Belkin Wireless N+ Adaptor, only 54mbps?

Q: Belkin Wireless N+ Adaptor, only 54mbps?

I currently have a Belkin Wireless N router and have been using the standard wireless card in my laptop to connect to it which only supports wireless G, so I just purchased a Belkin N+ wireless adaptor and set it up but it only shows 54mbps when wireless N should be 300mbps? Are wireless N and N+ two different things? Ive tried setting my router to wireless N only and the adapter picks up the router, but refuses to connect to it. Any ideas on how to get it to connect in wireless N to my router?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop with a Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN Wireless NIC. It will only connect to my new wireless-N router (Belkin Vision ADSL) at 54mbps. The signal is strong and both the router and NIC are in wireless-N mode. No other devices are currently connected.

I'm stumped. Anyone got any ideas?

I ll try to keep this short I ve recently moved house in the UK and have had to switch my broadband supplier to BT They supply a wireless router in this case the BT Home Hub I connected it yesterday and it works fine My Asus EEE netbook and Windows Adaptor 7..? Belkin Wireless N vs my HTC Desire HD phone connected no problem However I cannot get my desktop PC to connect It runs Windows bit and I m trying to use a Belkin Belkin N Wireless Adaptor vs Windows 7..? N Wireless USB network adaptor Model number F D version which is W compatible I have run the Belkin install software Belkin N Wireless Adaptor vs Windows 7..? which appears to install ok and the adaptor shows up in Devices and Printer ok However the Belkin Wireless Utility wouldn t install and when I try to find a network to connect to there is nothing showing I have uninstalled and then reinstalled the Belkin software both from the disc and from the Belkin support page to no avail When I run BT s software it gets so far before it says that the adaptor is not WPA compatible and switch it to WEP The blurb on the box shows that the adaptor is WPA WPA and WEP compatible so not sure what s going on there I diabled the Belkin N Wireless Adaptor vs Windows 7..? wifi whatnot in the netbook and used the adaptor on it and it picked up many wifi networks in the area including mine and sucessfully connected to it so I don t think it s the adaptor as such but rather that it won t run on my machine I ve tried it in several different USB ports with no joy I have managed to get the Belkin wireless Utility to run on the PC now but it s not showing any networks I m hoping that there is some simple setting that I can change which will magically make everything better but I m not holding out any hope I have picked the brains of a couple of IT savvy mates but they seem bewildered by it too Help please nbsp

Hey there,

Trying to install a Belkin Wireless or Retail Plus+ N USB Adapter, which the microsoft page says is compatible with Windows 7 (for the Belkin) and receiving an error basically saying the driver is not compatible with this operating system.

This is a brand new computer that came with Windows 7 installed and has 0 internet access right now....what can you suggest?

Also, I do have a wired internet access point in my house I can move it to, if there is something I need to download I can probably do this.

It's been hours, and I feel like I may have to take the whole thing back.

I would prefer to use the Retail Plus+ USB adapter for this system if given the choice, since the Belkin is in use on another computer in the house, but I'll take whatever is out there.

Belkin : Support

Try there,download to a usb and transfer the files over and install.

IMO i would bring the pc online,much quicker.

Thats for drivers,as for it not being compatable im no expert..que expert

Right click on it in device manager. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse. Now find the .inf and double click on it. Hit ok so it installs.

You might have to extract from the .exe driver installer first if that's what you have.

A:Belkin F5D8053N Wireless Adaptor Problem

Welcome to SevenForums chrislis
From looking at Belkin support page no drivers for x64 are yet available for your adapter. However they indicate that they might be available in the future. You may be able to find a work around but I have not been able to locate one for you. Good luck to you with this problem. I hope that you stay with us here at SF.

Just purchased a new computer from best buy today with windows 7 (obviously), along with that I also purchased a belkin branded wireless network adaptor. I follow the setup directions all the way through until it tells me to restart the computer for the software to work. When it boots back up, it recognizes the network adaptor but the driver for the adaptor is non-existent like it never installed in the first place, thus the adaptor not being able to work and connect to the internet. I've also tried installing the driver with windows firewall turned off, but still no luck.

Here's the model number for the adaptor: F6D4050 v2

As a side note, this is my first computer that I've bought brand new....Everything else I always bought used, so I'm sorta on a rough start lol. Any help would be much appreciated.

I need some HELP... i have been having a lot of problems with my Windows 7 install (using 7000) i have finally managed to get it quite stable after a lot of crashing but i still have a HUGE PROBLEM.

Last night i plugged in my wireless PCI Card a Belkin F5D7010xx and installed it through Device manager and i didnt need a driver CD, Windows installed it spot on and it worked great, even shut down re-booted and NO Issues....

The problem, today i have come to my PC and booted it up and it locked up straight away on the user page, so i had no option but to use the main power switch to shut down .. so .. i unplugged the Belkin card and it booted spot on with no problems so i plugged in my card and straight away the power light lit up on the card and CRASH PC locked up if i unplug it again it still remains in the crashed state so again i use the main power button ... This time i decided to boot in safe mode with the Belkin card fitted and well i was shocked, it booted up with no issues at all and connects to teh internet fine ....

I am extremely confussed, my laptop is not very powerfull its a compaq presario 2500 2.4ghz and 1gb ram could that be an issue .. oh im running 32-bit beta 7000

I am really confused ... basically I was using vista home premium 64bit, I bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade and installed it as an upgrade over Vista. Everything worked fine but my system seemed slow, I thought this may be down to lots of old unused Vista files clogging up my pc as i don't see that windows 7 completely removed them all, I decided to format my hard drive and do a clean install of windows 7. Once it had installed my network adaptor didn't work, i tried the vista drivers, looked on belkins website but no newer ones on there and just a note to say windows 7 drivers coming soon basically!

The thing is i know it can work in Windows 7 because when i upgraded from vista it worked fine but on a clean install it won't, any ideas how i can get it working on a clean install?!!

I am kind of in the same position on one machine I have with a D-LINK wireless card.

Some hardware manufacturers are not always quick off the mark with Windows 7 support, are they?

Might mean I get to buy some other card soon - I am NOT going to wait for a vendor to get round to Windows 7, 64 bit support.

Hi there,

I got a new Dell desktop - XPS7100 in April with Wireless N Wlan card and everything was running fine speed wise however for last two weeks I am suddenly only being able to get maximum speed of 54mbps on my wi-fi connection.

I have installed drivers to latest etc but still cannot get back to the speeds I should be getting on my 50Meg BB.

Nothing has changed with the router or anything so am at a loss as to why this has suddenly happened.

Help please!

A:Wireless N only getting 54mbps

try releasing control from the application that came with the wireless device and turning it back over to windows, or vice versa, whichever may be the case. This is usually a application oriented problem in my experience and not a hardware oriented once (unless signal strength is an issue)

For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

If you are using the Mac OS then use or
if you want to optimise base station position and signal strength / dead spots use which has a graph function to monitor signal

Hi everyone,

So i came to the conclusion that the adapter doesn't work anymore. It use to work previously before i reinstalled windows vista.

Please could somebody help me with this problem

Not a problem as such, just something I wondered whilst bored the other day.

If I had a 54mbps wireless router, with 1 client connected wirelessly, the computer would get the full 54mbps.
If I had 2 computers connected wirelessly, would both have 54mbps or would both ahve a throughput of somewhere nearer 27mbps?

As I said, just something I wondered about that may be helpful at a later time.

with a CAT6 cable going between the modem and the router

What am I doing wrong.

Between the router and my DESKTOP computer I get 1 Gbps, but my speed for wireless is still only 54Mbps, I thought I could get this up to 150.


A:Wireless Connection ONLY 54MBps

Just to make sure your wireless adapter is wireless N also? If so then you might want to check your wireless settings. I had a similar problem with mine. When in mixed mode it would cut my rate down to 36Mbps instead of 54MBps despite my adapter being G like the router. When I would set it to G only everything was fine. Maybe you're having the same issue.

A:Belkin adaptor encryption problem

Depending on the os you are running on the laptop, running wpa/tkip security would probably be best as wep is insecure. How are your routers configured? Does one provide connection to the other? I would also disable ssid in the wireless router, and set a mac filter in the wifi router only allowing my laptop's mac. You might want to read up on how all these settings are made, here is a page on wpa/tkip to get you started:

What is the exact model of that Westell modem? Why are you trying to use ICS, since that "modem" is probably a modem/router? If not, I'd spring for a $20-30 wireless router rather than ICS.

Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?

Concerning wireless routers, I need help understanding advertised speeds. Some advertise 54Mbps and some, 108-, 125-, etc.

The router will be used with two-year-old Compaq and Averatec laptops with built-in Wireless G; but, I might consider a Wireless PCMCIA card if it will increase LAN speed.

Brands and specific models don't have any bearing on my question; I'm just trying to understand the data rates and when/how it makes a difference in my real-world use of this wireless hardware on a LAN.

I have a wireless-G linksys USB network adaptor (2.4 GHz 802.11g) that cannot pick up my wirless network. It is however picking up numerous other networks surrounding my house. Right now I'm using my Toshiba laptop that is connected to the same home network that my linksys adaptor cannot find.

Can anyone offer my any advice as to how to find my wireless network through my USB adaptor hooked up to my desktop computer? I know how to access my router information (Enter for linksys and all that other good stuff) but do not know what exact settings I may needto change in order to have my desktop computer recognize the home network.

Is something perhaps hidden on the router information? Or is my adaptor out of date? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

Just reinstalled Windows XP Pro on a friend's daughter's computer. A D-Link Airplus dwlg510 wireless adaptor was added to her EMachine a few years back (model D6417). It was working erratically before the XP reinstall (which was done for another reason - was never done and computer was really slow so we figured this might speed it up - it did dramatically by the way). I went to the D-Link site and downloaded and installed the driver. Wireless connection still isn't working (tried wired and it works fine, but her room doesn't have a cable connection available) and the symbol in the taskbar comes up with an X over it then goes out. Light on the adaptor is blinking. Is there anything else I could be overlooking??

Hi Lieskens, and welcome to TSG.

Did you get a printed User Guide with the adapter or a PDF file for the User Guideon a CD? If not, there is a download link for an Adobe Acrobat PDF file on the Trendnet web site:

The guide seems include the set-up procedure for establishing a connection. You will need to know the Wireless SSID of the router and any encryption key being used.

I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

A:Wireless Connections problems (Belkin Wireless Utility)

Actually, you can have more than four things connected to the router. You normally have connections for four wired connections, but you can have more wireless connections. Also, you can expand the wired connections with an Ethernet switch.

First off, I'd access the router's configuration and disable encryption to get the connection initially connected. Once you get it connecting without the encryption, then we can add in the encryption as a separate step.

Please supply the following info.

The name of your ISP and country of residence.
Make/model of the broadband modem.
Make/model of the router (if any).
Connection type, wired, wireless.
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).

The compatibility with your modem won't be the issue, it'll simply be the compatibility with your computer and your router. As long as the device is compatible with Windows 7 you should be fine. You can check the compatibility via the Windows 7 compatibility center.

You should also know that you may be able to fix your BSOD if you post the minidumps from your crashes in the crashes and debugging section of this forum.

Here's a decent adapter that should work for you.

However, to get internet access to his new computer we purchased a LimitOne USB Keychain wireless and it didn't work! Then we went back (thinking the LimitOne wasn't compatible with Vista) and purchased a Buffalo Wireless-G USB adapter for his new machine. It ALSO doesn't work!

I find it hard to believe that two USB adapters don't work! We're both very frustrated as he can't use his machine for anything right now.

Note: both machines are right next to each other right now, so distance should not be an issue.

Should we go exchange the USB adapter for a card?

Any other ideas?

A:Wireless Adaptor Won't Work

Driver support for Vista and USB network adapters is very poor. I don't know which USB adapter you have but I certainly had a Buffalo USB adapter working with 32-bit Vista, even though it didn't claim Vista compatibility.

My advice would be to exchange the USB adapter for a card or other USB adapter but do some research first - make sure that whatever you buy has some proper released Vista drivers and claimed Vista compatibility. If you have any trouble with it you can ring the company support line and get them to help you with it.

Try the HP support forums and see if you can find other HP owners that have found devices that work.

hello to every one
I have Toshiba Satellite L300 laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit triple booting with windows xp and window developer preview
and ALFA (AWUS036H) wireless usb adaptor
the reception in my room is poor so i've got a 5 meter usb extention cable to overcome my issue , when i connect them together the wireless adaptor works perfectly and i can easily connect to my wireless network but my problem is the adaptor becomes disabled or disconnected spontanously after 4 to 5 minutes.
i tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver and updated the driver as well but still the same issue
any help will be appretiated
i already tried a powered usb but still the same

A:usb wireless adaptor disabled after a while

Check the 5 metre cable. For testing purpose remove the 5 metre cable and connect directly and move close to your wireless router.

I need an adaptor that's good for gaming and needs a long range connection.
(My other adaptor I bought didn't have good enough range so it does need to have amazing range)
Budget: 20-30 Pounds

A:Best USB Wireless Adaptor for Gaming?

instead of getting a wireless adapter, look into power over ethernet if possible.

simply plug one in next to the router and the other next to your pc, then run an ethernet cable from router to the one next to it, and then one from your pc to the other.
then your wires in your house become hiden ethernet cables!!

If you keep your tower under your desk, you might need one that has a longer antena that you can place above the desk to increase reception.

Hi Folks,

is this weird or what? Last Friday the security guys installed the final phase of a new system that included a wireless router. It think they could have just used a standard one but most nowadays are wireless. When I came back after the weekend I switched my Dell Inspiron 510M on and received a prompt "Choose a wireless network". Strange because I didn't have my Belkin Network Card slotted into the side of the laptop.

So I sneaked into the survelance room and wrote down the address code and entered it into the box provided during the prompt....IT WORKED!!! Access to the outdie World via the internet while bypassing the company server.

Is the signal so strong that the eletronics in the laptop can pick up the signal (full strength) or am I being radiated with radiowaves? Shoild I be worried?

Best Regards


A:Wireless without adaptor on my Laptop

Guess what? Your laptop has a built in wireless card already and you were weakening it by installing a Belkin external PCMCIA adapter. Happy computing!

My daughter has a new Sony Vaio laptop, running Windows Vista. It has been fine for three weeks. Suddenly, the wireless adapter cannot see a wireless network. All other computers in the house see the network, but not the new Sony. In fact, her Sony will see the network for a few minutes, and then suddenly stop. Other times, it doesn't see it at all.

I've tried the following

turning off and then on the wireless receiver
reinstalling the device driver for the wireless card
updating the device driver for the wireless card

Nothing seems to work. She did say that all was fine until she installed Canon software for her digital camera.

Any help would be welcome.

So I just got a brand new laptop, a Dell Inspiron. I turned it on, started adjusting properties to suit me, and tried to connect to my internet connection. In the process I wanted to disconnect from my internet, but nstead I pressed disable. Now I can't figure out at all how to enable the thing again. I try to troubleshoot it and it tells me that the wireless adaptor is disabled, but gives me absolutely no clues on how to enable it again.

How do I do this? 5 minutes old and I already have problems...

A:Enable wireless adaptor


Usually its a special keystroke, something like ALT+F8 - check above the laptop keys : are there special functions shown, perhaps a wireless icon?

If you are able to take a photo of the keyboard and post here we can solve it in two shakes of a lambs tail.

Hello, I recently bought a Zonet1642d for my computer. The installation went well but for some reason the network speed maxes out at 1 Mbps and web pages take minutes to load. I know this is either a problem with either the settings of the adapter or windows 7 since a laptop with a similar network card can get full speeds from the same location.
Any help is much appreciated and thank you in advance.

If it's not listed in Device Manager anywhere, I'd check the BIOS to see if it's disabled. If not, open up the access door on the bottom of the machine and make sure the wireless adapter is firmly seated.

If those measures fail, it may have simply died.
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?

In my house I have 2 computers. One downstairs that is connected to Wireless router. That computer uses the router to connect my computer upstairs, that uses a Wireless G USB network adaptor. I bought a Game adaptor for my PS2 to run it upstairs. My cousin came over and set it up. So the PS2 was hooked up online. After a while it would not connect to the internet or it would fail to go past the DNAS stage. Sometimes unplugging the game adaptor or power cycling would fix the issue. Then it got to a point where I had no connection on my PS2 and I was forced to drag it downstairs and play it plugged in on the router. Any ideas on how I fix this?

Hi, I use all linksys for networking. The main computer has the router and everything works fine on it. I have another computer with a wireless adaptor and everything works fine on it as well. However, I have one computer, that, when I plug in the wireless adaptor, it says the signal stength is excellent, however, the packets sent is such a small number going up VERY SLOW, and the packeets received usually hangs around the number 5. I can't do ANYTHING on the internet. It says the page can't be displayed and I can't connect to anything. However, if I take this exact adaptor and plug it into another computer, it works I assume the problem is on the computer's end. What could it possibly be? PLEASE help, Thanks

After a reboot the card / drivers loose the ability to connect to the wireless network, it can “see” it just not successfully connect.

After entering the WEP (it only supports that) key again it will be able to log into the network.

Hello guys

My problem seems to lie with my 'wireless adaptor card' that's in my Advent 4490 netbook. If the netbook has not been used for a day or so, when it boots up I have no 'wireless' connection - but if I open the netbook and remove the wireless adaptor and reinsert it ..... whoosh ..... all is well again !

What I would like advice on is:-
1 - whether it's worth getting another wireless adaptor card? or internal cable?
2 - does it matter which 'connector' the internal cable is attached to on the adaptor card?


A:Wireless adaptor card 'missing'

Try cleaner the gold connectors with an eraser, make sure you remove any bits of rubber left on them, use a Q-tip or tissue for that and avoid touching the connectors with your fingers.

There's a card on Ebay now, not saying buy it but if you look at the pic the cable should go to the left hand connector labelled 'Main'.
