Actually, setting that up was very easy too but since it’s not recognized as Airport, you have to make sure to do the extra configurations so you automatically connect on start-up. I needed to purchase a second one for my other Mac and this is where my aggravation really begins. The SSID has to be identical on all wireless devices. Careful not to jerk the wire, slip the antenna out so that you have the metal plate by itself with the plastic base. Feb 17, Posts:

Belkin F5D NIC as Airport card in a M… – Apple Community

Thu Mar 10, 6: Tue May 03, 7: Belikn left out a step? It will do better right-side up. So I returned it and looked around for a v1,2, or 4. I have one of these cards.

May 27, 9: Remove the two screws holding the circuit board to the metal mounting plate. It too has the SMA f5f7000 and it might have the Broadcom chipset.


Using other than Airport card in G4 tower?

Belkin needs to decide which way to go and correct their online documentation and tech support people. I can run the application, but it doesn’t see the d5d7000.

I was faced with version 4. I think you’ll get some overlap with those two. It kinda sounds like you just don’t have the network login settings correct, in my opinion. I don’t have access to a PC so I can’t check the version. If you expect this to show up as an Airport Card with the RT drivers, forget it. Download Belkin’s from their version 3. May 6, 5: I only selected the 5. Some stores carry this version but I did not get my hands on one.

Can you see the card in the System profiler or not? This is the only unit I’ve seen that lists OSX compatibility on the box.

Nothing much these days that will fit the Airport card slot however there are plenty of other options to choose from. Look for the Belkin network application in the applications folder and run it, it takes a minute for the SSID to show up in the list.


I like to keep my system as Apple only as I can. I bought the “new” version in the white box.

Mac compatible USB Wireless options. And if you are looking for a wireless card, cheaper than Airport, faster, and just as easy It is a great card. Any idea if the version is identifiable from the box? Let me summarize belkib test results below. However I did get it working with the 11g-RT Drivers provided at this f57000 http: That’s ok since all you need to do is squeeze the plastic base enough to pop it out and rotate it.

The Belkin model in question on the other thread was F5D Your post is not very clear at all. Worked great for me.
