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?

Re: connection problems

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.

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?

What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Wont connect to internet

Secure is not there to re-assure you, its telling you the network is password protected & you need the password to connect. The wireless key will appear on the staus screen of your router. Connect using a wire, goto the router status screen & write down the wireless key, try to re-connect wirelessly.

My Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945BG Network Connection , has a limited connectivity to the internet

Sometime when you switch on the computer and the wireless router (if you turn it off after using it) the computer does not get an IP address from the router in time when the computer finishes booting up. This problem may not occur all the time.
When you get the limited connectivity error, then right click on the wireless connection icon on the Task Bar and click REPAIR. This will get the wireless router to issue the wireless card an IP address.
Then you will have proper Internet connection.

Wireless Connection

Move your computer to different postions and see if the frequency of the problem changes. Take your computer to a wireless internet cafe and see what happens as you move around the cafe. If your computer works at the cafe, your wireless router may be defective.

Linksys adapter won't properly connect

Usually the limited or no connectivity is displayed under the following circumstances:

  1. The router and wireless adapter are too far apart.
  2. The network key (ex. wep, wpa, etc) your inputting on the computer is incorrect.
  3. The computer is obtaining the wrong IP address.
Judging by the fact that you already have had a computer connecting to the wireless network , I would assume your problem is going to be related to number 3. To make sure, I would first make sure that the wireless router is giving off a higher signal strength then 1-2 bars in the wireless network box in XP.

To confirm that it is correctly receiving an IP address I would change the connection to DHCP, which means the router assigns an IP address to the computer automaticlly. Here aree the instructions to do so....
  • Double click on the icon for the wireless network on the bottom right corner
  • When the box opens , click "Properties"
  • On the next box , double click on the line that says "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
  • Next click on the radio button that says "Obtain an IP address automaticlly (DHCP)"
  • Then click on the radio button that says "Obtain DNS server address automaticlly"
  • Now try connecting to the wireless network, that shoud fix you up.
Also if that does not work , you can try this YouTube video which is great refrence for fixing a connection. Best of luck!
