Card blue screens and has bad drivers

Overstock
19 December 2006
  • Summary: This card made my pc blue screen. I even tried with a new image and nothing but the OS and this card, and still would cause it to blue screen. Went to Belkin website and downloaded there wireless G drivers and it wasn't even compatible with this card. Also, the card would work for a few minutes and some how drop signal, even though my signal would be very good to excellent. I switched to a old wireless usb and now everything is fine and no blue screen.

Budget wireless card

  • Excerpt: "...the better functionality. Does the Belkin 54Mbps Wireless PCI card The first, and probably only advantage of this wireless adapter is the fact that it has a PCI interface rather than USB 2.0. This means less clutter on your PC desk, more free ports, and normally means a higher quality product. It supports 802.11b and g, so there are few issues of network compatibility, except security, which I'll come on to. Unfortunately, the device does not deal ...
  • Pros: Cheap, fairly fast, and useable
  • Cons: Poor reliability, poor installation method, and lacks WPA and WPA - PSK support

  • Excerpt: "...from my review of the Belkin wireless router, this is the piece of kit at the other end of the link. The PCI Desktop Card is whats required to allow the PC to communicate with the router. This product cost me £25 when I bought it.

  • Excerpt: "...network card along with the belkin wireless g router . Installation was easy enough and the instructions were clear and straightforward. As the card is situated in the pc itself it is discreetly out of the way. The card has a lifetime guarantee and so there are no issues with replacement due to failure. I found this adapter to be quite unreliable with frequent breaks in the signal occuring. The signal strength was also not that good the ...
  • Pros: good brand, lifetime guarantee, easy to install, good customer support

  • Excerpt: "The belkin wireless card allows you to connect to the internet and browse other computers on your home or office network without the need for cables. The card is robust and has a good design, and the omni-directional screw-in antenna is handy and really a must for any wireless card. This is a 54g card, capable of sending and receiving data at speeds up to 54mbps, which is the max speed for modern 802.11g wireless networks. Whereas there is no ...
  • Pros: Good Status Information, Omni - directional Antenna

The installation is very easy, just fit the card in any spare PCI card on your PC.

You can use the network wizzard in XP to set up your network, ...
