      Adapters arrived yesterday, picked them up today. Plugged in, got straight away connected to the network. Limited or no connectivity and no internet however. Called up sky, met a nice Irish woman who went through everything in her folder in 40 minutes flat. Still nothing. Gonna reformat the PC now.

      Belkin : Support : F5D7050 Drivers

      Above is the link to update the adapters driver in case you are using Vista.

      I still think that it is an encryption problem, see below


      Belkin : Support : F5D7050 – Not able to connect to a secured network (128-WEP).


      Don't forget that you should rename your network before you change the encryption setting from Wpk to wep, not sure why but I had a similar problem with the gaming adapter and when I did this and it asked for the encryption key the router generated it worked fine.

      You can tell which encryption the adapter can use when you try to install using the disc that came with it and drop down the encryption options box.
      Mine is a F5D7330.

      If you need help setting this up gives me a shout
      Hi mate, I've bought the F5D7330 wireless gaming adapter but it won't play ball. I hooked it up to my laptop and installed the ssid & network key but the wireless light didn't come on. then it came on after a bit when connected to the xbox. I set the xbox to auto DHCP but no connection. Then I got into the belkin setup and changed the ip to follow on from the other bits on the network (.1 , .2 etc) but still nothing. Please help before i axe my router.
