Belkin G USB Wireless Adapter Problems

Q: Belkin G USB Wireless Adapter Problems

Bought this adapter a few hours ago, and after attempting to install it, have decided to console trusty techspot for advice. Basically, I followed the "Easy 2-Step Guide" that Belkin provide, to its entirety, and the result was that when I opened up the Belkin wireless utility it couldn't find a signal, or even a network.

So, first thing's first: move closer to the router. So I did...to about 1.5m away, and still nothing. Hmm. Then, after much playing around with useless settings in the utility I decided to call Belkin support. The guy spent 20 minutes getting me to do this and that, and ended up saying that I had to change a channel or something on my BT router. Does anyone know if this could be the answer to getting connected to the network, and if so, how do I change the channel thingy?

As always, any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I recently installed Windows Vista home premium x64 on my Athlon 64 system and
plugged in my Belkin F5D7050 wireless G usb adapter, only to find out that,
of course the drivers didn't work. Went online, using my laptop, downloaded the latest and greatest drivers and I installed the driver and the device still doesn't work.
For instance, when I set it to search for wireless networks nearby (which it
should find mine), the activity light on it doesn't even flash once. It
hasn't flashed ever since I plugged it in after installing Vista. So my
question is, is there a driver that would work with my adapter, and if there
isn't could you recommend a low cost wireless usb adapter that would work
with Vista home premium x64? Thank you for your help, sword182.

Hello everyone,
I have just built a new PC as of last night and I am having problems connecting to the internet. I bought a Belkin N150 F9L1001 USB adapter for the computer so I could access the internet but, sadly, it is not working for me. The problem is that every couple of minutes while I am connected, it will show my network as not having any internet access. When this shows, I troubleshoot the program and windows shows that it had reset the network adapter (because "the default gateway is not available) and then I'm connected to the internet again. I've been all over the forums here and have tried to fix the problem to the best of my abilities. I have even tried using the adapter in a different computer, which worked, so I know we can rule that out. Anyways, any help provided would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Firstly Hello

Right, to the point, i run a Belking wireless G gaming adapter through which i use my xbox 360. My NAT type is moderate and i don't know how to change it!

I have changed all the settings on the router itself, following advise from forums etc. and i know that all works, as i have connected my xbox to my laptop via network sharing and that all works. So i know its a problem with the adapter. I really dont know what to do, ive searched the internet forums and no one seems to have the same problem. Has anyone got any ideas?
 

A:Problems with Belkin Wireless G Gaming adapter

If it is like my wireless D-Link gaming adapter, you connect it to the PC via the LAN port and access the software built into the gaming adapter by typing its IP address into the browser address box. Once you access it, you can make any changes. You will need instructions as to what IP address to use. Go to Belkin's website for specific info.

I'm actually using my adapter not for a gaming console but for a PC.

Hi guys I am Andrew and I recently installed the Beta Release of Windows 7 well the issue I am having is that when ever I run the CD it says that it is not compatible, well I am using an F5D7050 adapter and a 1444 router. So is there anyway to bypass it to make it think it is Vista? It is compatible with Vista, Xp, and previous versions. Also after upgrading is there a way to downgrade back to XP which is what I am running, Windows XP Pro SP3.

Hello, this problem has really confuzzled me. I have just bought a new wireless USB adapter, ran it through the setup entered the password etc. Fine. Nicely connects to the router everytime (well ok most the time). But it cant seem to find the internet, which i know is there because my house mate has no problems with it. I've read quite a few complaints about this adapter. Is it worth just returning it and trying a different one? Or does anyone have any ideas?

It finds the submask, ip address, sets a channel automatically. One thing i noticed though is it doesnt create a gateway. (i asume cos i cant find the net). I did have internet before but they were wired. I've since then disabled the normal ethernet adapter and disabled the old connections. So i dont think theres anything conflicting.

Please help?!!
Thank you in advance i really appreciate it.
 

A:Belkin Wireless adapter - can connect to the adapter, but not the internet!!!

I'm going to guess that the IP address that it finds is 169.254.x.x and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, right? It's really NOT connecting to the router, which is why you don't have a Default Gateway or DNS servers.

You don't have to disable the wired interface to connect wirelessly, there's no conflict.

I'd suggest you first disable the encryption and see if it connects. If it does, then you need to make sure you enter matching passwords for the encryption on each end. Note that for WEP you should ONLY use the HEX password, do not use the passcode option.
Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2.

I have been experiencing wireless wifi connection problems with my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. I am running xppro (I went from vista to xp pro..took a long time as I am slow) Anyway, I read that you can add another wireless network card as a work around, in the event that the internal wireless card breaks/dies.

I bought a BelkinWirelss G USB network adapter- F5D7050 and tried to install it on this laptop. I was able to install it on my IBM T23 and Gateway laptop. I had to disable the radio on the gateway before it worked. The IBM is old and has no built in wireless card. ON my HP pavilion dv6000, I slid the wireless button to disable and also went into device manager and disable there too.

For some reason after loading the Belkin in, it does not find any wireless networks. I called Belkin and spoke with their help desk but they were not helpful. My question, short of disabling my HP wireless card, do I have to remove the actual software (uninstall broadcom ) so the computer will look only at the belkin software?

My HP laptop, warrantied expired 2 months ago. Any help would be appreciated..

Hi! Just wondering if you guys can help me out...
I just got a new pc with Vista Home Premium x64. Here are the specs
Athlon 64 X2 6000+
4GB RAM
512MB GeForce 8600GTS

It works fine except when I have tried to install my Belkin USB wireless adapter. I went to Belkins site and it told me to download the Ralink drivers, which I did. Nothing. Vista tells me that the device is working properly, but the light on the adapter is not lighting up, and Windows does not pick up any networks at all. I tried the PC with a second, identical adapter to see if it was the device causing the problem, but I have gotten the same response, which lead me to think it was an issue with Vista.

If anyone could provide me with some advice I would be very grateful.

A:Belkin wireless g adapter problem

Which version do you have? Pull out the PCMICA card and it should tell you?

Ver. 5
Ver. 6

These two were more stable than prior versions.

I have had purchased 4 of the Ver. 5 never had a problem with them. I know one thing I did find out the other day is that, the cards can only handle low packets. If you do anything like high impact packeting for AV media streaming then you'll run into hipcups on the AV media content.

Otherwise for general data swapping and internet surfing they make and excellent choice.

Okay back to your problem, what I would do is this:

1. Hook the laptop up using wired ethernet cable and disable the wireless
2. See if you can get a connection directly to the Router
3. Open a DOS prompt and type: route print > c:\route print.txt
4. Under run type: notepad c:\route print.txt
5. See how the connection to your Router went when you use the Route Print
6. If all is a go!, Then enable the Wireless and wait for it to connect

In step 6 it should connect right away when you connect unless your not using the right key for WEP. I would recommend using WEP 128-bit A instead of HEX. Also change the key to something new in the Wireless Router. Once you are setup under Belkin Wireless Utility change it to allow XP Pro SP2 Wireless Management. To me this works much faster then what the 3rd Party Belkin offers.

Also make sure you update the firmware for the Belkin as it does change.

Hi everyone. Lately had a problem with the wireless signal dropping on my Belkin wireless adapter. It happened at anytime. After reading on the forums about changing channels I thought I would change the drivers first.
Looking on Belkin website and finding the drivers for Window 7, 32/64 bit, I found the ones I wanted (I think). Did a system restore then loaded the new ones in. The old ones if you want to call them that looked like they were uninstalled at the same time.
Lets see if this does the trick. I never fancied changing the channels cos I would have to do it on the laptop also and I have this uncanny knack of messing things up.
The advice I guess I am putting forward is to try to update drivers before doing anything else AND do a system restore point before you start, it only takes a minute.
Cheers everyone for all your good advice.

Hi,

I have recently set up a wireless network using the Belkin N Wireless router. The router's connection to the internet is fine, and all three of the laptops connected to the network are able to access the internet.

As my PC did not come with a wireless card, I am using the Belkin N Wireless adapter supplied with the router. After initially installing the provided software and plugging in the adapter, I could not find my home network using the Belkin Wireless Utility, I could only see several secure local networks (indicating that the adapter at least was working).

However, after uninstalling and reinstalling the software, Windows refuses to identify the adapter, with a system tray window stating that a device that I have plugged in has malfunctioned, and directing me to the USB root hub, which defines the adapter as an unknown device, furthermore the Belkin software now displays no connections whatsoever. In addition, the LED on the adapter is not on when it is plugged in.

I am running Windows XP SP2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I have trawled the internet and exhausted my own ideas as to what the problem could be. After emailing Belkin, I was twice sent an automated response telling me to disable WLANcfg.exe, although I can't find any such program in the system directory or elsewhere.
 

A:Belkin N Wireless Adapter not working

"... the LED on the adapter is not on when it is plugged in."

Assuming that's a power LED, that could be a dead adapter. Plug it into a USB in another computer and see if the power LED comes on.

I have Windows 10 and 7 on the same computer, as you could probably guess, I'm 'downgrading' from 10. I plug my wireless adapter into my computer running the brand new Windows 7 installation and it makes the 3-chime "dundundun" sound, which I think means there's an error. It shows up in the device manager under Other Devices as "802.11ac NIC" (or was it 802.11n?) with a /!\ on the icon. There's an ethernet listing right below it with the same icon. I've plugged it into all USB ports, 2.0 and 3.0. It's a Belkin F9L1108TG (F9L1108v1). I lost the CD that came with it and Realtek's website is down so I can't download drivers from them as I've read is necessary. Belkin's website does not supply the driver for this model. I don't have ethernet access to my router/modem from my computer (it's a desktop) so I can't run Windows Update or anything. I've downloaded multiple driver packages from third party websites on my W10 OS as a last resort, but they didn't work. I didn't have to go through this with my old W7 setup a long time ago.

Hi there

Been having some odd issues with my wireless adapter for a while. Every time I boot my computer or wake it from sleep, it doesn't recognise my Belkin wireless adapter. This is resolved quite simply by removing it and putting it back in. Bizarrely, if I take it out and put it back in immediately it doesn't work, I have to wait at least 5 or so seconds before putting it back in. It works perfectly well afterwards, I have no issues with it. I know it's a fault with the adapter as I have tried another adapter on this PC and it doesn't do the same thing. The only reason I use it is because the other one periodically seems to slow my connection to a crawl or give me limited connectivity on the WiFi, but that's another thread entirely! I figured this issue would be simpler to solve.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I just upgraded a computer with a fresh install of windows 7. Everything went pretty smooth. got all the hardware and peripherals working NP, untill it came to the Belkin F5D8053 n.
Win7 didnt recognize it straight off, so downloaded the latest Vista drivers from belkin website as there was no win7 support . After about 3 attempts i got it working by doing the install with troubleshoot compatibility and setting it Vista SP2. Was working ok all night even after a few reboots. Then got up the next day and booted up, and it just seemed to have died for no reason. I've been trying for 2 days to get it working again since, and i'm out of ideas.
I've tried re installing the drivers in various different ways, using all the different OS compat settings for XP and Vista. tried older drivers, even tried generic ones, and the ones that win7 installs automatically, tried different USB ports, Tried doing a System Restore to the point when it worked. After searching through forums i found a guy who said he got it working by installing a particular Ralink driver, tried that no luck. The little blue LED comes on when you boot up and win7 tries to connect with the wireless, then the light goes off straight away and the wireless icon in the tasktray turns into the network symbol with a red cross on it and says there's no network present. The driver appears to be installed ok if you look in devices. I not long discovered If you go to the adapter settings on the left in Network and Sharing wind... Read more

A:Belkin F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter Problem

Here is a similar problem resolved by the person when QNA was running, but unfortunately it may be of no use to you, as it sounds as though you have already tried everything :

belkin F5D8053 wireless usb adapter disconnects in windows 7
here's the Answer (since I can't answer my own question, nor can I answer anyone else who asked this exact same question, as their questions are closed)
Here's what I did, it may or may not work for you.
Download the older Belkin Driver from their website 2.0.0.4:from here article
Uninstall whatever driver you have installed now from Add/Remove Programs
Once that is done, find the file you downloaded, right click on it and go to Properties.
Put a check mark in 'Run as Administrator' and change it to run in compatibility mode for Vista. (If Vista does work, retry all this with XP Svc Pack 2) Vista worked for me.
Now run the file.It should install and let you use your adapter.
Mine used to disconnect me about every 5-10 minutes and give an error that no drivers were installed. I would have to unplug and reinsert the usb adapter and it'd work again.
After doing this procedure, it's been up and running for about 2 days now with no disconnects!

I bought this yesterday and have still not managed to make it work, i'm on a laptop running windows 2000, it's a Dell Inspirion 800 (or something like that) and it's about five years old, i got it from my mums boyfriend so any other information is unbeknownest to me.
I have installed everything from the CD that came with it and plugged it in, all that happens is it flashes and doesn't connect, when i open the utility it shows the me the My Computer -!> Router -!> Internet and won't connect and doesn't even find my router even though the router can see it (apparently, thats just what i've been told).
I have tried changing the options but the Advanced Options won't open at all and neither will the router options.
When i tried the connectivity test I get something like the first four passing and anything beyond WAN just failing, i would be more specific but i can't get at it right now.
I know i should have looked first but i have just searched google and seen some pretty negative reviews on Belkin products.
I can't afford another one and won't be able to take it back so any help would be sooooo appreciated!
By the way, I connect to a Netgear router (can't remember the model number), before this i had a D-Link which worked perfectly well but he end of the USB broke of so it won't work anymore
Well as i said any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello all,

I bought a Belkin N 600 wireless USB adapter about two weeks ago, and yesterday it stopped working. I received a pop-up message saying the device had malfunctioned, and in the device manager it displayed error code 43. The device showed up as "unknown device" under the USB tab, rather than under the network adapters tab.

This is what I have already tried:
Reinstalled the driver from the CD
Reinstalled the driver from Belkin's website
Reinstalled the USB drivers
Restored my system to before I initially installed the driver
Ran troubleshooter
Spent an hour on the phone with Belkin tech support
Became frustrated

Any help would be very much apppreciated.

Thank you!

A:Error Code 43 Belkin Wireless Adapter

Don't know much about it myself, but this article:

WindowsAnswers.net - How to Fix Code 43 Error

Seems to indicate that it is most likely a driver problem, as your previous actions agree with.

The only item in the short list of actions suggested that I don't see in your post, is the one about making it the default device. If that doesn't solve the problem, I would return the device and find one that does work.

Okay so this is really screwed up. I had my Belgin 54g Wireless USB Adapter plugged into my USB port and everything was working, and then I left my computer on and went to sleep. Now, sometime when I was sleeping (***??) my computer decided it no longer wanted to recognize the USB adapter, and tell me it's not plugged in.

Of course I tried restarting, plugging it out and back in, and when I tried reinstalling the hardware, it said "The device is installed, but may not be working properly. The device cannot start. (10)"


So I don't know what to do right now... Please help! :D I can't stay on my sister's computer forever.

I recently bought a Belkin wireless G USB adapter F5D7050. I installed the software for it as indicated on my PC with XP

I can see it connects and see all the connetions through the wireless connection Icon (windows).

But to control the settings of the adapter, like setting up the WEP/WPA the software does not let me.
Actually nothing can be set on the software. The window just opens and you can wander through the tabs but nothing is displayed.

Has anyone seen something similar. Is it a setting in XP?

Thanks in advance.

I had one that would not work till I selected my wireless connection icon properties and unticked 'Let windows set up my wireless network settings', so forcing the belkin to be the only setup utility. Just a thought.

OK. I believed the hype, waited to buy a new computer until 7 came out. Been doing this since before there even WAS Windows, and it does it to me every time. Everything was supposed to work that worked with Vista, which was supposed to run everything that ran on XP, etc. - I got the computer, a Compaq desktop, got a Linksys wireless adapter to go with it. Wouldn't install. Wouldn't even recognize the dang thing was plugged in. Called Linksys, talked to some woman in Indonesia who told me there was no driver for W7 yet. Went back to BestBuy where I got the adapter, thinking they could help. Seems their geeks aren't any geekier than I am. Got a refund, bought a Belkin G family. At least the computer recognized that the Belkin is plugged in, and it knows there is a signal, but it refuses to connect. That's weird. Good signal, knows it is a Motorola adapter, but will NOT connect! Re-installed it in compatibility mode. It just laughs at me. Seriously, can I go back to DOS? Barring that, is there anything else I can do besides wait for an adapter to ship with a driver that works on 7?

A:Driver for Linksys and Belkin Wireless Adapter?

I was having issues also with Belkin's crap on my wife's pc. I could get it to work if I had the pc wired to ethernet and then installed the software. It would fail to load and then pop up a window asking to run with recommended settings. It wouldn't do this if the ethernet was unplugged. It would run in compatability mode XP and then it would work. As soon as the pc booted and I connected to a wireless network it would BSOD me within a minute or two like clockwork. I finally found a wireless adapter that does work with W7 and it works like a charm.

This is where I bought it. There is a review that says it doesn't work in W7.

Welcome to the Seven forums.

On the laptop, find the folder in the applicable program files area
Belkin\USB F5D7050\Wireless Utility\Win7_32 (probably Win7_64 for you)

Double click on InstallDriver.exe and see if that works for you.

If that fails, you can contact Belkin directly:

Help please! I have a Linksys Wireless Router set up on my desktop and have been able to network my husband's laptop without any problems. Now we have decided to add my son's desktop to the network. I purchased and installed the Belkin USB network adapter but cannot get the two computers to recognize each other. The desktop with the router has XP Home and my son's is running Windows 98. What do I need to do to get this darn network to work so he can access the internet and the printer?

A:Wireless USB Adapter Issue - Aztech and Belkin

I just tested installing a Belkin F5D8055 Wireless USB Network adapter on the RTM version of Win7. I got the drivers from the Belkin site as a selfextracting EXE. First time I ran the exe it said I was not running Vista and closed the setup. I then did the fallowing steps and it is now working fine for me.

1. Downloaded selfextracting EXE from Belkin Web site. Download the Vista version of the driver.
2. Right click on the file and choose Properties.
3. Click on the Compatibility tab at the top.
4. Check the compatibility box and choose "Windows Vista".
5. Check the "Run this program as an administrator" box.
6. Click ok and try running the EXE again.

When I did that it ran without errors and forced one reboot. Life is Good.
Thx. Dougsh....

Hello, I have a F5D8055v2 Belkin Wireless N+ USB Wireless Network Adapter which im having problems with in windows 7 64-bit. I have tried the following steps in order to try to make this adapter work

1) Downloaded and installed the latest drivers
2) Run the disc which came with the adapter in vista compatibility mode and normally.
3) Installed the drivers from the disc directly from the windows driver install wizard from the device manager.
4) Just connect the adapter and let windows install the drivers without a disc or program but this failed and said "Drivers could not be sucessfully installed"

All these steps have been attempted and none of these work. The problem I have been getting is that the drivers would install all fine and windows would detect the wireless adapter and the adapter would light up but the problem is when I go to enable it in the adapter settings I click enable and it says "Enabled" but it doesn't change it to enabled, it stays at disabled so there is no way i can get the adapter to work.

I have tried 3 other wireless adapters like the Netgear WN111, some dual rangemax netgear adapter and a TL wn321g and all have failed to work with my computer so im starting to think that there is something wrong with my computer and not the adapters.

I am in desperate need of help so if anyone here knows how I could fix this please post here ASAP. I would highly appreciate your help and effort.

I have to have this desktop wireless, wireing it is simply not an option, so please don't post saying to wire it. I purchesed the Belking N1 Desktop Wireless Adapter, mainly becouse I have always had good luck with their products and they are generally rated fairlly high. I have installed the device as per the included directions. I have called Belkin and had the device replaced. I have called them and installed as they described and any which way in between. Nothing as worked.
I can get it to work for a short while and than it will lock my pc up and or cause it crash on end. The only remedy is to roll back the OS and take it out. Belkin keeps telling me that it is fine (the adapter) but that is bs if you ask me. I am currently using the pre-n version of that same adapter but it is not compatible with vista (although it does still work on it). I am pretty sure that the pre-n version is not in any way compatible with vista service pack 2 and most likly not at all with windows 7.
Any ideas from anyone as a possible solution? And yes I have updated the firmware and used that version.

I recently bought a N+ Belkin adapter, as my old adapter did not support Windows 7 and our household is upgrading to an N router soon.

The USB adapter (model number F5D8055) works fine on a vista desktop that is connected to the router, and will seemingly install on my Windows 7 rig, but it will not detect any wireless networks, or even enable. When asked to enable, it says it is enabling, claims to be enabled, and then continues to not work.

CD, of course, will not install drivers, as they are vista-only. The online drivers don't seem to work, nor does manually installing the 64 bit vista drivers from the cd.

Any ideas on how to make it connect? I'm fairly certain it's a driver compatablility issue
.
Thanks.
