Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter

Open Question

I have been using this Belkin Wireless Adapter for nearly 2 weeks. All of a sudden, last night the adapter stopped working. Now when I plug the adapter into the computer I get two icons in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. One says, "Unknown Device" and the other says, "USB Device Not Recognized". My Laptop computer continues to connect to the Internet. I used my roommate's adapter on my desktop, and it worked fine. Thus, I can be certain there is something wrong with the Belkin adapter. Please help me troubleshoot this! I visited some online forums and was unable to fix the issue myself.

SOURCE: how to set up network on belkin G+ wireless usb adapter

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?

This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.

something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.

If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01

or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22

Hi Emma,
Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
Please let me know how you make out.
thanks

SOURCE: Hi, My Wireless adapter -Belkin 802.11b is stopped

First check whether the adapter is working or not?
In the device manager you are able to detect the adapter, that is a good sign.
When you go to the adapters properties, does it say working properly,
If it is , then you just need to connect to the wireless network and the light will lit up

Belkin usb used for ages worked great for wireless internet suddenly stopped working completely after power cut any ideas or has it just reached end of shelf life?

Replace the power supply. These are not to hard to get from goodwill for a buck. Bring your old one so you can find one with the correct power output. (5 volts dc at 2 amps usually)
