Question about Belkin (F5D7010) 802.11a, 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Purchased a used laptop and had to clean drive and reload operating system (Windows 2000 Professional). Before reload this card and it's utitlities worked perfectly. After reload downloaded drivers from Belkin website and installed. The installation didn't go well and contacted Belkin directly and received a CD with the drivers which I installed and that went well. The card works just fine. I can hook up to my neighbor's unsecured network no problem the system does this all by itself when I boot up. I cannot bring up the screen that will allow me to select the network I want to hook up to (like my own secured network). When I click on it the screen flashes for a moment and then disappears. It shows in task manager that it is running and so on, just no way to access it. Have already talked to Belkin 3rd level support and they are also stumped. It should also be noted that when trying to uninstall a C++ run time error occurs. Any ideas?
I don't know what it is with Belkin and their drivers, I have the same problem with their USB adapter. It usually takes a couple of goes to get their utility to work. When you are installing it make sure Windows is installing it from your cd and not the generic one. If you cannot uninstall it; it has not installed itself correctly. If you are unable to remove it, search the Belkin folder and manually delete, then download this free excellent programme to remove all traces of Belkin then try again. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ If Windows 2000 driver doesn't work for you try Windows XP driver.
