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

Won't install drivers on Vista

Hi
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:
http://www.belkin.com/support/article/Default.aspx?lid=en&pid=F5D8011&aid=6112&scid=0
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.

Thanks,

Dlight

    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.

  • Dlightswitch Aug 24, 2008

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

  • Dlightswitch Aug 24, 2008

    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

The pc will not detect the wireless card. Already updated driver, BIOS, and tried a new card. I did update from Vista to 7 Professional.


Did the wireless card ever work? If it did work I would check to see if there's a physical switch on the laptop. Try switching it off then on. I would also try a different driver. Sometimes I've used an older or newer driver to get a wireless card to work. So if the driver that's installed is for Vista I would try obtaining one for Win 7. You could also try a wireless driver fro XP 64bit. I've found that some Manufacture's Web sites have several drivers listed for "network card" you could have a installed a "network card driver from HP's site but it might not be the correct version or manufacturer. From HP's site I don't see Win7 listed as an option. So you could have an incompatible driver installed. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&product=3376893

One other item to check. If you had Vista 32bit installed originally then went to Win 7 64bit you could try the Vista 64bit driver.

If all else fails you could purchase a USB wireless device to make your laptop wireless again. I picked up a Trendent

Let me know if you have any other questions?

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

Wireless button


The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.

Not finding my wireless card


You don't have the right driver, finding the right wireless driver can be a pain. Open the panel on the bottom and get the make and model of the wireless card. Then go to Lenovo's support site and read what card each driver covers, find the driver for that specific card and install it. If it still doesn't work, go to driverguide.com and search for the driver by the wireless card make and model. At this point, if the card still isn't working, then you may need a new card.

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...

Wireless adapter in Acer 5610-4610 is gone suddenly


Few ideas here, but obviously these are tricky questions.

Uninstall all software related to the wireless NIC, and then uninstall the hardware in device manager. Shut the machine down. Turn the machine over and remove all the little doors and look to see if the wireless NIC is an add-in card you can access. If it is, remove the retaining screw and remove it. Reboot machine, let it boot up, log in, and then shut down again. Reinstall the wireless card and close everything up again. When you reboot, you *should* get the new hardware found message, if you do, install the with the latest drivers and then reboot, and then check to see if the device is working properly in device manager (no warning messages). If it does not recognize the hardware, check in device manager if it has somehow put it on the unknown device list. If it has, try installing the latest drivers manually for the device by using properties tabs on unknown device in device manager.

If the problem is that the devices won't recognise and install their own drivers, you have a different problem which HP or whomever should solve.

Note, too, that if the laptop included custom control software for wireless connectivity (Intel, I am looking in your direction), the card may not be recognized without it, so install that software again, too.

Hope this helps...
