I purchased this Belkin PCMCIA wireless card in January 2010 and 6 months later it just stopped working. I attempted to contact the Seller star_eshop via Amazon but received no reply. I then attempted to call them on the mobile number that they give for their Customer Services and this just gives you a voice mail telling you to email them on a Yahoo email address. I did this and they haven't responded to this either. This company are a bunch of cowboys and you'd do well to avaid buying anything from them at all costs.

Reviews suggest this card works under Ubuntu but my 12.04 install says "missing firmware" and the Additional Drivers utility offers no downloads. Doubtless it could be made to work if it did so under earlier releases of Ubuntu but I felt no need to spend time on this as I also have a TP-Link card that actually does work out of the box (lights aside):

I had trouble installing this item on a windows XP (without service packs) using the correct driver. Belkin tried to help but we made no progress.

It installed immediately on a Linux based system, where the driver appears to be built into the operating system.

Belkin were not able to explain why it wouldn't install on the basic windows XP.

Please note that Microsoft do not provide support for basic XP; SP1 or SP2. SP3 will not load onto XP basic without the earlier service packs.

If someone out there knows better, please let me know.

I followed the poorly detailed installation guide and got the power indicator to light up on the card. I then launched the Belkin software to set up the card, only to find that it could not detect any networks. I have two wireless routers in different locations in my home. Both can be picked up with very strong signals from the four other wireless networking devices in the house, and my neighbours' wireless networks can also be seen from these devices, so there should be no reason for this card to find absolutely no wireless devices.

So . . . I searched online and found the real instruction manual in PDF format, no thanks to the terribly designed Belkin support site. First I looked to see if it mentioned any settings in the control program that I may have missed. The program pictured and described in this manual does not resemble the program I installed from the driver CD in any way. It was obvious that they had the same function and, therefore, I was reading the correct section of the manual, but it looked very different and the one I had running in front of me didn't have half the options mentioned in the instructions.

First I assumed it was just a different version so I went to the Belkin website and downloaded it from there. The copy I downloaded was identical to the one on the CD so this didn't help. After having another quick browse through the tabs of the program I noticed an "Advanced options" button. Getting my hopes up, I clicked it expecting to see something that looked like the screenshots in the manual. No such luck. Either this button requires some kind of additional framework that Belkin didn't bother to mention or it's just not programmed to do anything.

Next, I turned to the troubleshooting section of the manual.

Initially I had trouble in loading the software using the Belkin set up wizard.
Reverted to using Windows (XP) "new hardware found" and the Belkin software CD.
It is now working very well and I am entirely happy with my purchase.

If you're looking for a cheap way to have WiFi on a old laptop, this card is perfect. No problem at all during the setup.
I've been using for more than 1 month and I haven't lost connection nor had problem with the card.

I have a relatively elderly Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop, with Ubuntu 10.04. This machine had no wireless capability, so I decided to obtain a Belkin wireless card via Amazon. I inserted the card and, with ethernet connection to broadband plugged in, I switched on. Ubuntu offered a suitable driver download.
The only issue arising was the need to set a password for the "default keyring", but Googling quickly provided a solution.
The card has performed faultlessly since installation.

No problems with this wireless network adaptor CARDBUS. Easy to install. Worked first time and has continued to work since installation. Wish all problem solutions were as easy to solve as this one! If you are thinking of getting a wireless network adapter CARDBUS, get this one!
