  1. hey,
    I just installed windiws xp pro on my laptop. When I wanted to set up an wireless internet connection with a Belkin f5d7010 ethernet adapter, it wouldn't work. So a went to device maneger and saw a problem with the ethernet adapter, my laptop wouldn't recognize the drivers of the ethernet adapter, so I reinstalled them but it still won't work. Can you help me?

    You should be able to find the ethernet driver on the web site from the computer or motherboard vendor, for your model computer. If you're still having problems, what's the make/model of your PC?
    List any Problem devices
    • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
    • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
    Generate and attach a DirectX report
    • Click Start->Run, enter dxdiag and click OK
      ===> If you’re running 32 bit Windows, dxdiag will launch on its own
      ===> If you’re running 64 bit Windows, you’ll see 64-bit DxDiag. Click it to launch the 64-bit version of dxdiag
    • Notice progress in lower left window corner
    • When done, click Save Information button and save as a text file to your Desktop
    • Click the Upload a File button to upload and attach the file to your next post
