Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin N150 Won't Work / What To Fix This?
Jul 27, 2011
I have a belkin n150 usb wireless adapter that doesn't seem to work. I have searched for a solution on this and other forums, but the advice is either too confusing/long for my noob brain, or applies to older versions and no longer works.
I am running ubuntu 11.04, the usb device shows up on lsusb so I know it's there, but I can't get it to work. I have installed ndiswrapper and put in the driver from the cd, didn't work. I downloaded the RT2870 linux drivers, tried sudo make and sudo make install and that didn't work (I probably didn't install correctly).
I tried getting a Belkin USB Wireless adapter:N150 to work in a fresh installation of 10.4 with no success. After reading several forum posts I tried both solutions with ndiswrapper and the XP driver and with the Ralink native driver with no luck.
Code: lsusb Bus 005 Device 008: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
I joined this forum so I can say my experience with the crappy belkin N150 router. It appears you need to run the setup cd under windows to make the router 'see' the modem. Under linux as someone pointed out you can easily enter the router setup from a browser ( enter 192.168.2.1 ) and connect to the router only (wired or wireless connection) but not the internet. Does anyone have any idea what the windows setup is doing to connect the router to the modem and how to do it under linux in the browser?
I've been using Windows all my life (and still have to use it at work) but I made the big leap yesterday and installed Ubuntu on my personal machine (at last). With my "Windows-centric" mind, there are a million things that I still don't get, but I must say the community and forums look quite impressive and easy to access (kudos! ). I am testing this today!My current problem is with the wireless adapter. I have a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter (FSD8053v3) and Belkin, of course, doesn't make linux drivers. When I installed Ubuntu, it recognized it automatically and I could connect to my network, but navigation was very slow so I tried to install Belkin windows drivers using ndiswrapper. It worked immediately, and navigation was very fast. However after a reboot, I lost the connection, I can't even see any of the neighbouring networks.
I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a Samsung N150 Plus for a relative who I've been trying to get to use Ubuntu for ages and want to get it as perfect as possible.I have everything working well except two finger scrolling on the touchpad it's quite buggy and skips about as I scroll with it.how to make the two finger scrolling work correctly?
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
I've got UNE 10.10 installed on a Samsung N150 that uses the RTL8192E for wireless. When the wireless works then it generally works okay, but I'm having problems with reboots and long-running connections. This is different to the mass of posts (mainly from 2009) about the card not working at all, so I started a new thread.Basically, 90%+ of cold boots result in a successful wireless connection, with Network Manager remembering my WPA password.
When the wireless is up then it never obviously drops out, but I've got an app with a long-running connection that seems to disconnect itself occasionally. Looking at Wireshark then it appears that there are a number of retransmits, and a big batch just before it disconnects (which implies that the app is dropping its connection because it thinks the other end disappeared). Running the app on another machine with a different card but through the same release of Ubuntu and the app and the same router doesn't result in retries or drop-outs.On the times when a cold boot doesn't successfully reconnect then it asks for the WPA password, then continues trying, then asks for the WPA password again, then continues trying, then asks...and so on until I rmmod and modprobe the driver.
I originally had problems with the machine refusing to restore after a hibernate/suspend, but this was solved by a tip to rmmod the driver on hibernate/suspend and modprobe it on restore.The wireless will now work okay on some restores, but is more likely to repeat the behaviour described above for the failed cold boot.
I've upgraded to Maverick but now I cannot get my wireless card working. In Lucid it didn't work out of the box, but worked perfectly by wrapping the Windows driver with ndiswrapper.
I noticed when I installed Maverick that wireless is enabled in Network-Manager and it gives me the option to create a wireless network or connect to a hidden network but it's not discovering/showing any of the wireless networks in range! So it seems as though the card is being recognized but the driver isn't working fully...? I tried wrapping the windows drivers, but that didn't change the situation at all.
I have a Samsung N150 netbook with Atheros AR 9285 WiFi card. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it, although this problem happens on other distros too (Network Remix 9.10, OpenSuse 11.2) My wifi card and networks get detected. The problem is when I try to connect to my network, which is protected by WPA key (I don't know if it matters whether it's WPA or not). After I input my network key, the network manager is trying to connect, but obviously cannot, because just prompts me for password again. I can connect without problems to this network from my other computer running WinXP
I'm looking at buying one of the above cards, and was wondering if anyone knew if they worked in master mode (e.g. as an access point). According to the Aircrack-ng site, they support packet injection and monitor mode. Is master mode support solely up to the driver used with the card, or does the card have to physically support it?
I am a brand new user to Ubuntu(just started today). I am trying to get my Belkin Play(F7D4101 is the model number) to work. It shows up when I use the "lsusb" command, and when i install the driver using ndiswrapper it gives me an error along the lines of "hardware is not ready to use".
I just moved to Linux, and I really need some help for my wireless adapter. What I am using is Belkin F6D4050 v2. I think I should use the rt2870sta driver. After 2 days working, my laptop can recognize the wireless adapter now. But it can not find any wireless connections. There are some information. Hope they are useful.
I'm having a slight problem with my new wireless card that I purchased. I installed the firmware and the like and it does work, my computer recognizes it and I can search through my available networks, only thing is though.I cannot connect to any of them. I'm fairly sure it's a problem with it obtaining an ip address though.because it does connect briefly and I read the status and it shows no IP address, but when I connect through wired internet all that information is available. I tried setting my network configuration to static and that didn't help at all. I'm only a week into Ubuntu so this is all still fairy confusing for me.
I am having trouble with getting my desktop to connect to my wireless router.
Here are the specs I currently have: WIreless Brand: Belkin Wireless Model: F5D8055 v1 Wireless Chipset: 050d:825a Ubuntu Version: 10.04.01 LTS Machine Brand: PC Kernal Architecture: 2.6.32-24-generic x86_64
I really am having a problem. I can see wireless networks, but when i try to connect to one, even unsecured, the icon just keeps acting like it is searching for a wifi spot. Im really confused.
I have a new belkin N1 router which I tested in somebody else's flat. It worked fine. When I got home I reset it by pushing a paperclip in the hole for 10+ seconds to erase this flat's internet connection settings (username and password and stuff). After this I plugged it the computer and tried to connect to it (wired connection) using 192.168.2.1 (this is correct for that router, it is not 192.168.0.1). But the browser says it is offline and cannot connect. The lights of the router cycle, the "modem router" light blinks continuously and the others briefly come on and go off again, every few seconds. I tried resetting it again, several times, leaving it off for a few hours, leaving it on for a few hours, etc.
I have just installed 11.04 alongside windows vista. I have been trying to connect my router but it keeps saying disconnected from network. I have ran all of the troubleshooting tips in ubuntu its self and everthing seems in order. is there any settings i need to change on my router or in ubuntu's edit connections programe? I managed to connect to the router once to upgrade from 10.10 to the 11.04 but even before upgrading to 11.04 i had problems connecting to the router.
It worked in 10.04 using ndiswrapper, but the connection was very weak (In Windows, it works perfectly). I blame ndiswrapper and the windows driver for the connection issues.In 10.10 x64, using ndiswrapper does not work. It says hardware present, but iwconfig shows no wlan0 adapter. I downloaded the driver from RealTek's website (rtl8192su) and compiled it. It gave a lot of warnings about integers being out of range, but I ignored them and went on anyway. If you want the exact warnings, I can put them on a pastebin and post the link tonight when I get home from work.
After doing a make install, I plugged in my adapter. As soon as it kicked on, the light on the adapter would blink and the screen would go black with a lone cursor in the top left corner of the screen. The drivers are obviously suspect, since I can make uninstall, plug in the adapter, and continue on with no network.Has anyone gotten this adapter/other adapters with the rtl8192su firmware working in 10.10 using a stock x64 install? It has to be stock or using packages available on the disk since without using the adapter, I have no internet.Maybe I'll try the drivers on 10.04 and see if they're just not compatible with 10.10.
I'm using a Belkin F7D1101 USB adapter for my wireless internet, and I can't get the damn thing to connect. I've installed ndiswrapper, ndisutils, and ndisgtk, then used the latter to install the driver that came with the CD (though I'm sure I'm using the right one, I've tried all the included drivers with no success). The adapter itself is functioning fine, as I've used it on Windows XP with no issues. It's just not communicating with Ubuntu very well. My issue isn't that I can't get it to show up and search for a network (as I've seen on several other posts about this adapter), but that I can't get it to actually connect to my router. Using WEP 40/128, I enter the password, but after about a minute, I'm simply prompted for the password over and over. I've restarted several times, even installed 10.04 just because I had no idea what to try, and no dice.
I have a Compaq AMD64 that has ubuntu 9.04 on one HD that works great. I've installed 10.04 on a separate HD and had problems installing it. I have 10.04 running now but I can't get my wireless card to work. During installation I skipped setting up the wireless network. Now when I boot into the 10.04 partition I cannot get the nm-applet to work. I can't get it onto the task bar and I don't see it anywhere else.
I checked to see what drivers are installed, and since I have no connection with that OS I can't update or DL drivers for it. I'm pretty sure that it is because I skipped setting it up during installation. What do I need to do to get the wireless working now? I checked other threads and none seem to pertain to my situation. Since I have to log into the 9.04 partition, I can't copy/paste outputs very easily.
I have been trying to get my Belkin FD8233-4v3 wireless-n usb adapter to work in Ubuntu since 8.04. It has worked with ndiswrapper under 32-bit (never the 64-bit) versions in the past, but has never been able to be configured directly. It uses the Ralink RT2870 chipset, but cannot seem to be configured using the drivers from the Ralink website.
With Ubuntu 10.04 64-Bit, everything has changed. I have high hopes that this adapter may finally work correctly and without ndiswrapper. As soon as I first booted 10.04, for the first time ever, Ubuntu recognized the IF automatically, reported my wireless router, allowed me to enter my 128-bit WEP hex code and tried to connect up. It is failing miserably, but it is making a valiant effort.
I had a Netgear Wireless USB adapter that got fried (probably because it was about 10 years old lol). It was a B and used to connect at 54 Mbps, but as it got older, was only connecting at 1 or 2 Mbps and would constantly disconnect and reconnect until it finally died.I went out and bought a Belkin Basic Wireless USB Adapter (Model Number: F7D1101). This one is an N and it connects at 150 Mbps when booted into XP, but when booted into Ubuntu 9.04, nothing shows up. It doesn't turn on, the list of networks isn't there.
Could it be that it's not compatible? I plug in the Netgear B and it shows up, connects and disconnects (because it's fried) and shows me a list of connections. But when I plug in the Belkin N, I get absolutely nothing at all. And I forgot how I connected the Netgear so...?By the way, the wireless router is a Netgear N that I got from Comcast Cable, if that helps in any way? Is there something that I need to do in terminal to "turn it on manually" or something?
i am complitly new in Ubuntu and the world of Linux in general, so i said to my self its better late then never, i installed the last one 10.10. but i am having trouble with my wifi usb adapter (BelkinF5D7050 v 1000), the same adapter works perfect under XP in the same PC. when i go to NM i dont see it in the list of network cards "i see just my two other normal network cards + loopback" and i have permanent small "x" on the icon of NM up in the task bar, even if check or uncheck "Enable Networking", it alwayes show a info bubble "you are now offline", here is the result of all the command line that can help getting better view on my problem
I have been using linux for a long time now, but just recently i had to use a wireless network card with it. i was using 10.10 when i noticed that when i had my Belking f5D7050 usb adaptor the computer would load the welcome screen of ubuntu but stuck there doing nothing. so i had to restart it, unplug it and when ubuntu starts with out the adaptor i plug it back in. That way SOMETIMES it works and others doesnt, some times it just crashed when i plug in the adaptor. i decided to wait for 11.4 in case this was fixed on the new version.
Alas! i just switched to 11.4 today, and i got the same problem.
Everything else seems to be working all right with it, as long as it starts working i have no complain about it it just starts to be annoying that i have to force the pc to shut down and then restart it. from lsusb i get this:
Code: Bus 001 Device 009: ID 050d:705c Belkin Components F5D7050 Wireless G Adapter v4000 [Zydas ZD1211B]
I was dual booting with XP and Jackalope using a Belkin N wireless USB. The install on Jackalope was simple, a plug and play type situation, plugged it in and it worked. A few days ago though, i wiped the whole computer and installed Lynx. To my dismay, even though Lynx sees the wireless, sees the available signals, lets me input my password... it fails to connect. It just spins and spins and eventually asks for my password again...
I'm still pretty new to Ubuntu, and Linux in general. I updated, and pretty sure i retrieved 3rd party drivers for the video card properly (using a cable connection), but thats pretty close to where my "expertise" ends.
My ubuntu installation was running fine with the Belkin F7D1101 v1 after using this install method:[URL]..But, after allowing ubuntu to autoupdate many programs (don't remember which ones), the device stopped working. I checked all of the commands in the link above. They are all still functioning. dmesg throws no errors, but it terminates with
<code>ADDRCONF (NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready</code> Are there any network files which may have been overridden from autoupdate? iwconfig wlan0 shows "Access Point: Not-Associated" What output can I show you to help me find the problem?
I've got an old IBM Thinkpad T41 that I just play around with Ubuntu on. The internal Wireless card is broken, so I bought a Belkin F5D8013 PCMCIA Wireless N card a while ago. It worked fine with Ubuntu 8.04-9.10, but it will not work with 10.04. It sees the networks just fine and will let me type in the network password, but it will not connect. Everything else in my house connects without a hitch, so I know it is Ubuntu causing the problem.
I've been having one hell of a time getting my old computer back up and running for my son. A year ago I had this computer running with Ubuntu despite it's connection to our local wireless with a Belkin N1 F5D8001. Now I've got the newest version of Ubuntu installed on his computer and I'm trying to go through the same steps that I went through in the past. I've managed to get the NetMW14x.inf file downloaded and I've used the new GUI for windows drivers to install the .inf but it's showing no Hardware loaded.
Also, in the past, there was at least recognition of the existence of the card if I did an ifconfig, it was just a matter of assigning a driver to it, etc. Now, if I do an ifconfig, I get the ethernet (disconnected) and lo (loopback). So it's as if the card's dead, but it isn't because I just wiped XP off it this morning. What the heck is going on with this thing? I could swear I've done everything I've read and everything I recalled doing in the past to make this work, but I'm mostly hosed by the fact that it's as if the system doesn't give a crap that the card is inserted at all.
I've been trying to follow this tutorial: [url] to get my Belkin F5D8053 Wireless Adapter working. I get so far as using the "make" command, but then encounter an error. This is the full terminal results:
I've searched everything I can think of to find out if this or something similar has already been solved but I didn't find anything, that's not to say it hasn't already been done because I don't understand enough of what I'm using to search properly, if it has then I apologise.
The problem I have is connecting to the internet using Ubuntu 10.4 and my Belkin Wireless G Gaming Adapter, I'll try and give an overview of my setup. PC - BelkinWirelessAdapter - Router.
The PC is connected to Adapter via ethernet, I set up the Adapter through my web browser to connect to my router, it finds the router perfectly but no matter how I set up the IP settings etc... it won't come up saying it is connected to the internet, the connection to the adapter itself seems okay as long as I am only trying to get into the adapter itself which requires a particular IP address, this address can't be used to get online though, so when I change it to what works on every other system I've used nothing happends, nothing happens when I use DHCP either. I'm a complete Linux noob so please make any responses as simple as possible lol
I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an old machine to get a feel for it. No problems with the install, but I don't have a LAN connection lead spare so I'm trying to install my Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter (K75-F5D7050B which requires version 3 according to the Belkin site).
Unfortunately I can't find any Ubuntu software & driver versions on their site and I only have a windows installation disc.
am running Ubuntu 10.04 ... only because for some reason that is the only version that will load onto my IBM pentium 4 desktop! I installed ndisgtk, ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 by using the Synaptic Package Manager GUI. Using Windows Wireless Drivers GUI, I installed the driver rt 2870 off the Belkin CD that came with the product. Status is "Hardware present: Yes"
here is the status of my lsusb and iwconfig:
finn@finn-desktop:~$ lsusb Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:008c Microsoft Corp. Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 006: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components
It seems I have ndiswrapper working (I think!) ... but i still can't connect my wireless.
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 alongside Windows 7 and it is not picking up my Belkin N wireless adapter?? So I went to go and download the Windows Wireless Drivers (ndiswrapper) software so I can install my adapter and the download center just says "Not available in the current data" and wont let me download it? Also I tried to download my nVidia drivers from software center and it said the same thing?
Never before have I had a problem with Ubuntu until now So can anyone point me in any directions as to how to get these installed???
For two days I've tried to get my new Belkin 7050 wifi stick up and running. No matter what I did nothing changed, at all. After close to 8hrs of straight trouble shooting I have made zero progress. Zero.
If you have a bunch of free time and want a project then feel free to play with this device. However if you're short on time or have work to get done just take it back to the store and get a different device.
Here's the over view of my situation :
- Ubuntu 8.04 : Device is detected. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP. Router can see device. Router has no security / password enabled.After several hours of trouble shooting Ubuntu I booted into win2k (supported by device)
- Win2k : Device is detected, official software installed. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP.
It does the exact same thing in Win2k as it does in Ubuntu. - Ubuntu 9.10 : Did a fresh install if 9.10 just to trouble shoot this problem. Symptoms are exactly the same. DHCP doesn't get an ip. There are no errors in /var/log/messages
- Ubuntu 9.10 : Blacklisted the regular drivers and did the ndiswrapper method, smooth sailing. After all is said and done it does the exact same thing. DHCP doesn't get an ip.
In all the trouble shooting I did (iwconfig, ifconfig, etc) I never received any error messages telling me that something had went wrong (besides the part where dhcp didnt get an ip).
I have a newer Belkin N+ router that has a USB port for accessing an external hard drive.I can access the HD with no problem in Windows.I am new to Linux/Ubuntu and cant seem to connect to the HD. In "Network" I have a folder "Windows Share" and within that folder is where I see the HD "CBHD" (name of my drive). I cant click it because when I do, i get an error message along the lines of (cant remember exactly right now) "Failed to mound"I typically access the drive in Windows via : \192.168.2.1
I'm trying to get internet set up on my grandad's laptop (sony pcg-f590), which has a fairly old pcmcia belkin 54g wireless card. I've installed the relevant bcmwl5a.inf driver through ndiswrapper, and for a time wireless worked so I installed updates through update manager. however after restarting the network manager menu comes up with "wireless networks disconnected" and no list of networks (I know there are because my laptop works and his is sitting next to the router!). The light is on on the network card so I know the laptop is talking to it. Unplugging and replugging the card does nothing, and neither does restarting again.
I am using the Belkin wireless g usb adapter f5d7050 v1000 or at least that is what ubuntu says when I lsusb.
