I recently installed the latest and greatest Lubuntu 64 bit, because I like lxde and I am planning a system migration. (I am really starting to not like windows 7.) I have some linux experience. I wouldn't say I am awesome at it, but I am comfortable trying anything.
Example: I have used CENTOS 5.6 to make a linux machine server as a glorified router, with asterisks, SIP, SSH server, x windows, GNome, VNC, and a user authentication system. and get this I walked somebody through setting this up over the phone. I reopened the root account (I honestly got tired of typing sudo every other command is the only reason why I opened it.) I plan on closing it after we are done.
lsusb lists the wireless adaptor
Wireless Card Link
I have the driver CD. I installed ndiswrapper.I copied the files from my driver cd to my <home> Directory. Then installed the Windows XP version of the drivers using ndiswrapper -l <driver>. I then made ndiswrapper force the driver to the vendor ID of the wireless card. Using ndiswrapper -a <vendor ID> <Driver>(I did this last night and the vendor ID escapes me. I am at work now.)I finally ran depmod -a and modprobe ndiswrapperI goto the windows wireless driver application, and it shows the driver as loaded and the hardware as found.
However, it still does not list a wireless device in the network manager to where I can connect to my wireless. iwconfig does not show any wireless LAN, but it is still listed in lsusb. Also, the light that shows activity on the wireless device does not light up or blink at all. I have about 6 usb ports on my desktop and have tried everyone. The wireless card also works in Windows 7 64-bit On a strange side note. I do have internet access through LAN, (My laptop is atm a glorified wireless card .)
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 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 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:
ndiswrapper says the driver and hardware are present but iwconfig and ifconfig don't say anything.The wireless adapter works fine in windows 2000 and windows xp with the same driver.The green LED on the wireless adapter never flashes like it is supposed to.
i have ubuntu 10.04 i believe and i cant connect to the intenret i guess its not detecting my wireless adapter. i cant try ethernet cord which prolly would work because i cant move pc to another room....is there any fix for this? i googled linux drivers but i cant find any...i do have the cd that came with the adapter.
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 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 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???
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:

It seems I have ndiswrapper working (I think!) ... but i still can't connect my wireless.
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.
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.

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 have a Centos 5.6 Linux Server configured as Router with NAT for my LAN. There are currently 2 NIC's on my server. One is connected to WAN , a PPOE connection (eth0) and eth1 is connected to a switch which supports my LAN. I have enabled NAT and configured iptables on my server and I am able to access internet from LAN and everything is working fine.I have a Belkin F5D8233-4v3 Wireless router and I need to configure wireless on my network so that I can access internet from my Laptop. The issue is that I have only 2 NIC's on my server, one Gigabit NIC integrated with my motherboard and another NIC which I am currently using for WAN access and LAN. I need to setup the Belkin as an wireless Access Point.
Can I connect my Belkin to my switch and set it up as a Wireless Access Point?? I have read about setup using 3 Nic's.Any ideas on how to configure my Belkin as Wireless Access Point with my existing setup? Is Belkin F5D8233-4v3 supported on Linux.
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
The wireless usb adapter connects to my network, and the router is running on mixed mode, except that I cannot seem to get wireless 'n' connection speeds. Both are capable of wireless n. I check the connection info and it is always 54 Mbps. I have set the router wireless on N-only and I lose my connection.Is the standard driver for this usb adapter in Ubuntu 10.4 unable to utilize 'n' speeds?
I am trying to set up a wireless LAN using a Zdyas zd1211 USB adapter. I downloaded the .tar file, uncompressed it, then used make and make install. I then loaded the driver using modprobe -v zd1211. I have some questions:
A) After I performed all this, when I ran the Network Configuration Window, I can't find the Zdyas zd1211 driver in the list of supported wireless cards. Is there a configuration file I should edit to add this driver to system-config-network?
B) To which files should I add the modprobe, ifconfig and iwconfig commands or values so that the driver is automatically loaded and configured whenever I reboot the computer?
C) I am using FC8. What package supports the wpa supplicant?
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
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.
