My wireless Belkin card no longer works, even though the instilation is working fine but when i try to connect everything, it won't let me. Also, on the back of my card, the paper is sort of peeling off. Is that the problem? Do i need a new card?

Re: Belkin Card stop working
Try Uninstalling all Network Adapters from your device manager... rebooting and reinstalling..then reset your router.. and renew your DHCP
>>> Start, type Run in the search box...... type CMD.. then type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew

You most likely have a problem with your videocard(Graphics Card or GPU). The rainbows that you see are called artifacts and these generally mean that your graphics card is either overheating or broken.
Artifacts can also be caused by CPU problems but wouldn't let the laptop run for any significant ammount of time.
Did you tried cable connection to your router to see if this works?
which windows its runing on?
If wireless connection drops its not all the time your laptop issue... its router transmitted channel conflict with laptop wireless card channel....
You might fix this by changing the router wireless setting by changing the transmission channel on it.and then re connect the laptop or it may auto reconnect with it and hopefully signal will not drop.
one is network card for cable connection to internet
one is wireless card for wireless connection to your router(with internet connection)
I will write more after I get your reply. As I am in the middle of my own issue now... ;)
I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing. dell inspiron 1525 battery
It sounds as though your wireless card is starting to go out due to heat. If you have another laptop or a friends laptop to see if they can connect ok without experiencing the same problem you will eliminate the router as the cause. But more than likely you will need to replace the wifi card.
Go into Network connections in control panel and right click on the wireless network icon, then click on properties. In here change the settings so that Windows manages your wirless settings rather than the Belkin software, I find this normally works a lot better and more reliable. You should then be able to double click the wireless icon (Not the Belkin Icon) in the bottom corner of your screen and connect to your wireless network. Rgds, Geoff
Usually this is a driver problem, in which you have the wrong driver trying to configure the wireless. Some wireless drivers and cards are so similar that they will install and either show and network but won't connect, or show the card working but won't see the network. Take the cover off the bottom and get the make and model of the card, then find the right driver either at Dell's support site or driverguide.com. Dell uses several different wireless cards and checking the make and model of the card is the only sure way of knowing you have the correct driver.
