802.11g not available on Belkin F5D7000 PCI card

  1. I have setup a wireless connection from a Laptop with a built-in
    connection and a desktop with a F5D7000 card. Both systems use Windows
    XP. I can only get 11Mbps, even with an "excellent" signal.

    When I configure the card for ad-hoc connections using the belkin
    utility, the option for 802.11b or 802.11b/g is greyed out and only
    802.11b is available. Is this an unpublished limitation of the Belkin

    Am I using the latest driver? The box says it is a F5D7000uk, version
    3000uk. The Belkin site does not admit to the uk suffix. It also offers
    drivers only for versions 2, 3 or 4. I am using the F5D700_V3.exe

    This is a limit enforced for ad-hoc networking for this particular card, I
    believe (some user's claim only to be able to achieve 11Mbps in ad-hoc mode
    even with 802.11g enabled, so there may be some logic to this). If you
    connect to an 802.11g enabled AP you should be able to utilise this mode.

    All the best,

    Ryan Younger.
