SOURCE: belkin network adapter driver problem

this driver is constant problem, the best way to do it is to remove the driver and the adapter. re install the software, then connect the adapter to a different usb port and try again, or, connect the adapter and then when it asks for a driver point it to your cdrom where you have the driver disc and force it to install from there, once installed, open up the belkin manager console and dissable it and allow windows wireless zero configuration to run the adapter it is more stable

How can i pick up my Belkin N wireless usb adapter with my kindle fire?

The adapter you are using is a wireless receiver. You can not connect to this adapter from another device, only connect from it to a wireless Access Point or Router.

There are ways to share the Internet connection of your computer with other devices, but you have to have your computer connected to the Access Point either via cable or have a second network card. More info here and here.

Your kindle should nevertheless be able to connect directly to your wireless network. If your computer can, your kindle should too. Is there any wireless security enabled on your network? Is Wifi turned on?

I have Belkin's Play Wireless USB Adapter f7d4101 v1. The installation process (on a desktop computer - windows 7) works correctly, at the end I am asked to reboot my computer. But when my computer...

Try to check if the adapter has been disabled in the network sttings.Go to network and sharing center, on the left side of window select change adapter settings, now on the new screen if the network adapter that you are trying to use has a red x on the icon, click on it and above it some options should appear, select enable this device. Also you need to check in your device manager to be sure that your power settings are correct for all USB ports. In device manager (find it in the control panel) find the universal serial bus controller option and click on the arrow to expand selection. Go to each line that says USB root hub and right click , select properties, select the power management tab at the top and make sure that the box is unchecked that says allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. You will need to do this for every line that is titled USB host controller. I hope this was helpful.

I have a modem hooked up to one computer in my room, but my mom wants internet on her computer in her room, so I went to WalMart and they gave me this and told me it would work. However I really doubted...

Hi,

You have mentioned that you have a modem connected to one computer already, if you want to access another computer from a different computer through a wireless adapter then you need a wireless router or access point to transmit the wireless signal, because the Belkin N150 Wireless USB adapter which you have bought is just a "receiver".

If you have router already connected to your modem then please give the brand name of the router you have

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

Belking wireless adapter install

when you are advised to connect the usb adapter, it will recognise it, then the usb host controller is installed to recognise the adapter,but it should continue to instal the driver and then recognise it as Belkin 54g, if not, then you need to keep the cd rom in and then force it to install the driver from your cd drive, but it may not be compatable with ME unles you have a windows 2000 driver.

When the installation is complete you should in any case have the belkin software icon on your desktop to set up the adapter, if not then the software has not installed fully.

It will also be listed in add/remove programmes if it's fully installed.

Connecting to secure network

when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
