Installed Belkin Wireless Card needs to run Wirless Card Country Selection to pick UK each time i restart my XP machine in order to connect

I've installed a Belkin PCI wireless card on an XP Home SP2 PC, I've tried connecting to a wirless network using both Belkins utility and windows its self. Both reported no wireless networks found, so i looked in the program files for belkin and ran the "wireless card country selection" program which defaults to United States. After selecting United Kingdom from the list the belkin utility restarts and both windows and the belkin utility detect the wireless network, and i can use either of them to connect to the network.

How do i set the software to stay on UK settings??? And yes these are the latest drivers for my F5D7000uk card V3000

please someone help as this is a real annoyance.

I've had the same problem before with this card. If you choose the "use windows to configure my wireless network settings" option then each time you log off or reboot the Belkin utility will default the card to the United States settings. Try setting the car to UK settings using the country selection utility, then connect to the wireless network using belkins utility. Don't use Windows to configure the connection. try rebooting now and the country setting should remain as UK, and automatically connect to your wireless network.

I'm not sure why Belkins software does reset the country selection when using windows to configure the network settings, but this fixed the problem for me.
