  1. I just installed a Belkin 54g wireless network at a friends.
    DSL from antenna on the roof --> wireless router/4-port switch
    1 Centrino type laptop --> works fine
    1 laptop with PCMCIA wireless adapter --> works fine
    1 PC with USB wireless adapter Belkin F5D7051uk --> irky problem

    I need to use the Belkin Connect-utility (select network, click on Connect) every time the PC boots. A proper profile has been created.
    Is this normal? Can this be automated at bootup?

    When I hook it up direct via CAT5 cable, the network is always ON and works perfectly.
