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.
Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card F5D7000: Wireless connectivity for your desktop PC
31 January 2010
Summary: Introduction I bought this item with my previous PC when wireless networking was relatively new. I also knew very little about the technology at the time but as I was moving my PC into my newly built study, I had 2 choices, either go wireless or pay Virgin £75 to move my wired connection. As someone who doesn't like spending money at the best of times, I decided to take the plunge and go wireless. This product cost me £25 when I bought it.
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.

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

Summary: I am network system operator at several big companies in Hungary, so I have seen weird stuff, but this card gave me something new! I have bought this card along with a Belkin 54G plus wireless router. The router works fine with 2 laptops, but I always lost connection with the desktop, that has a Belkin 54G wlan card inside. (Other peers are ok in the meantime). If I let win xp repair connection, it usually gets working, but not always.
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
