Have a wireless card for a laptop, I get to 89% of install and hangs at C:\windows\system32\APCMCIAFIRSTHW
called Belkin and they instructed me to download new driver, and install from desktop..get same problem.

The genius I spoke to told me to try the wireless card in another computer, but since I have to complete the installation of software BEFORE I put the card in, it made no sense...after 1 hour they told me that a supervisor would call me...IM STILL WAITING !!!!


anyone have a idea?

I have a Toshiba satellite M35X laptop

Looks like a lot of people have had this problem. See if this helps....

The trick is finding the version of your F5D7010 card.

You need to match the version (there are 5 versions: 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000) The back of your card should have a little sticker on it that says one of these versions.

Based on this information, search for in google F5D7010_v1 or F5D7010_v2 or F5D7010_v3....you get the picture and download the appropriate driver from the belkin website.

If you don;t have a sticker on your card, then you will have to try all 5 drivers to find out which one is compatible.

Once you found the correct driver, the installation will no longer freeze at 89% when it asks you to insert the card.

Took me a while to figure this out, I hope this helps everybody out.

I deleted all my downloads and reinstalled the same version 3 times. On the last try, it worked!!!

Now I can tell Belkin where to put their "expert help" manuals !!!!
