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

Belkin wireless adapter

Having connection problems. We uninstalled and reinstalled our Belkin wireless adapter. It worked for a while, but then "new hardware found" popped up and the wizzard installed it again. This works for a short while, but pops up over and over "new hardware found". Is there an adapter problem, or do we have a virus?

    Hey Shugster- Enrich here. I don't think my Belkin wireless adapter problem is the wire. It still happens when I connect it directly to the tower.

    I'm having a nightmare with this thing. Sometimes the led does not flash and I can't connect to a network even though my computer has recognized its plugged in, or sometimes my computer says unrecognized hardware and nothing works. Its really inconsistant, I'm not sure if there is a problem with the adapter or my settings.

Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/ Wireless Adapter

I just noticed that it is a 802.11a/ . "a" wireless products do not work correctly and you need an "a" router to connect to. The "g" protocol is the most common and reliable.
If it is a new adapter, I would return it and get a 802.11 g adapter, not a USB.. they cost about $20.
