Topic: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers

It appears there's no win7 driver (nor vista/win8) only XP, I tried using the SAD with the x 86 WLAN pack but it didn't help.

Its a wireless pre n adaptor that goes in a pcmcia slot (the pcmcia card is picked up by Microsoft update but the adaptor can't find drivers.)  I couldn't get the hardware tool from here, no links working !!! so I looked inside the XP drivers from here … e:Software, Drivers %26 Firmware

stupid .... the space between Software, Drivers    in link above are part of the address, this site takes the space and puts the code tags in the wrong place breaking it, Drivers %26 Firmware

in the inf it says its an

[Manufacturer] [Airgo]
; Display Name         DDInstall Section   hardware id
; ------------           -----------------   -----------
%Belkin.DeviceDesc%   = Airgo.ndi,         PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_80101799
%Belkin.DeviceDesc%   = Airgo.ndi,         PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB

is there any drivers that will work ?

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers

Most importantly, what chip is in it?
  One way to deduce is via the original driver.
  Another is via pci-ids_ucw_cz or databases from Ray Hinchliffe's wonderful work SIV.
    In linux, "lspci -nn -b" works well in Terminal.
The most risky yet the most certain method, is visual verification via manual teardown.

Quote of pci-ids_ucw_cz:
"17cb  Airgo Networks, Inc.
    0001  AGN100 802.11 a/b/g True MIMO Wireless Card
        1385 5c00  WGM511 Pre-N 802.11g Wireless CardBus Adapter
        1737 0045  WMP54GX v1 802.11g Wireless-G PCI Adapter with SRX
    0002  AGN300 802.11 a/b/g True MIMO Wireless Card
        1385 6d00  WPNT511 RangeMax 240 Mbps Wireless CardBus Adapter
        1737 0054  WPC54GX4 v1 802.11g Wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SRX400"

I think we have already deduced what fabless chipmaker's is in it?

How about Alienware drivers? … aspx?os=WV
  d'oh.  That seems to contain AGN300 drivers.

    The linux driver seems to lack some features. … pset_table
      quote:  "driver never completed, abandoned"
      quote from agnx link:  "agnx is a mac80211 driver for Airgo AGNX00 wireless chips."

see: … ntry124720
Quote of mobilenvidia:  "Not good news, there were no drivers made for Vista let alone Win7"

It might be like the Linksys WPC54GX, as it used an AirGo AGN100 chipset apparently.
Filename:  WNIhdd*
     see:  DP_WLAN_wnt5_x86-32_1501171\D\W\L\NETANI.INF (& B, & B\9)

Linksys seems completely useless to me, as they list no driver for either HW revision. … rs/WPC54GX

Thanks to Softpedia for the OEM link. … 5/5554/0/1 …

The latest i have in the packs is {DriverVer = 02/04/2005,}, so if you can find something updated, i will include & credit your username in changelogs.
  Perhaps Internet Archive might still have some of those old pages, and drivers, archived.

Quote of botus:  "so I looked inside the XP drivers from here"
  What did you find?

     Please post links to any drivers you find for any AirGo wifi chipset.
Use the hwids_tool link in my signature, and do try "lspci -nn -b" in Terminal from LinuxMint, or similar, so that you can find the all-important SUBSYS value.

One of these drivers could work with 32bit Vista or Seven.  We might need to find a signed executable, though  requirements were retarded in 32bit compared to 64bit, iirc.

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers lists the latest Airgo driver for linksys was v1.5.0.86, though xp is incorrectly listed for that particular file.

                                               *** Ding, Ding, Ding ***

we may have a winner here!  smile

Netgear has {DriverVer   = 06/30/2005,} available for PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB !
It also includes {DriverVer = 10/28/2005,} 32bit support for  PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0002&SUBSYS_6D001385
(Yikes!  That driver has something called "Heartbeat Threshold (5.0 GHz)" in it's reg entries.  WiFi HeartBleed?  At least it's not an automatous & self-propogating WiFi virus, though.  No, just kidding; it looks like it was ahead of it's time for a chipset. "240.0 Mbps" "NETGEAR RangeMax(TM) 240 Wireless Notebook Adapter WPNT511")

Dump & archive your firmware, First, if at all possible (just in case)!

Post some drivers for the remaining HWID's if possible, if you like.
  It would be good to complete the NT5 DriverPacks.
    It suffices as NT6 extreme Legacy branch of DriverPacks, for now.

  There are even a couple of signed 64b drivers in the [Nightlies], believe it or not.
  That might be at least partly why some have problems in PE.

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers … .0.80a.exe

Looks like that driver could benefit from a UDA-style driver architecture for both NT5 & NT6 32bit.
  Will post a test-pack if possible, & see if any files are signed, other than the Security Catalog.

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers

Thanks for your comprehensive help TechDud, the PC's round at my parents will try and look over the weekend

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers

TechDud to the rescue again, thank you !!!

Alienware driver you mentioned
Airgo Networks AGN300 driver doesn't look suitable so didn't try
From that driver, EngineVersion=

Netgear one is suitable but its unsigned and (other than that installed without a fight) as you found shows the same detail for version and build date you say
Netgear has {DriverVer   = 06/30/2005,} available for PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB

under winXP with belkin driver installed
PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB&REV_01\4&2D732E57&0&0058: Belkin Wireless Pre-N Notebook Network Card

Under win7 without a driver
PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB&REV_01\5&25814920&0&0020F0: Ethernet Controller

under win7 uing Netgear driver you found
PCI\VEN_17CB&DEV_0001&SUBSYS_000117CB&REV_01\5&25814920&0&0020F0: Airgo Networks True MIMO (tm) Wireless Adapter

Re: [REQ] Belkin F5D8010 v1 no win 7 drivers

If that driver was signed, it might be best to keep that, but if you are looking for improvements, try the driver ..\Ai\NETANI.inf (v1.5.5.6) in the NT5 WLAN pack. … 554#p58554

note:  changed name of topic to "[REQ]" to ensure this driver eventually makes it's way into a NT6 driver pack.
