Windows 7: Belkin Wireless Desktop Network Card F5D7000

Belkin Wireless Desktop Network Card F5D7000

Hi,

I recently built a new PC. My old PC was a Dell Dimension 9200 (the specifications of which can be viewed in my profile).

My old PC was Windows 7 32bit. My new PC is Windows 7 64bit.

The new build was mostly new parts, except I was hoping to bring over my wireless network card. This came with my Dell machine and is a Belkin Wireless Desktop Network Card F5D7000.

I've plugged this card into the motherboard and it's being recognised as an attachment, but I believe I'm having trouble with the drivers as the computer isn't showing any wireless networks.

I tried using the Dell network drivers, but got an error saying the hardware wasn't correct (I assume it checks to see if it's a Dell motherboard, which it no longer is).

I also tried using the Version 7 and 8 drivers available here: Official Belkin Support Site | Wireless G Desktop Card F5D7000 v1, v2, v3, v4, v5, v6, v7, v8 - Driver Only Packages (US) I also tried to install them in Windows Vista compatability mode.

Although V7 and V8 seem to install (or at least the wizard finishes and the files are put on my drive), I don't think they are actually functioning as the machine still isn't recognising any wireless networks. The network icon has a red cross through it and the troubleshooting just tells me to attach an Ethernet cable.

Any help with this would be so greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

In addition you can plug in by ethernet cable, Enable hardware auto-updating via Windows Update (Step 3) then Check for Updates and see if Win7 has a driver it wants for the device. Most ethernet drivers should autoload but if not use the one for your ethernet device.

It's also very important to install all Important and Optional Updates since Win7 has no SP2 and there are vital patches that make the OS, other software and hardware work correctly.

Thank you. This solved the problem. None of the drivers I downloaded online worked at all, but Windows Update automatically found the right one when I connected via Ethernet.

Thanks for reporting back. We still have some around here who dispute that installing all drivers and other Important and Optional Updates is critical. But it is especially so after MS decided not to give us a SP2, even though XP had 3 SP's!

I think the reason is that we see problems here reported about WIndows Update which are in reality only one in a million or less, but since they come here to report them it gives the appearance there are manifold problems with updates. There are not. They are so important that I like to say you don't even have Win7 if you are not fully patched with all Important and Optional Updates.

Belkin wireless g Desktop PCI card
I can't find a working driver for it. Maybe one does not exist? I downloaded the Vista driver from Belkin's website, but it didn't work. Is there a generic driver for Win 7 that exists that would work? Windows update didn't find anything. Part number F5D7001 Version 1000
