Belkin wifi adapter won't install driver,it is asking for notebook card


Likes # 0

Hello,today my Belkin 7050 wifi adapter arrived.I went through the install procedure from the cd,and when asked to plug in the adapter,I got the message asking for a notebook card,which I haven't got.It then told me that the drivers aren't installed.

The device isn't showing in device manager.I called Belkin support but all the could suggest was that the device was to try it in another computer.I am unable to do this because the communal computer needs administrator rights to install programs etc.I am currently on that pc now to send this.

I will have to top up my"3" dongle again to read replies.Please can anyone help?I am currently on limited funds and cannot affored to keep topping up my dongle

I have just been reading an article about a problem with device manager not being able to show any network connections after installing SP3.

There is a hotfix link in the article which may be worth your while trying. It is aimed primarily at the problem that may exist because of an anti-virus programme that was running.
