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

1 Answer

Wirless Network keeps failing

I recently bought a new laptop, HP - Compaq 8510p. This laptop has the wireless connection built in, WLAN and Bluetooth. I have configures my Belking wireless router as a WEP 64 bit security interface. The laptop has no problem seeing the router through the SSID I configured. I configured the Wireless network connection on my laptop to the WEP code and at times I get a connection. However, my laptop does not indicate so "Limited connection or no connectivity" but I am able to access the internet. However, this is short lived as it loses the connection eventhough my signal strength is excellent. One more bit of info is that I can connect to the LAN cable on the same internet provider and get a good, constant connection. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is there something that I should be configuring on my laptop for the wireless connection ?

    Disabled the WEP security and connection worked fine. Need to still investigate WEP or WAP security issue with router.

It is possible that you need to further fine tune your WEP configuration. To verify if it's the security lock, try running the laptop and the router without the WEP security (disabled) and determine if you still get the "Limited connection or no connectivity".

If yes, you have just eliminated that area and could consider other possibilities, otherwise you then have to concentrate on the WEP security.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on any developments (or lack thereof) or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Another thing you can try is to set the laptop to use static IP address and network configurations.

    Hi again,

    Glad that you can now connect and have confirmed that it is the WEP security that causes the "Limited connection or no connectivity".

    It is a known compromise that when security is enabled, the speed suffers.

    If your purpose in using the WEP is to prevent others from connecting, may I suggest MAC filter instead (if your router has this feature). You forego the WEP but still maintain some security.

    Another thing that has been found effective is to use Static IP Address assigned to your Belkin F5D7050 WiFi connection and not the DHCP handed out address. This would mean moving from "Obtain an IP Address automatically" to "Use the following IP Address" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the WiFi Networking Properties. The configuration must be appropriate to the routers.

    Sorry the "...Belkin F5D7050..." should read "...HP - Compaq 8510p built-in WLAN..."

Why has screen gone black on compaq 8510p. Can vaguely see print

Sounds like either your backlight bulb has failed or the inverter that powers the bulb has failed or a connection has come loose from the inverter to the LCD panel. Unless the laptop was "Jarred" or dropped, I doubt the bulb has burned out....most likely if no damage occued, the inverter has failed or there is a loose connection with the inverter.

Compaq evo n800 laptop built-in wireless internet

right click "my computer", left click properties, select "Device Manager" Expand anything to do with "Network Adapters" and make sure there are no problems / exclamation marks / unknown devices.
If there are, look for your wireless driver on..
depending on your model. if this doesn't work go to and download the driver then install it.
If you can't detect any wireless networks, make sure your wireless card is activated - I believe this involves holding down FN (bottom left of keyboard) while then pressing F2 key at top. after this try try to search for wirless access points points.

Good Luck,
