  • That card does indeed work with both Vista and Windows 7 (the card I'm using actually).  Belkin does supply a driver for Vista, though it didn't work for me in Vista or Windows 7 (and they said the exact same thing about engineers working on the problem when the Vista driver first came out).

    The actual answer to this is to use the MS supplied Atheros Wireless Network Adapter driver.  Install it manually by updating the driver through device manager.  I've answered this in other areas as well.  If you'd like more assistance, just e-mail me, though this is a simple process.

  • ok i see. well i asked them and of course they said that the card was obviously not compatible. and i tried many drivers.... they did say that their engineers were working on the drivers for windows 7... so i guess ill just have to wait.  What version of the drivers will it be... 9000?

  • ok finally i got the correct driver.... only took a few weeks... anyway it was a broadcom driver. when i had started windows it was going terribly slow and i didnt know why... like even the mouse was moving in big chunks so i decided to uninstall the network adapter. that worked and it was back to speed... still i was not connected to the internet. after much trial and error i found the broadcom 802.11g driver to work wonderfully (by wonderfully i mean it didnt destroy my computer) anyway thanks for all of the help.

  • If there are Vista Drivers available you should be able to install them directly or through Vista Compatibility Mode.  If there is no drivers available for Vista then you will have to contact the manufacturer of the product.  The manufacturers are responsible for making the appropriate drivers for the OS not Microsoft.

  • thanks thats good news... only thing is thats what i tried first.... i did actually did get one of the drivers for vista to work in vista after a bit of fiddling around but i cant get it to work in 7... it gives me like code 10 the device could not start...?

     

    thanks

    Wednesday, January 28, 2009 9:01 PM
  • I think the F5D7000 is based on the Ralink RT2500 Chipset.  You should find the Vista drivers HERE should work for you - they worked for me when I used a Belkin USB adapter under Vista and the Belkin drivers wouldn't.
    Wednesday, January 28, 2009 10:02 PM
  • hmm well now when i try to install drivers it gives me code 1 or 28... they both say a service installation section is this INF is invalid... so i dont know what that means really... 
    Wednesday, January 28, 2009 11:00 PM
  • I got the f5d7000 Belkin Wireless G desktop card working in Windows 7 beta 32bit version.  I just used the original card that I got with the device.

    Then I installed the 64bit version of 7 and no luck, since the drivers were incompatible.  Then I searched the net for 64 bit Vista drivers, downloaded the latest (version 8) from Belkin, and that didn't work either.

    I then switched from the f5d7000 (which, under the 'hood' uses a Broadcom chip), to another Belkin card which utilizes one of the Atheros chips, reinstalled the now malfunctioning 64bit install of windows 7, and this card worked immediately.  If you're still having trouble, and if you're using the 64bit version of Windows 7 beta, then this might just work for you.  I got both cards from Staples.

     I hope this helps somebody.

  • Ok i sortout my problem quite faster than few weeks :) well i starts yesterday testing w7beta and i had problem with f5d7000 driver but the answer is incredible easy. So today after trying so many drivers for my network adapter i back to my original CD with drivers for Belkin and install with success using Update Drivers in Device Manager as i try with others drivers but this time i pick direction to the CD and it working smooth. Sounds silly but its working

    i hope it helps someone.

  •  I don't know if these are all connected
    but I have found that function keys which operate my Wireless Network,
    maybe the route of all my problems
    because if I switch my Wireless Network off by using a function key f2 and I go to use my bluetooth
    I find the system crashes all the time but if I leave my Wireless Network running
    I have no problems.

  • Just finished installing Windows 7 RC1 and experienced this issue. I found this post by searching for an answer. What worked for me was the Broadcom 802.11n Network Adaptor, though, I needed to manually install it following what was already suggested here.

    Hope this helps.

  • I have a belkin F5D7000 v3au and to get it working in Win 7 RC i just downloaded the vista or xp drivers (F5D7000_V3.exe) from Belkins website. I already had it installed on my Vista partiton and just told Win 7 to look at the directory where those drivers are and it worked fine.
    Hope this helps someone out.

  • Hi,

    You say used the Atheros Wireless network adapter supplied by mircosoft could not get it work. I went to manually update, select select from list found Athereos but lots of types i selected the Atheeros Wireless Network Adapter as you said but then get message saying cannot start device can you help???
    Monday, June 01, 2009 8:42 PM
  • Hi all,

    My problem is similar - using the F5D7000 device and I have tried a variety of Belkin, Broadcom, Atheros, and Ralink drivers (basically anything with a G). Driver Update (through a Bluetooth PAN from my phone) can't find anything either.

    Each time I get the same error - Can't switch on the device (Error 10).

    I know this specific device works fine on Vista x86 and x64, and Win7 x86.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    Bruce

  • I had trouble with my F5D7000, but a perfect driver comes with Windows 7 (although it is tricky to find)

    Update the driver manually, then Pick driver from a list, then:

    Manufacturer:       Atheros Communications Inc.
    Network Adaptor:  Belkin Wireless A/G Desktop Network Card

    It worked immediately. It would be nice if Belkin had it's own entry in the Manufacturer list as they are a major manufacturer.

    I hope this helps

  • After reading this with no answer working, I finally hooked up my computer to my router with a cable. Once hooked up i asked my computer to connect to Windows Update to find the latest drivers. The driver it found was 'Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card', it works perfectly. The card I actually have is the Belkin F5D7000 v1132uk. Hope this helps :)

  • hi mates,

    I've done this you say, installing the ahteros driver, but it doesn't work for me. I get an error message claiming error code 10. I also tried the broadcom driver, same code.

    Motherboard is an intel atom D945GCLF2 for desktop; I took a look at intel page, but no driver is ready yet, it claims.

    My Windows 7 version is Ultimate one. It's strange because I got the same problem when I installed Vista, but then the Atheros driver worked alright. You all say it works, but it seems nobody had the same "code 10" error I get.

    Should I buy a new card and forget  about this problem? Could anybody suggest a solution?

    Thanks very much and sorry if there's any grammatical mistake, I'm Spanish ;)

  • I should have posted this before, I'm sorry I didn't. My F5D7000 is now working under Windows 7, but the solution I found was so astonishing it can even be called "silly". Unfortunately this cannot be used if you don't keep the driver disc that came with the F5D7000. I can't remember right now every step I took, but I just had the cd on the cd-drive, but basicaly follow the steps that Dec0594 worte above, up till step 9; then -I think it was then- instead of choosing "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" in 10, you've got the drive where you can type the route where the driver should be; in my case it was e:\ Ok, I let it as it was, just e:\ or in other words, I told the computer "try to find it anywhere in that cd"... it worked. It's rather silly, it's just what we had to do years ago with Windows 98, same procedure, but instead of typing a whole adress, you click on the drive and let the rest completely empty. I'm not a computer technician nor informatic engineer, so I don't know anything from computers, I tried something I really didn't think could work because it was absolutely silly... but it worked. You just need the drivers cd, if you don't have it, I'm afraid it won't work. I hope this will help!

  • hey forum,

    Dec0594 's solutions isn't working for everybody since there exists at least 8 versions of the f5d7000. Each one is using a differnet chipset and requiring its own driver. I am not 100 % sure, but maybe they are using:
    • V1 Broadcom BCM4306
    • V2 Boadcom BCM4306 (BCM94306 ??)
    • V3 Ralink rt2500
    • V4 Broadcom (???)
    • V5 Atheros AR5212 (labeled as Atheros AR2413a-001)
    • V6 Ralink rt61 (??)
    • V7 RTL8515L
    • V8 ???
    You can check your version by looking for a sticker at the front or back of your device (see Belkin website for more information) or maybe by searching the web for the hardware ID, which you can find
    • in the <device manager>
    • right click your device (in the Network Adapters catagory (OR ) look for the Network Card that had the yellow exclamatory sign next to it)
    • choose the <details> tab
    • choose <hardware-IDs> form the drop down box.
    • Your device's Hardware ID is: "VEN_[ID]&DEV_[ID]"
    If you have a V5 device follow Dec's solution.
    If you have a V3 see here (the same driver will probably work for v6)

  • Because I had so much trouble wanna help someone else out!

    I followed Dec0594 steps, but came up with code 10.

    Someone else said depends on version you have whether that will work for you! That may have been the case for me. However, this is what I did:

    I took out belkin wireless card. Connected my computer to router with ethernet cable. Repaired LAN driver (on motherboard CD; don't know that this made the difference if you don't have cd). Updated windows 7.

    I then put the belkin card back in computer (and connected to the internet via ethernet cable) and updated windows 7 again (this time belkin card came up). 

    Removed the ethernet cable, and hey presto, restarted computer and my belkin card worked!!

    So, if the Decs steps don't work for you. Get an ethernet cable and connect directly through router to update windows. Then use this to also update software for Belkin card before removing cable. The card definitely works in Windows 7.

    Further to above: I have the Belkin software uploaded fine, so yes the card works. However, it is on and off and quite tetchy. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's really bad! I have ended up buying a cable and plugging directly into router. I've come to the conclusion that the problems with vista, are there with windows 7 and belkin have more work to do..

  • Anyone using Windows 7 professional (32 bit) with a ver 7xxx F5D7000 who still have the original driver CD with Vista drivers, browse to the installation files\vistaX86 folder on the CD when manually updating the driver.

    Worked for me!

    Sunday, October 31, 2010 12:48 AM
  • This was an extremely useful thread - so thanks to all who have contributed.

    I have ver 7xxx and did what martin999xyz suggested - installing Vista 64 drivers on my Windows Home Premium 64 bit machine - worked straight away! Belkin could do with being more bl*ody helpful!!

    Thanks all

  • If you have a F5d7000 v3 this is how i made mine work.

    1. Install this driver IS_AP_STA_6x_D-1.2.3.0_VA-2.1.0.0_2500_D-3.2.0.0_VA-3.2.0.0_RU-2.0.4.0_VA-2.0.4.0_AU-1.2.1.0_VA-1.0.4.0_101707_0.1.0.29

    2. Go to device manager, and manually update the driver, then choose pick from a list.

    3. Scroll all the way down to Ralink Technology, Inc( Which will only be visible after installing the driver) Thin pick Ralink RT2500 Wireless Lan Card and install...

    Tuesday, January 04, 2011 1:15 AM
  • Thank you so much for this!!!!!
    Monday, January 31, 2011 11:47 PM
  • Wow finally got mine working had to go to the RAlink website and download the driver from there. Install it then go into device manager and tell it to use the driver from under C:\Program files x86\RALINK\Drivers\ it ended up coming back working saying the network adaptor is a conceptronic 54g Wireless adaptor. Should of just saved myself the time and bought a new one. Looks like these cards are all rebranded so there could be lots of different models.

  • PERFECTION --- worked perfectly on my Windows 7 64 bit installation!

  • HEY EVERYONE,

    Here is a possible solution for Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card v7000 using Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate.  Not sure if it will work for other versions of Win7 64bit, but its possible.  Do not get worried by all the steps, its not that difficult, its just explained in detail for non "tech savy" people.  Here are steps:

    1.  Go to Belkin Website and download Windows VISTA 64bit drivers for F5D7000 v7000.  Filename will be F5D7000_v7032_0831.exe

    2.  Do not run (ie:double click)  The executable file is no good to you because the Belkin software will say its the wrong version of Windows.  

    3.  Download Free version6 of WINZIP or WINRAR if you do not already have it on your computer.  You will need this to "Extract" the files from the executable file you downloaded from Belkin.

    4.  Once you download the "extracting" software.  Open the Belkin executable file in the extraction software and extract it to your desktop.  Once done, you should have a folder with the name F5D7000_v7032_0831.  Good so far?

    The next part is similar to other fixes, but be sure to follow closely.

    5.  Go under "Start" button (Windows Logo) on the Task Bar.   Right click on "Computer" and click "Properties".  This will bring up a new screen.

    6.  Click on "Device Manager".    Your Network Adapter Card should have an exclaimation point next to it.  Right click and click on "update drivers".  This will bring up a new screen.

    7.  Click on "Browse my computer for driver software", and then  Click on "Browse".

    8.  Browse to the F5D7000_v7032_0831 folder on your desktop and look for the "VistaX64" folder.  Click on that and hit the OK button.  Windows does the rest.

    That's it.  Hope it works for you.  I know a lot of these fixes are hit and miss because of all the different versions of the card, as I tried a lot of different things to get mine working.  Not sure whats taking Belkin so long to create the drivers for Windows 7...they already have them.

    I encourage other users to try this method for other version of the card (ie: v5000, v6000 etc.) it may work.

    NOTE:  I do caution against trying other manufactures drivers only because this may cause a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) as it did for me, and really freak you out.  Windows will then launch "Startup Repair".  If it does, allow it to do a restore point, and this will get you back and rockin.

    Curious to see if this works for anyone else...let me know!
