View Full Version : [all variants] Belkin F5D7000 (version 20) - Driver needed.

June 19th, 2008, 03:47 AM
I'm trying to get my Belkin F5D7000 wireless G card operating. I followed a couple solutions on here using the ndiswrapper and and few suggested drivers (rtl8185, bcmwl5/bcmwl5a).

It turns out that for the specific version of the card I have (version 20) it requires a driver, blkwgdv7, that is only available from the installation CD.

I no longer have the installation CD. Is it possible to get this driver somewhere (or from someone) or is there an alternate driver?

Can you get it here? http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D7000&aid=6001&scid=221 I downloaded version 2xxx. Although the file is an .exe, I did, in a terminal:
cabextract f5d7000_v2_uk.exeThe needed .inf and .sys were extracted. You card, by the way, is not a version 2xxx. The file I grabbed is for a Realtek chipset.
Extracting cabinet: f5d7000_v2_uk.exe
extracting _SETUP~2.EXE
extracting rt2500.cat
extracting Rt2500.sys
extracting Rt25009x.sys
extracting setup.exe
