    I am very pleased with this wireless adapter and found it to be just what I needed. I choose this product because my router is also Belkin, and so I thought this might be more compatible than a different brand. It's very easy to physically install. Just insert the CD it comes with, follow a very quick and easy installation process, and then insert the adapter into your USB port when it tells you to. That's all there is to it. I did have problems initially with connecting to the internet; it displayed the "Limited Or No Connectivity" error message and wouldn't connect. After trying a couple of things I simply turned off the computer, unplugged the router, waited for three minutes, and then turned everything back on. To my astonishment, it WORKED, and I've been connected to the internet ever since. The speed and performance is just rated as "Good" on the box (out of "Good," Better," or "Best"), but I think the speed is just fine and I found it to be more than adequate to suit my needs. I hope you find this review useful. (:

    Great Little Wireless Card

    I purchased this wireless card about six months ago after purchasing a new PC. We live in a three level townhome. The router is located on the bottom level and the older PC which is located on the top level get's excellent signals. Every now and then it will slow down, but I basically do are refresh and it starts to work just fine. I also have a laptop and when we hooked the router up, it picks up with no problem. I can use the laptop on all levels and any area in the house. Getting ready to purchase an HP that is not wireless, but a great computer, so I will be purchasing a second Belkin for this computer which will be located in the master bedroom. The only thing is I wished I knew about using the Windows instead of the software that came with the Belkin. Perhaps I will see if it works with Windows 7 on the new computer. P.S. I am a middle age woman who is not a computer guru and was able to get this up and running in 10 minutes. Follow the directions and it will work. Our router is a N - Gear, so Belkin works perfectly with it!

    There are some reviews from people having problems with dropped connections, etc. Here's a general rule of thumb for all Windows wireless peripherals -- DON'T INSTALL THE 3RD PARTY WIRELESS CONTROLLER SOFTWARE. It never works and always conflicts with the default Windows wireless controller. So to get the Belkin F5D7050 working seamlessly, insert the CD that comes in the box, but DON'T install anything. Then plug in the Belkin USB device. When Windows starts looking for a driver, choose the option for specifying a location and choose your CD-ROM drive. Windows will find the driver, install it, recognize the device, automatically detect wireless networks using the default Windows wireless controller and you'll be connected with no drops, issues, etc.

    I saw some other negative reviews of this product, and I thought i'd give my $.02. I bought two of these adapters for my kids' cyberschool computers. The installation is straightforward on WinXP, but you MUST install the software FIRST! Using these cards with a linksys wrt54g router, my kids can use the computers in the basement, and the router is on the 2nd floor at 48MB/s. Not bad! I will buy these again when I need a quick networking solution.

    Overall this item is very user friendly. I simply plugged it in my Windows XP device wizard detected it and prompted for the cd. after doing that it installed the drivers with out a problem. The big plus is that it came with a utility program that allows you to manage your wi fi networks via the XP network wizard or through the Belkin utility program ( either works very well ) i have had no problems andin fact recomended it to a few of my friends

    Moving farther from the router necessitated buying a usb adapter. I ended up with this one and I am not pleased with it. I installed the software first as per the directions but could not get it to work for several days. I finally unplugged it from its stand and into my computer. Strike one: the stand doesn't work. The adapter will randomly disconnect from the router and I have to open up the dialog box to reconnect it. Strike two: disconnecting. After owning it for 9 months, it has started to not reconnect using the dialog box, at which point, I have to unplug it and plug it back in and occasionally restart my comp. Strike three: an overall hassle. It's out, I'm buying a different one. I have had A+ training in computer repair and networking. I have a pretty good idea about what I'm doing. I think this is a horrible product and would strongly recommend a different wireless adapter.

    I have had one of these for quite some time (an older version) and it works just fine. I decided to get another one (this current version) for my computer in my room. The computer in my room is an older one so I upgraded its OS to WinXP and tested my older one on it. Signal strength was low (11 mbp/s) but it worked just fine and whenever it lost connection it went right back on. I expected this as the indoors range for 802.11g is 40m. So I decided to purchase another newer one for my computer upstairs. I installed it and it asked me to plug in the adapter - and the light turned solid green while it should be blinking randomly. I tried to connect to the internet and it stayed at minimal connectivity for about 3 mins and then it would absolutley not connect again and its picking up a network with no SSID that has a good signal strength and I cannot connect to that. I would recommend finding an older version or steer clear of this. I am going to try MIMO G Plus and a Linksys. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT! IT ONLY CAUSES STRESS!

    I purchased this wireless adapter in order to make my computer system totally wireless. After two hours on the phone with Belkin customer service, I was totally frustrated. Their Indian accents were quite difficult to understand and when I asked to speak to an American customer service rep, I was informed that there were NONE. It is my belief that all customer service departments overseas must connect you to an American counterpart upon your request. This requirement is not being fulfilled by Belkin. My adapter was defective and would not work no matter how many times I followed the instructions given by the CS agents. The call kept being dropped and I must have spoken to at least 4 or more persons. Finally, I gave up, made a 50 mile round trip to return the unit to the store. I will continue shopping for a wireless adapter, but I won't be using Belkin and possibly not WalMart based solely on this experience.

    With my skills and knowledge, I thought I would have no problems making this work. I have a Belkin router and all other wifi's work (they are built into the laptops). My mother in law came back for the summer, with her Gateway laptop, XP operating system and had lost the wifi I got her last year. She doesn't stream and only uses her computer for email. I got it to connect BUT it could NOT find an address. I manually put everything in and it still wouldn't pull up a website. I called Belkin tech support and after almost 2 hours on the phone, they told me to call Gateway because XP had a "blocking" and I needed a 3rd party wireless utility. Gateway said they won't assist without a fee. No information on line helped. Sure, I only spent $13.00 on this, but now I have to spend another $50 to get a wireless USB Network adapter that will get her on line. I lost 3 days working on this not to mention the grief and aggravation it has caused. Please, all the advise and praise for this product must be coming from Belkin and WalMart employees, don't waste your time and money on this product. It needs to be taken off the market.

    I bought this wireless adapter in hopes it would work on my Ubuntu 10.04 computer. I had tried a couple others that would not work without a great amount of work. However, I plugged this one in and it instantly connected - nothing else was reuired. It is very nice to have finally found a wireless adapter for Ubuntu and it is very reasonably priced.
