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

1 Answer

Drivers won't install

I have tried to install my Belkin usb network adapter, but it just does'nt work. When I click the icon, it just flashes one. When I go to the device manager there is an exclaimation mark telling me no drivers are installed. Everytime I try to re-install the drivers they just cant be found from the cd, even when I steer it straight to the driver folder. Ive tried everything. Im running XP.
Thanks.

    Hi. Yes this is what I thought, the only problem is that the pc which is a bit old was given to me minus the installation discs. Do you think I should just buy a new operating system, I can get one on ebay for about £58.00?

    Regards Roy.

Two possibilites here
1. the driver CD is corrupt , though belkin is a plug n play adapter, there is no need to install the cd
2. Since you getting an excalmation suggests , windows recoganises the new hardware but fails to install.
The best option is either change the manufacturer of the adapter or reinstall windows , it should fix your problem

    Before you buy or reinstall windows foryour computer , just make sure you download and burn all the other drivers needed for the machine from the maufacturer website. Like sound drivers, video and network.

Hi,

You cannot install this adapter in a Win 7 computer because the drivers are not compatible with Win 7.
So far Belkin haven't updated the drivers for win 7 OS. The latest drivers for this adapter is compatible only with

" Windows 98SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit "

Click here to see the belkin compatible drivers in the website.

With Regards,

Wireless adapter used to work, then stopped, then worked again, now can't be detected...


you mean that the adapter is not being recognised by the pc as a usb device, this adapter works better on a usb2.0 port, not as well on a usb1.0 port, depending on how old your pc is, try other ports., but you must uninstal the belkin driver from add/remove programmes, then install the driver again and inset adapter in a different usb port than before.

the adapter should then be found and click install driver automatically, but leave the cd in the drive as it normally picks the driver up again from the disk on it's own even after installing it yourself.

When installed i would recommend using windows wireless zero configuration (windows own software) instead of the belkin software, to do this right click on the network icon and select enable WZC (windows zero config), as this is a more stable programme for connecting your adapter signal to the router

Personally Belkin is poor in my opinion, netgear has better software and drivers, but it's belkin you have, so follow the above and it should be ok.

Lose wireless internet when printer is on.


the only thing that connects the printer to the internet fault is the fact that the printer and your belkin are both usb connected. If you are using a laptop then it could be a usb power problem and the motherboard is disconnecting the belkin adapter for some reason, the only one i can think of is a power problem. The same can apply to a desktop pc if there is a usb problem Firsly i assume you are using the belkin software to connect the usb adapter to the router, so on your taskbar on the right there is normally the little aerial type icon for the belkin adapter and a little pc screen showing the connection also, if you right click on one of theses icons you should get a line reading 'enable windows WZC', if you do get the option enable it and try using the windows connection software instead of the belkin as it may stop the disconnecting. Also ensure that when you installed the software to your printer your firewall and antivirus was dissabled as certain elements to the driver may not have been installed. Lasly, try using different usb ports if you have spare ones, with both the printer and the adapter as sometimes the chip on the board may be instructing the usb ports incorrectly as to which is required first, as windows asks for certain things eg input/output ports to be used first,in other words the IRQ (interupt request) may be causing the problem.

Utility not displaying to select network


I don't know what it is with Belkin and their drivers, I have the same problem with their USB adapter. It usually takes a couple of goes to get their utility to work. When you are installing it make sure Windows is installing it from your cd and not the generic one. If you cannot uninstall it; it has not installed itself correctly. If you are unable to remove it, search the Belkin folder and manually delete, then download this free excellent programme to remove all traces of Belkin then try again. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ If Windows 2000 driver doesn't work for you try Windows XP driver.
