N1 Belkin Expresscard

  jbam 21:22 31 Mar 2008

I'm trying to instal a Belkin N1 expresscard on a dell vostro 1700 running Vista business.

Drivers are installed, message then appears asking for card to be inserted.

(When the card is pluged in there are no lights on to indicate either power or network).

Laptop says it has found new hardware and needs to install the driver.

The pc then goes through the process of installing the driver only to tell me no card can be found and the drivers will not be installed.

Are you pluging the card with the pc on

You have to plug in the card with the pc off and than power up the pc

You will damage the card by plug it in with the power on

In other words install the driver power down the computer plugin the card and power up

the computer

XP will than see card and install the driver

To remove the card power down computer and remove card



You will damage the card

Have tryed this.

Iam runnung vista, and the paper work in the box says it is not vista compatible, the driver on the belkin website says the drivers for vista are pre release ones.

Belkin also make an N expresscard this is what there website says.

****This product will not be compatible with Windows Vista at the time of initial production. Future versions of
this product will be compatible with Windows Vista.

How will i know when the card will be compatable with vista?

what is the difference between N & N1?

The driver must be a Belkin issue driver

Email Belkin and request the driver
