driver for belkin network card

  rickwoo 12:29 11 Dec 2005

I have been trying to install a belkin desktop network pci card, F5D5000uk on my computer. It detects the card, but does not find the driver from the cd supplied. My computer originally ran on Windows 98, but i upgraded it to XP a while ago. It has been suggested that I need the original 98 disc to complete the download of the driver. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

If you've upgraded then you don't need the Win 98SE CD. However from personal experience I've never needed extra drivers for NICs under XP. Are you sure it's not working?

Try removing the NIC from the Device Manager and rebooting.

I've tried to reboot and reinstall, still no success. Do you know where I can get a driver for XP from. Mike

Belkin sites doesn't have a driver to download. All the NICs i have installed under XP use the native drivers with XP - no need for a CD or any other drivers.

Did you remove the card from the Device Manager before rebooting??

See click here

"Xp detects it and automatically installs, other op systems need the disk"

Yes I removed it before rebooting. Are the drivers generic or specific to belkin? If so is there any way of finding the driver. Do XP have them built in already? Mike

XP should have the drivers built in (native drivers)

This is a link the the manual for the F5D5000 on Belkins site click here

"After installing the network PCI card, XP will auto install the correct driver automatically."
