Question about Belkin (F5D7001) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Can not change the wireless channel

I have a belkin f5d7001 that has been working to my router on channel 11 fine for 2 years but there are now 3 other near by routers on channel 11 so I decided to move to channel 6. The Belkin utility now does not see my router and insisits on connecting to 1 of the other routers on channel 11 dispite the "Connect to non-perferred" being un-checked. I have downloaded the lastest Belkin driver/utility software.

Running NetStumbler, with the same card/driver sees all the routers including mine on channel 6 and 2 laptops in the house also have no problems.

    Nice try but .....
    I have tried starting Wireless Zero Configuration service but the Belkin Utility stops me from using it (Belkin knows I want to use there great software) From the Belkin site there should be a check box on the utility to enable Wireless Zero Configuration but I can't find it (from elsewher it *may* only be available the 1st time you run the utility and removing and reinstalling it doesn't help as the settings are still in the registry) BTW I'm using WinXP Home and, as you know, not everything you can do in XP Pro is available in home.

A very good question!
I'd love to answer this. Belkin utility at times has some bugs. As you said you have downloaded the latest version of drivers and utility. Latest drivers are good but utility will not be of much use, I, as a technician would highly recommend that you use Wireless Zero Configuration in case of Win XP or WLAN Auto-config in case in case of Win Vista or Win 7. But if you have older versions of Windows, older than Win XP, only then utility has to be used. Enable WZC and WLAN A-C in Microsoft Services(Local) page.

Start > Run > services.msc > Ok > Services (Local) > Start the service.

At worst instances, if you are forced to use the utility, remove all SSID (wireless network names) from My Connections. Note: Remove all of them completely.

Also, i would recommend that you configure your wireless mode to be "802.11g only" on the router as F5D7001 is a 802.11g standard PCI card, and also turn ON the wireless PROTECTED MODE on the router. This will enhance the performance of your wireless devices in cases of heavy wireless traffic.

This is sure to work! Again, thanks for such a question.

Testimonial: "Everything you said was correct, but in the end I still can't get anything other than channel 11 to work. So is either driver (unlikely) or hardware."

    In the utility itself, under the tab OPTIONS, you have that option of "Use standard Win XP utility instead" under program choice. Try with that or the last option would be uncheck the Belkin name in msconfig > Start up. Note: Be careful with the System Configuration Utility.
    This will not boot the Belkin utility on the computer. But the drivers will remain. You can now use the WZC.

    Also, try the configuration on the router as i suggested, it ll also add on to the existing performance.
