Belkin F5d8053 N Usb Wireless Adapter Cannot Connect

It would seem that plenty of people on the forums have had similar problems to mine but no real solutions are forthcoming, so i thought i may as well put my problem up in case the specifics make it easily solvable. Bear with me cos i've tried a lot of things and i don't want to leave anything out incase it's useful. Ok, i got a new laptop recently and wanted to transfer my music collection from my desktop to the laptop.

At this time both machines were connecting to the network properly, i was using a belkin usb g wireless adapter and windows 7 ultimate x64 in the desktop, and the inbuilt wireless with windows 7 home premium x64 on the laptop. I tried to do this through homegroups and for some reason the laptop couldn't join or even see the homegroup, so i ended up connecting the hard drive from the laptop directly to the desktop via sata cable. When i put the hard drives back the way they were originally after the transfer was complete, the wireless on my desktop had stopped working.

In the adapter settings panel, the wireless connection was set to disabled and whenever i tried to enable it, a box came up saying "enabling" followed by "enabled" but the main icon in the panel would still say disabled and the network wizard would say "not connected". To eliminate hardware malfunction as a cause, i tried disabling the integrated wireless on the laptop and using the usb adapter from the desktop to connect to the internet. This worked better than it ever had in the desktop. I tried updating the drivers in various compatibility modes and removing every trace of belkin software from the computer to start again, but to no avail. In the end i bought a new usb adapter, the 802. 11n adapter in the subject line (i needed an upgrade anyway as the router is two floors below the computer).

This worked better in the desktop, allowing the wireless connection to enable, but still not seeing any wireless networks in the area (of which there are around 6). After much uninstalling, reinstalling, updating, rolling back, shouting and pleading, the adapter finally started picking up the wireless networks for the area, including mine. Unfortunately that is all it would do - it refused to connect. All the while, the laptop has been able to make a strong connection with the router. I have tried going into the routers firmware from the desktop but inexplicably while the networking wizard can see the wireless network, the computer cannot get through to the router.

A wired connection works, however having the router and computer in the same room permanently is impossible due to the position of the cable entry point in my house. Removing the router security does not work. Resetting the router and rebuilding the network connection does not work. Threats do not work. I was hoping that somebody would have a suggestion as to why this is happening and what can be done.

Problems With Usb Wireless Network Adapter

Have purchased new hp desktop with windows 7 home premium. Have tried using d-link dwa-160 (reva) usb wireless adapter. Used latest updated software from d-link site (may be for vista 64 os as win 7 not listed). Wireless adapter works for short time and then loses connection. Have used win 7 wizard to fix problem. Indicates that driver for usb may not correct driver. Still disconnects throughout the day. Have un-installed software.

Deleted driver for dwa-160. Re-started computer with clean start. Plug usb adapter in and windows 7 does not even recognize that a usb device is connected. Have tried to "add a device" and win 7 still does not recognize that anything is connected to usb. Hp amd win 7 x64. Any help?

Linksys Wireless-g Usb Network Adapter Update Fails

I recently installed windows 7 on my pc that was previously running xp. Ever since installation i've had issues with my wireless adapter. Whenever my pc is shutdown, restarted, or left to sleep for extended periods the network monitor in the tray displays that there are no connections available (as if the system doesn't recognize the adapter).

I have been uninstalling/reinstalling the driver from the disk every time this happens. Also, the update mentioned in the title fails to install. Would this update fix my problem and how do i fix it?

Wireless Network Adapter Gone Missing

After resuming from a sleep, the network adapter disappeared. This happened before and they replaced the computer, after trying a system restore and then full recovery. Apparently, it's not the computer. The wireless adapter is missing from device manager, much less the network and connections area. In troubleshoot, the computer simply says a network cable needs to be plugged in. There is no wireless choice under network connections. There is no wireless adapter tab upon right click of network adapter in device manager.

The realtek wlan driver does appear in the programs & features list. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and also found/installed a patch for the driver. This did not work. I also started/automated the autoconfig scripts for wireless. Nothing works.

Wireless Network Adapter Compatibility

As stated matter above, i would to have a professional guidance on what should i do. First of all, i currently using the windows 7 which just installed on my acer aspire 4736z (laptop) about a month ago. My wireless connection to the belkin router previously work just fine until recently i decided to change to the new d-link dsl-2640t wireless router. The troubleshooting window kept on bugging me to reset the router. I followed all the instructions, but to no avail nothing changed.

I tried to download some of the wireless network drivers to replace the current wireless network adapter (atheros ar5b93 wireless network) but again nothing changed. Surprisingly, i did succeed to access the internet using the cat 5e ethernet cable which connected point-to-point from the wireless router to the laptop. So here, i suspected there is something wrong with the wireless network adapter.

All the downloaded folders failed to take effect on the current settings. The recommended solution by windows is either to reset network adapter or access point. Is it have anything to do with the compatibility of the wireless network adapter with the dsl-2640t wireless router or any other issues?

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

Wireless Network Automatic Connect But Does Not Stick

Windows 7 home premium (x86) user is running as administrator. Mcafee a/v corporate is installed.
In wireless properties, connection tab, the top box is checked (connect automatically when this network is in range) and the box to "connect even if this network is not broadcasting its name (ssi)" also is checked. I have checked these boxes manually and also had the network "troubleshooter" fix the problem of not automatically connecting. As soon as the top box is checked and ok is clicked, the connection to the wireless network is made. However, on the next reboot, both boxes are unchecked and the user must connect to the network manually. What is unchecking the boxes and how can i stop this from happening?

User Cannot Connect To Wireless Network But Admin Can

I'm running windows 7 home premium. When i logon as an administrator, every-thing's fine - connects to wireless network, internet, all's well. But when i logon as a regular user, it is unable to connect to the wireless network. (When i run the networking troubleshooter - again, as regular user - it complains that no ethernet cable is attached. Seems way off base for a wireless issue. ) Do you know how to fix this problem (other than making the user an administrator, which i don't want to do)?

Problems With Usb Wireless Adapter

Having problems with usb wireless adapter. Seems to go to sleep regularly and not wake up. When running xp, this would happen occasionally. All i would do to fix it was unplug and plug the usb adapter and it would start back up fine.

With windows 7, it happens regularly and when i unplug and plug it will not restart. Only thing that works is to restart? Is there a way to restart the wireless adapter without restarting. Or better, keep it from dying or restart automatically.

Iv'e noticed an inordinate number of people having endless problems with wireless networking and windows 7. Now its my turn. Linksys wag120n router wpa2billion bipac 3011n usb adapter connected to winxp sp3. Worked instantly. Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit sitting next to it with the same usb adapter (listed as realtek rtl8191su) cannot see the router or any of the available wireless networks within range. I tried different drivers and disabled kaspersky av all to no avail. My question is this:
Can anyone out there suggest a usb wireless-n adapter that they know works with linksys wag120n on windows 7 64-bit? (Desktop)

Belkin Usb Wireless Adapter With 64-bit

I have recently bought a belkin wireless g usb adapter (f5d7050) and am unable to connect to any connections on my desktop.

I am using the adapter on my desktop, which is running windows 7 professional 64bit. I have been searching online for solutions, and saw tons of compatibility problems with this device, yet i have gotten the drivers working (or so it seems) even though i can not connect to any networks.

I have tried using the drivers that the device came with in multiple compatibility modes, in addition to the newest drivers on belkin's website in multiple compatibility modes.

The driver seems to be working, my device is recognized, and i can click on it and see all the wireless networks within range. My problem is that it will not connect to any of these networks, whether it is an open network, or a wpa2 network. I know my router works, since i am using the internet on my laptop. I also have checked the router for any funky settings that would cause my problems. There is no mac filtering, or anything else that would cause the device to not connect.

I am wondering what i need to do in order to connect to the networks. It doesn't even seem like windows 7 is trying when i type in the password, or select an open network. I instantly get the "can't connect to "

Considering belkin has been no help, i have come here as my last resort. I really need internet on my desktop. Please let me know if there is a solution to this problem.

Talktalk Snu5630ns 05 Wireless Usb Adapter Driver Compatibility

I am using the talktalk snu5630ns 05 wireless usb adapter, in the beta version of windows 7 the device installed with windows xp drivers and ran better than it did on xp.

After switching back to xp professional i have been looking for solutions to this problem but have found none, does anyone have the same problem and does anyone have a solution to this problem or will i need to buy a new usb dongle?

Well, i have no idea which one or how to do it. If this is possible and someone knows this information, l please share.

Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Running Usb Wireless Broadband Stick

Can i connect my xbox 360 to my laptop running usb wireless broadband stick and play on xbox live? I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect an xbox360 direct to a laptop that uses a telstra 21 wireless broadband usb stick to connect to internet.

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

D-link Dwa-130 Usb Wireless Network Connection Problem

My nic keeps loosing connection, i get a message saying default gateway not found and then i unplug the nic and plug it back in and it works for 5-10 mins then looses connection again, although my other pc keeps it's connection. I'm running windows7 64 bit. I've been told to uninstall the drivers that came with the nic and let windows install it's own drivers, does anyone know where i can find the windows drivers on the ms site?

Am i able to download the drivers then uninstall the d-link drivers and then install the windows drivers rather than connecting the pc hardwired to the router, this means i'll have to unplug the pc and move it to another location to wire it to the router which i don't really want to do.

Microsoft Virtual Wireless Adapter

I have a dell vostro 1400 notebook with a broadcom wlan 1390 installed. Recently, i have upgraded the wlan driver to version 5. 60. 18 using the upgrade provided by dell bearing id no r242438. After the upgrade, i have confronted the following problem. The name of the adapter has changed in programs like stopcut and netcut. In other words, when i try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, i find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, microsoft virtual adapter mentioned correctly, while my wireless adapter is labeled as microsoft instead of dwlan 1390 as it used to display before.

The adapter is displayed with its right label (dwlan 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever i use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label i got for my wireless adapter is microsoft and not dwlan 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and i get the same result.

Unable To Connect To Wireless Router

I just purchased an hp mini with w 7 starter two months ago. Until yesterday i have been able to connect to my actiontec m1424wr router. After running win network diagnostics it says there is a "problem with the driver for the wireless network adapter". I can't get online to help and support for further diagnostics because i can't connect to the internet(catch 22). The taskbar shows my router is available with "limited access". I also have a dell laptop w/ xp and have never had a problem connecting. I have performed some of the ideas from one of the threads on this forum including the shutdown of the netbook and router and then powering them back up. I am not real tech savvy but really need some help with this.

Rosewill Rnx-g300lx Wireless Adapter Not Working

Upgraded to windows 7 from windows xp and can't get a wireless adapter to work. Have both a rosewill rnx-g300lx and a linksys wusb65gs and have tried multiple drivers without any luck. Both worked fine prior to upgrade. Windows 7 device manager will recognize the rosewill and when using network manager it recognizes my wireless network, but once i enter encryption code it hangs for longest time and then tells me there is a problem with the connection.

I ran the problem solver multiple times only to be told there is not a solution. If i plug the linksys usb adapter in it won't even recognize it despite having no problems prior to the windows 7 upgrade. If there is no solution do you at least have a list of compatible devices?

Linksys Wmp300n Wireless Adapter Driver Issue

Windows overwriting linksys wmp300n wireless adapter driver with broadcom 802. 11n network adapter driver. After installing drivers for a linksys wmp300n pci wireless adapter, windows is automatically overwriting it with newer broadcom 802. 11n network adapter drivers (that cause it to not work). How can i install the appropriate drivers and prevent windows from changing them?

I tried using gpedit. Msc to prevent automatic installation of drivers, but then that prevented me from installing the real drivers as well. Can i make a policy that would just prevent the broadcom driver from installing?

Belkin Wireless F7d4101 Adapter Driver Issue

I bought the belkin play wireless adapter, originally for an xp machine and installed on there fine, i then upgraded my cpu to windows 7 and reformatted my hard drive, since then i cannot get it to install properly.

Both windows 7 are the 64 bit version. Im using an asus iii maximus gene mobo. Any help would be appreciated.
