Question about Belkin 802.11n Wireless Notebook Card, N1, Special Buy - Save $15 (F5D8011TT)

Won't install drivers on Vista

When I plug in my N1 Wireless notebook card, my laptop finds the new hardward, tries to install it and then fails. I read on the Belkin site that to install it on Vista I have to do what it says in this guide:
Although I can't find the software package that it talks about, and I think this is what I need to get it to work.

If anyone can find it, or find an alternative solution, I would be really grateful.

    No that isn't it, that's just the drivers page, which gives me exactly the same thing that I have on the CD, which doesn't work. Yes I did try it to make sure.

    Okay, now the driver has been installed for the card, but when I click on the Belkin Wireless Networking Utility program, nothing comes up..

    Thanks, they were already ticked so I didnt need to restart. I am now connected to my wireless router through the network card. I am getting a higher mbps rate than before, even though the network still shows up as Radio Type: 802.11g in the wireless networks list. Is this a problem?

    make sure you install the software first, then connect the adapter, or when the hardware is found you must be prompted for the driver and point it to the cd drive to install or the folder you saved the downloaded driver to.

    you can use the windows wireless zero configuration instead of belkin utility, see if your network card is showing in control panel>network connections, if so right click, click on TCP/IP line, properties and ensure obtain an ip address is ticked, click apply and than restart the pc

Do you have an installation disk that came with it for the driver? Maybe not. It can be plug and play. Okay. Plug it to a USB port. Wait a few seconds to see if it is detected by Vista (you might have a small window down-right of your screen saying new material found). If so, the wizard will help you to install it and to configure it. Otherwise, let me know at what step you are stopped.

Can't install drivers

This means you are using Vista x64, the 64-bit version.
It accepts only drivers which are signed by microsoft.
Make sure you are downloading 64-bit drivers instead of 32-bit.
According to this article, Belkin supports the signed drivers.
If there are no 64-bit drivers they will come available soon...

Can not identify Belkin N1 Wireless USB Adaptor on PC

Hi, A couple of things: 1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)? 2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?; 3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0? 4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port? Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.
