OpenSUSE Wireless :: Belkin USB Wireless Not Showing In YAST
Jun 16, 2010
I have a Belkin F5D8055au USB wireless adapter which I can't configure in YAST. I have downloaded the RT2870sta driver from RALink and compiled it - seemed to be ok. Modprobe loads it ok. Some info:
When I open network settings in YAST my wired (ethernet) card shows up but not the USB. If I manually add a wireless card, I can't select the kernel module from the drop down list - there is nothing in it. At that point I abort YAST. So, how do I convince YAST that there really is a USB wireless adapter connected?
I use openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4 and I have a Belkin Share Wireless USB Adapter (F7D2101 v1) , I attached the adapter and rebooted the system, it does not work. Can someone help me configure?
I attached the adapter and the system says:
dmesg | tail [ 1184.799076] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 2 [ 2003.060031] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 [ 2003.194525] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=050d, idProduct=845a [ 2003.194531] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 2003.194535] usb 1-1: Product: Connect Wireless USB Adapter

I am trying to configure a wireless connection from YAST under the Network Settings tool.It doesn't seem to do anything. My USB wifi device is detected in YAST > Hardware and I am using the module it says Hardware is using. It doesn't seem to save the module under YAST> Network Settings> Network Card Setup. Is this tool broken or useless? It seems setting up WiFi should be easier than this. YAST should work shouldn't it?
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 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.
Cannot Connect to a wireless network using a USB Belkin 802.11g Model F5D7050: Setting up a new pc is running opensuse 11.2 (i586) KDE 4.3.1
Question1) The HCL shows a version, how do I find what version i have? Question2) Why is rt73.bin not being loaded? I ask this because the file is located in Root/lib/firmware Question3) Why is Configure Desktop > Network Manager > Wifi is blanked out as if doesnt exist?
Question 4) when using YAST > Network Settings > Initially under wireless network card configuration I can scan the area and find networks successfully (I got 2, one as a wifii hotspot from my pda cell phone, the other is the standard wireless network for laptops and such).... but if i use kinternet >wlan0 > wireless connection, nothing will be found! I did a search on the /var/bootlog msg for "switch" and "radio", for radio I found the following:

I have a Belkin F5D6050 adapter, which (despite being only 11b) was working better than my 11n adapter on 11.1 [The 11n stopped working today after I ran an upgrade; I have got it working - in a fashion under 11.3 - see RTL819SU not working with ifup (needs ifup-dhcp first)] I can't connect to my AP. The significant output from dmesg appears to be:

I have recently installed openSUSE 11.3 I have a Belkin G Wireless Network Adaptor
Model: F5D7050 FCC ID: K7SF5D7050E
Linux doesn't seem to recognise this device at all. I had a look online from another PC for drivers. and they are provided by Belkin themselfs but only for Windows XP/Vista.Is it possible to get this working on openSUSE. I previously used this very same adaptor on an Unbuntu 10.2 PC and it worked with no problems at all.
I'm having a wireless issue (go figure) where I can't get to the internet, can get to my LAN just fine, but trying to ping anywhere on the net just gives me "network unavailable" message.One thing I've seen noted here time and again is people saying "Use Yast vs Network manager" when I go through the Yast Network Devices GUI it tells me it's using network manager, and I need to use ifup (if I want to use Yast), however I have no clue how to go about changing it from one to the other?
Currently I'm using hard-link to get all the updates and see if that will resolve my problems, but figured I'd learn how I'm supposed to switch it for the future.
This is a mutation of; Help, my wireless .... I read the stickies and hope to provide enough info. Because we had problems getting a Linksys device working (it worked, but after that it failed) on openSUSE 11.3, my friend (the system owner) bought a Eminent EM4554 Wifi 150N forgetting to ask me to look in the HCL. On looking through the Eminent web-site I discovered they have a Linux tarball for it, but I prefer to look for an openSUSE ready solution first. The tarball showed that it is about a Ralink RT2870 chipset.
lsusb: Code: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. I added the download.opensuse.org/repositories/driver:/wireless/openSUSE_11.3/ and the update of that repos. On starting YaST > Software > Software Management it offered several packages for installation that all seemed related to this subject and came from those repos, so I installed them. I did not install the ralink-firmware package because that warned that it would remove the kernel-firmware package.
I have WiFi printer, HP DeskJet F4500. If suse firewall is on, yast doesn't see that printer. If I turn firewall off, Yast sees printer and install it just fine. Problem is, that when i start firawall again, yast denies whole printer and turn it off mode in Yast. What firewall rule i have to make to get this work?
I've installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and I'm pretty happy with over all system, the only issue that I had is with Yast, so far. It gives me alert for security patches but no alert for Software update. When I did "zypper up" as superuser I saw that there are updates available for more that 14 applications but yast didn't show me.
if there is any setting for it or should I file it as a bug.
I have a Belkin G Wireless USB Network Adapter that I cannot get working for the life of me...USB adapter hardware: F5D7050 Ver. 3136 (v3000) Below are ouputs after a fresh install... Then I tried to install the newest drivers from ralink [URL] I blacklisted the current drivers and installed these and everything looked the same as before. Even if i blacklist the 3 drivers
rt2500usb rt2x00lib rt2x00usb
They are still loading at boot. Is there any way to make this work. I would try ndiswrapper but even when blacklisting those above, they are still loading.

I cannot click on either of these. So I check dmesg...

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 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 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.
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'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
