You need to configure the Belkin router with a SSID and WAP or WEP encryption, Then install the Linksys adapter driver in the computer and then configure the Linksys adapter with the Belkin router settings (ie. the SSID and encryption) before the Linksys can communicate eith the Belkin router.

    Make sure the Linksys adapter driver matches the XP or Vista version of Windows that is installed on your computer.

Can a belkin network card f5d7050 work with a belkin g plus mimo router


As MIMO is compatible with all wireless g products there shouldn't be any issues at all....
so some questions:
  • do you have other wireless devices working with the router? if so can you duplicate their settings for this n/w card?
  • have you set security on the router?
  • what are you using to connect to the network the windows interface (assuming it's PC not MAC based) or the Belkin one?
i have a linksys g n/w card attached to my MIMO router & it's fine so I'm sure that this is solvable!

I keep losing the connection to my Linksys N router...why??


1.Primarily, if you use a N standard wireless router, you must go in for the same N standard adapter, to get full efficiency. You didn't mention the model no.
2.If you have any other wireless computer in your house, check with that if it also has the same issues. Try checking with new and old wireless devices.
3.If finally, you conclude that its only this Belkin adapter that is responsible for intermittent connection, then:
3a. Uninstall the Belkin adapter's utility and drivers from control panel(Add/Remove programs)
3b.Go to http://en-us-belkin.com/support and download the latest drivers for your model.
3c. Unplug the adapter and run the downloaded setup file. (Setup will walk you through from here)

But i could have helped you better if you had mentioned the model or part number along with the version of it.
Anyway, this would certainly work.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

How to change (or update) wap to wpa encryption on ASUS WIFI-B Network Adapter


With this Asus wireless B adapter even the new driver dont support WPA wireless security , because right now sicne WPA is a much newer and higher type of wireless encryption only some wireless B adapter supports that and sorry to say this wireless adapter that you have don't support it even with the latest driver so it will be better to get a new wireless G adapter that supports WPA 100% , you can get the wireless adapter from Asus or from other wireless device manufacturer like Linksys, Netgear. Dlink and Belkin....

hello!

-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.
