Play was a misprice from £23.99.

Play was a mis-price!, Don't vote cold as it actually looks a good deal!

Good find and unlike play.com, I expect Amazon will deliver.

If you are looking to buy this one for Vista I will certainly recommend it.

NO

it got so pretty horrible reviews on amazon and i'm not surprised i wouldn't touch a belkin product with a barge poll.

I have had one for ages. I don't think it's very good, but for that price it is a good deal.

I have 2 of these and find they can be quite temperamental - some days they will work fine but others they will lose connection a lot and I have to do the dreaded right-click repair action quite a lot. Sometimes I have to reset my computer and router to get back online.

I also have a belkin G+ router that works fine with other equipment like a laptop and my Wii connects to it fine every time which makes me believe that these adapters are to blame - my advise is to avoid! :-(

The mispriced Belkin F5D7051 125g adapter on play.com was a newer/faster version of this so might work better.

Voted hot, I believe I paid £20 a few months back for one from Currys, and I needed one for my brother (but wasn't prepared to pay £20 again, considering the PC had only cost £30 itself), so I've bought it too.

:-D

I'm with allyo - I had one and it performed pretty badly, reception was rubbish compared to my Buffalo laptop card.

But, a very cheap offer so still a good deal.

Just to confirm though in case anyone is wondering, this is NOT Vista compatible.

i use it with vista......who told you it's not vista compatible ?

Ignoring what it says on the Belkin website and in the manual, I plugged an 'old' Belkin F5D7050uk into my new desktop PC running Vista HP without installing any Belkin software. Vista recognised it as a WiFi dongle and installed some generic WiFi chipset drivers which function adequately. (Sorry, I can't be more specific about which drivers Vista installed right now as I'm not at that particular PC.)

It does occasionally suffer from the Vista 'cannot regain Wireless Connection after waking from sleep' bug, although I can then right click the network icon in the system tray and select 'Diagnose and Repair'. I also don't think its breaking any connection performance records, but it does establish and maintain a connection to my home LAN and internet via a BTHome hub.

That said, 'your mileage may vary' (as they say). Or to put it another way: caveat emptor.

ryoooh

From trying the one I currently have on a computer running Vista (same model - F5D7050uk), and it being somewhere on the website that it doesn't support Vista (the link I can't find right now though).

2 tips for a better USB Wifi experience:

1) The software usually sucks. Sometimes an upgrade will fix it, sometimes you're better off using whatever your OS can sort out for you. Try sticking it into your PC without the driver disk and see if it sorts itself out (someone has already suggested this, but it's a good idea ).

2) Your PC will shield a USB dongle pretty well - get a USB extension and place the dongle away from your PC and monitor. If it's stuck directly into the back of your PC, you'll dramatically reduce your range and connection speed in most cases.

Well technically you could stick it into one of the USB slots at the front like you would a Maxdrive. Wouldn't work though, but you can physically connect it!

I'm certain this didn't help you!

We have been running up to three of these at my girlfriends place and they have been 101% reliable. £30 each when I bought them about 9 months ago!!

They later posted Vista drivers for it.
belkin.com/uk/…d=0

New products are ver 3 & ver 4.
Vista driver available for both.

How does this compare to a PCI card which you insert into a PC motherboard? Would they both have the same coverage?
