Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin N150 Won't Work / What To Fix This?

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).

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin N150 Wireless USB Adapter Rt2870 Not Working?
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.

Ubuntu :: Crappy Belkin N150 Router?
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 ) 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?

Ubuntu Networking :: 'Belkin N Wireless USB Adapter' Worked And Stopped To Work
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Intermittent Connection With RTL8192E In Samsung N150?
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.

$ lspci -nn
05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8192E Wireless LAN Controller [10ec:8192] (rev 01)[code]....

Attached is a file with some snippets from dmesg around the time of the wireless failure, and the log of what it does after a remove and re-add for comparison of the "correct" messages.

Ubuntu Networking :: D-Link N150 Dwa525 Only Half Working On 10.10
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.

Details of my system:

Ubuntu 10.10
2.6.35-22-generic x86_64
Desktop PC:
Intel Core i5 750

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - Samsung N150 - Atheros AR9285 - Wireless Detected But Cannot Connect
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

Hardware :: D-Link DWA-643 And Belkin F5D8071 (Belkin N1) Master Mode?
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?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Belkin F6D4050 V2 Does Not Work In 11.3?
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin F7d1101 Will Not Connect?
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Belkin N1 Router
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 (this is correct for that router, it is not 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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin Surf & Share On 10.10?
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 Belkin F7D1101 Can't Connect To Network?
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Trying To Get Belkin Wireless Card Working With 10.04
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin Wireless N USB Found But Won't Connect
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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin Basic Wireless USB Adapter?
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?
