Previously I’ve been using Linksys and Prolink Wifi adapter. I have to say that Linksys did give me weird difficulties and end up not using it at all. On the other hand Prolink has yet to give any significant problems

Recently, I was looking another USB Wifi to be used on new Dell Inspiron desktops. Knowing that Belkin gave a Lifetime Warranty, I decided to give it a try. So there I was, buying 2 units of Belkin model F5D7050 ver. 3000ak and promptly went home to install them on the new PCs.

At the beginning, I thought it would only probably take 15 minutes to get it set and running. To my shock, I ended 3 to 4 hours getting it installed on Windows XP Service Pack 2. The driver came in the CD just won’t work as expected.

I had basically downloaded different version of drivers, mix and match them together to make this adapter working. In this post, I will describe how to download and install my mixed driver and finally followed by activating the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC).
