BSOD ever since I used Belkin F5D8053 N Draft Adapter
Posted on 2008-10-31
I have been banging my head on a wall of late.. I built my own gaming machine, and it works a beaut running Vista 64 Ulitamate.
I was using a 10m Ethernet Cabel to connected me to my router, then I decided to go for the New up and coming Wireless format N Draft to get rid of the pesky cable leading out of one room across the hall way and into another.
I purchased the F5D8053 N Draft Adapter (which came with the Belkin Router) and since then, my computer has been throwing hissy fits. Between Blue Screen of death's and the computer freezing up and screen going blank.
To add to that the data corruption rate is rediculous... If i attempted to download a file more than say... 5MB Im garunteed that file will be corrupt. I also have a Mac... which connects wirelessley (legacy device) to the belkin router, no problems at all (as I have come to expect from my Mac)
Event Log is no help at all. Virus Scans, Hijack this, AdAware, Spyware, Diskchk, uninstall reinstall nothign seems to work.
Even attmepting to load the router page it self is causing the browser (both IE and Safari on the Vista machine) to load the page with errors. showing sauce code rather than the graphics.
I have opened the case and put everythign back together to make sure that its not a lose connection... no effect. Belkin only have the drivers that came with the CD and their support forums are no help. To add to this other reseller sites have had customer reviews saying that hey are getting BSOD's witht his piece of crap as well.
I downloaded the Debugger from Microsoft but get symbol errors when running the MEMORY file, the symbol file is 217MB long so no chance that will download succesfully (I tried 3 times)
If you require any further info please ask, but im desperatly wanting to get this fixed.
thanks for you help
