Question about Belkin (F5D7011) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

2 Answers

Can't connect to the internet

The list of things I have attempted to get this computer to connect to the internet is extensive. It was given to me by a friend and it had AOL on it, which I promptly removed. It won't connect neither through wireless on the card or through the on board network adapter. I've tried connecting both through my router and then by directly connecting the computer to the DSL modem using the appropriate network cables. I've uninstalled and reinstalled TCP/IP, reset the TCP/IP stack, checked for possible proxy settings, made sure the AOL service was disabled and that wireless zero was enabled, I've let the Belkin software try to connect it and I've also let windows try to connect it, I've tried both with the Windows firewall enabled and disabled. I'm out of ideas. Help.

    Wow. So I think I have a bigger problem than I may have imagined...

    When I ran ipconfig /all I got the following IP address for the ethernet adapter: fe80::202:3fff:fe74:3025%4.

    I've never even seen anything like that before...

    I tried this as you asked me to, with the laptop connected (wired) directly to the router. I then took the router out of the picture entirely and just connected the laptop to the DSL modem as I normally would if we only had one computer in the house. I got the same result both times.

    I know that the router is good. I have a desktop and an additional laptop that connect to the internet just fine through it.

    The plot thickens...

    Thank you for your responses. I hope someone can help. :)

    I have also tried connecting it through the PCMCIA slot with a Belkin wireless card. No dice. This makes me think it's not a hardware issue.

    I did try repairing the connection for the ethernet adapter previously. Then I tried deleting it entirely and creating a new one. It is set to obtain an IP automatically.

    I don't have a firewire port showing in my Network Connections.

    I will go ahead and try disabling the ethernet adapter and then report back. :0)

    Partial success! I disabled/reenabled the network adapter and we are now able to connect while wired up to the router! Thank you!

    Still no success connecting through the Belkin Wireless Card that goes into the PCMCIA slot, but I'm pretty sure my family will just be happy that the computer can now access the internet.

    Many, many thanks to all.

    Connect the laptop to the router via wire (not wireless). Open a command prompt (Start->Run, cmd ). In the dos box enter:
    ipconfig /all

    If the address is 169.x.y.z, you have a problem.

    Post the information and we'll help you out.

Good advice, but maybe go to control panel, network connections, highlight local area connection (left mouse click) then right mouse & select 'repair'. That does a whole heap of things as well as a reset. P.S. do you have the connection setup as DHCP.. Or obtain IP address automatically? I assume the other pc's in the house are.. That way, the router is meant to provide an IP address..

    Just a thought from another user on Fixya..



    you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.

    Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled.



    Try that, to get the wireless side working.. Might help. Obviously disconnect the wired side first, just for the test. Rgds,

I've never seen that, so I'd go so far as to say it's a hardware issue, ie, you have a bad nic card.

Try this, though: From device manager, with the laptop wired, disable the ethernet adapter. Then reenable it. See if that corrects it. Sometimes, all it needs is a reset (the port). I've seen that fix many a problem. Also, if you have a firewire port showing up in Network Connections (IEEE 1394), disable that (again, in Network Connections). If none of that works, I'd try buying a PCMCIA NIC or maybe a usb one.

Lg 50pm4700 will not connet to the internet


I had a similiar problem and found a solution! :) im passing on my joy to you. Try getting a USB extension or just wrapping foil around the Dongle. It seems that the dongle or the TV causes interference of some sort to cause the tv to drop the internet. ON my tv it would say connected to the net sometimes but as soon as id try netcast it would drop. As soon as i got the extension it went away. At least try the foil thing. Wrap it like a Dog cone for injured dogs.

Donot use an extension cable or a USB hub. Connect the wireless adapter directly to the computer. Try with different USB ports on the computer. Try updating the latest driver. Check it with a different computer so that we can isolate if it is the issue with the computer.

chances are you're problem is not your router or you ISP (internet Service Provider).. that would be pretty unlikely and weird.

if your computer shuts down when you attempt to connect wirelessly it is possibly that you have driver problem with your wireless network adapter. I would suggest for your to update the driver's from the manufacturer's website by going here (make sure you know your hardware revision)

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems


I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

D-Link DWL-G510 Connected but no packets


Hi,
According to the user guide for your motorola broadband modem it doesnot support wirless capability , ie it can only hook your computers to the interenet using the wire. refer the following link

http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SB5101/downloads/SB5101_UG_EN.pdf

What is required , is additional pair of hardware ie.
1. Wireless Router(eg linksys or netgear)
or
2.Router/broadband modem(given by the ISP)

Your connection would then be configured through the wireless router , that would give you wireless capability.

Refer to the following link , it gives you the a step by step guide to setting up the wireless connection .
