Question about Belkin Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My new laptop (Vista) recognises my desktop (Windows XP) but my desktop does not recognise my laptop. My desktop does have the Belkin adaptor icon but when I go into ''see other computors on my network'' it tells me I have no authority to see them. Please help.

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I'm not sure where to start typing the command; do I include net use: or do I start the command from z:?

    Sorry if I sound stupid but I'm sure you appreciate we'e all learners at first.

    Thanks again

Possibly a workgroup issue - check that they are both the same or a sharing issue. Try using a net use: z: //(laptop ip address)/C command from the command prompt on the xp machine

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

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: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9050&aid=6112&scid=0
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.

Since you updated the computer to Vista, the adapter will no longer work because it uses XP drivers. You need to uninstall the adapter completely and then reinstall it using the correct Vista drivers. The drivers are available on the Belkin Support site.
