    We've got some Belkin cards here at work (F5D7010 v3) and they are truely and honestly the worst hardware I've ever used. After 3 months, the laptops they're used in (a variety of different platforms and PCMCIA controllers) all sporadically return the same result - "not enough resources for device to start" or something to that effect.

    We've just given up on them, and now use Sweex USB ones (equally cheap, but they do actually work). Only problem for us is that if you use a USB one, they have to be configured each time you connect it to a different USB port - not much of an issue at home, but annoying at work with 40+ laptops for the kids to setup.

    Not much of an answer, sorry - more a shout and a scream at Belkin
