Hi, I've recently been given a micra digital Wireless CardBus Adapter 802.11g , but can't find a working driver for it! Its a Belkin F5D7010 E. Naturally I tried googling it, but either the drivers won't install/ have no instructions (I'm still a bit of a noob...sorry) or Windows won't accept the driver (despite it being from microsoft!)

Hardware update wizard turns up nothing. I've read that there have been problems with windows/system32/drivers/pcmcia.sys I have v5.1.2600.2180 . Maybe an earlier or later version is required???



Any help will be gladly accepted!

Thanks Paul

The usual correct way to install any PCMCIA cardbus wireless adaptor is to install the software first and only insert the card when the software install is finished or when a prompt appears asking you to do so. If you've been inserting the card first then trying to install the software after that, you will run into problems. If you are already aware of how to to do it properly, perhaps you are not using the latest driver ?. It's now at version 7, released 30th May 2007, here: (scroll to the bottom of the list for latest driver): http://www.belkin.co...?...29&scid=283

There's also a user manual here in case you did not get one with the card (adobe reader required): http://www.belkin.co...F5D7010_man.pdf

Thanks for the reply,

I uninstalled the card in device manager and re-booted. downloaded the v7 file from the link, ran set-up, and the Belkin utility installed just fine..... but not the driver.

Device manager shows it under other devices as a yellow question mark, with a smaller exclamation mark -Ethernet Controller

and says: This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.

(wizard then tells you to insert the disc, which I don't have, or searches the internet and finds nothing)

I've tried uninstal - re-boot - re-install a few times, but no joy.

Maybe theres a problem with the card itself.... cos an Ethernet controller it is not!

Thanks again for trying to help tho :whistling:
