Question about Belkin Desktop Card Network Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless connection My belkin g+ wireless card stopped working. I tried reinstalling but then the pc didn't even recognise the hardware. I got a new card, uninstalled all the old stuff and reinstalled the new. The pc now recognises the hardware and the yellow light is on in the card but the card doesn't pick up the router as a wireless network. The router works fine when it's attached with a network cable. Help please!!!! Thanks Mel

Re: wireless connection

What router brand/model do you have. Is it set up to broadcast it's SSID? Has encryption been enabled on the router?

Have you used Device Manager to make sure the new wireless card is operating properly.

I hope you'll answer these questions and let me try to help before you rate this...

Try to restart the the Wireless Router if that doesn't work then go to:
Start-> Run-> CMD [Enter]
type in: netsh winsock reset [reset]
restart the pc... when it boots back up go back to CMD prompt and type in:
net start [enter]
this will start the net services
you may need to go type in Services.msc in cmd prompt and go all the way to bottom and enable Wireless Zero Configuration... If that doesnt work you may need to reinstall Drivers on room mates PC.

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:
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.

Belking wireless adapter install

when you are advised to connect the usb adapter, it will recognise it, then the usb host controller is installed to recognise the adapter,but it should continue to instal the driver and then recognise it as Belkin 54g, if not, then you need to keep the cd rom in and then force it to install the driver from your cd drive, but it may not be compatable with ME unles you have a windows 2000 driver.

When the installation is complete you should in any case have the belkin software icon on your desktop to set up the adapter, if not then the software has not installed fully.

It will also be listed in add/remove programmes if it's fully installed.

Wireless G network card

uninstall the driver and restart PC, the PC should autodetect the hardware, slap in the cd that came with it and reinstall drivers. If that fail open device manager to see if their is any conflicts. If not the card went bad and youl need to get a new one.

Worked fine now not at all

That was one of the flaws of Win Me!  I suggest you dump it!  It had other problems too, one being very unstable when adding or deleting certain software and hardware.
