How to add an exception to your Windows Firewall - XP, Vista and 7

Windows Firewall protects your computer by blocking communications (i.e., bugs and malicious software) attempting to connect to your computer. Sometimes, Windows Firewall will block a program that you use from connecting to the Internet. If you are experiencing this problem, but you are still able to browse the Web (demonstrating that it's not a general problem with your Internet connection), you can add a Windows Firewall exception for the program that's having problems. This will allow you to use that program without Windows Firewall blocking it.

Setup Steps - Windows XP

  1. Click Start. Click All Programs and find the program that you want to add an exception for. Then right-click the program and click Properties.

Wireless Zero configuration is a utility that connects your computer to a wireless network.

If Wireless Zero configuration is not enabled, the following message will appear: "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection."

Note: If you have the Belkin utility installed, you'll need to change the Program Choice in the Options tab so the Windows XP Utility is selected.

Have you got two wireless icons down on the right by the clock. As it may be using the belkin wireless manager to control the device rather than the windows version.

Windows xp identifies Belkin f5d5010 Network card as a generic ethernet controller and is unable to find a driver to install properly this adapter


If you find that you can not connect to a wireless base station (such as Apple's Airport) because of issues with the configuration software provided by your wireless adapter's manufacturer. You may wish to uninstall that software (but keep the drivers) and use XP's native support for wireless networking.
In order to do this you may need to turn on XP's wireless zero configuration.
Start -> Run

Type in services.msc
zwc001.gif Click the OK button, which will bring up the following dialogue.
zwc002.gif You may want to maximise the screen. Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and select it.
zwc003.gif You now have the option to Start the service.
You also need to change the Startup Type from Manual to Automatic
Action -> Properties
zwc004.gif Click OK.
You can now use XP to manage your wireless connection.

You need to give more information to give specific advice, e.g. model of your laptop, WLAN adapter (if external), and operating system in use.
Some (very) old laptops do not support WPA or only a subset of encryption methods. Try to remove the WLAN from the list of known networks (Windows XP: properties of the WLAN adapter) and try to reconnect. If you are asked for the network passphrase, enter your WPA password.

There are a number of locations from which you can download the drivers, even though the belkin site is not available these days.
I can probably supply the Win XP version of the drivers by email if needed. Let me know, and I'll put something together.
Hope this helps.
