So I plugged an F5D7000 Belkin desktop wireless adapter into my desktop. Here is a picture of it:


I did a Google search and found the drivers. I installed the latest version - (F5D7000 - Driver - Version 8xxx), and the NIC is still unrecognized as per the next screenshot:Software

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this working? I'm running Windows XP SP3 32-bit.

(I have taken a screenshot but without network connectivity I can't email it or post it anywhere and I don't have a USB stick.)

click on details and look for the hardware ID. Use this ID to see which chip the card has and google for drivers for this chip. – magicandre1981 Dec 18 '12 at 14:26

It's possible you tried to install the wrong driver. It looks like you have a v1xxx, which has a different driver from the rest. The link here should help: Try that first driver listed and see if that helps.
