using other ports (up to 8 different network connections) & 3 always seems to be the one that works best - this port is at the back of the pc - is there anyway i can reset my pc to remove the previous wireless network connections 1-8 & get my pc to focus solely on 3?

    even though i've disabled network adapters #2 - 9 (with the exclusion of #3), I can't delete them, the system won't allow me - further when I switch on my PC #4 connection is still often the default even if it doesn't connect - I have to unplug the adapter and reattach to get #3, which then regularly loses & refreshes its wireless connection - not ideal!!!

Hi,
Your query "is there anyway...remove...wireless network connections 1-8 ...solely on 3?"

In your Device Manager, delete all instances of the wireless network connection except # 3.

However in WinXP, the default setting of the Device Manager is to  hide certain devices (like printers, non plug & play devices and removable devices not currently installed/connected).

In your Device Manager, pls click on "View", check "Show Hidden Devices." Thus enabled, all hidden devices (whether multiple or not) will now be displayed.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Could you please try booting to Safe Mode (F8). When in Safe Mode (and the Belkin USB not connected) go to your Device Manager and uninstall all instances of the wireless network adapter and all under the USB Serial Bus controllers. Reboot still without the Belkin. Allow Windows to auto-detect & auto-install the USBs. Shutdown. Attach the Belkin, reboot. Allow Windows to auto-detect & auto-install the Belkin.

    If this still doesn't work, your last bet would be to try use an externally powered USB Hub.

    If still a no go, perhaps you may opt for a replacement with another brand/model.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Ive seen videos online about pluging your xbox into your lap top. the problem is that my internet is secured and when i plug my xbox into my laptop, and i try connecting with my xbox it says connection...


(Hopefully you are running Windows 7 for this advice. Let me know otherwise.)
1. You should be able to click Start, type "view network connections", hit enter. 2. Right-click your wireless connection and hit 'Properties'. 3. Click the sharing tab and then 'Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection'. 4. Click OK and try again.
You may need to also plug in your computers DNS settings into your XBOX (360?).
Repeat 1. 2. Right-click and hit 'Status', then 'Details'. 3. Notice the IPv4 DNS Server. 4. Go to your system / Network / Wired on the XBOX and try typing in your Laptops DNS numbers (ex. 192.168.1.254). Unless they changed it on the new Blade system so that you HAVE to have and IP, subnet, and gateway, in which case, take note of those three numbers on your machine and plug those into the XBOX settings too (except if your computer shows 192.168.1.150, set your XBOX to something like 192.168.1.155, everything else the same).

Cant access internet through wireless network.


How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

1. If the physical wireless switch is turned ON then use the Windows Mobility Center to turn on the WLAN adapter.

2. Configure the WLAN autoconfig service to start automatically. Open Services window to make this setting.

3. Reinstall the original wireless adapter driver. Uninstall the driver from device manager under the network adaptor category then restart the Computer before reinstalling.

4. If available, download and install a wireless adapter driver update from the Computer manufacturer support site.

5. If possible test, another computer on the wireless network.

6. Repair the wireless connection.

a. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
b. In the Control Panel window, click Network and Internet .
c. In the Network and Internet window, click Network and Sharing Center .
d. In the Network and Sharing Center window, under Tasks , click Diagnose and Repair .

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.
