Belkin wireless


Well-known Member
I bought a wireless usb adapter yesterday and i have had nothing but problems, it installed no problem connected straight away then it dropped out signal went down then up then down , connected ,disconnected, i think you get the picture.
I also have a d-link wireless usb adapter and have never had a problem in three years with that,are belkin that bad?

Belkin normally are quite reliable. Are you running Vista on the PC giving you problems? If so there are some problems with Vista and wireless apparently. the main things to try are the latest drivers, broadcasting SSID of the wireless network etc.,

If not Vista then you may have a faulty adaptor assuming you've already downloaded latest drivers etc.,

Personally ( and this is my personal opinion ) I've never got on with USB adaptors, finding either PCI for PCs or PCMCIA for laptops give more reliable performance.

Welcome to the world of Belkin wireless adapters :D


I would also guess you are using Vista? Belkin just appear to be incapable of creating a vista driver which does the job.

This problem is posted all over the internet, so many unhappy customers. I phoned Belkin and asked for help, the representative did not think it was unreasonable for me to just "wait" until a good driver is released.

If I was you, I would return that adapter as not fit for purpose.
