Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Wireless USB Adapter: Belkin FD4050?
Apr 11, 2010
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:
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 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 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 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???
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 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 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:

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.

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'm trying to use a D-Link DWA-130 wireless adapter with my desktop running Ubuntu 10.10. I've been scouring the forums (and google of course) and really can't understand why it's not working.The output from "iwconfig wlan0 is:Code:wlan0 no such deviceSo here is where I ask the stupid question: must you have a wireless card in the computer to use a wireless usb adapter? I built the computer myself you see and was looking to save some money.
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 Ubuntu 9.10, which I just now installed on my Dell Dimension 3000. The computer has all of its USB ports working perfectly; tested in Windows. I plugged in my SMC USB Ez Connect g wireless adapter, and it isn't even recognized by the system. I used lsusb, and nothing except the USB keyboard and mouse shows up. Every time I boot or shut down, I get tons of errors saying that it's "unable to enumerate USB device on Port...," then the port number of whichever port I plug the wireless adapter into. I've tried using ndiswrapper, and have completely installed the Windows drivers using that (which were the same ones that worked perfectly in Windows XP Pro). I've tried looking into compat-wireless and Linux Wireless, and have successfully installed the zd1211rw drivers and everything. The drivers install completely and work, there is just no hardware present, or so it says. This is what the terminal says when I type dmesg, and also part of what shows up on booting and shutdown:
I hope I've given enough information. Oh, and I downloaded Ubuntu a few days ago from their website, burned to a CD-R, installed, and downloaded all updates that it asked me to. Other than that and the ndiswrapper and driver installation, I've done nothing on the system.
recently I bought a an Asus n13 usb wireless adaptor. It came with the linux drivers installed and some brief instructions, but make failed and I don't know why. I am running ubuntu 10.10 (64bit) and gcc version 4.4.5.The error messages from make

I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.
I am using the Belkin wireless g usb adapter f5d7050 v1000 or at least that is what ubuntu says when I lsusb.

I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
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.
