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 love ubuntu, but I don't know how to use a command line to save my life. I'd just as soon never use a terminal ever. My big issue is I cannot get my wireless adapter to work. It is a keebox w150nu, which is based off the Ralink RT3070 chip. I am willing to use command line to get this thing to work because I love ubuntu to death, but everything I have tried has failed. I have gone to the Ralink website and downloaded the Tar.bz file from there. t
The file I grabbed is the third one down from the top: [URL].
I have absolutely no idea what to do from there with the file however. Please understand that I have zero idea how to use command line in a terminal. What I have to do to make this work? Is there a usb wireless N adapter that works straight away with ubuntu 10.10, as in I plug it in before the install, and it is immediately recognized and works immediately?
I've been trying to get a Zoom wireless-n usb adapter to work. It works under Windows once I enable file & printer sharing.I tried to connect directly to the D-Link router using its IP4 address. I received the message the site could not be found. I used network manager (I think. I'm new to wireless ubuntu networking) and manually set the computer's IP4, Gateway, and netmask addresses. Nothing. I connect the ethernet patch cable and I'm in. Network Manager show the wireless network, set as automatic log in, as never used even tho I've connected to it manually several times. The router is in multi-mode - b, g, & n.
I'd show the output from sudo ifconfig -a, and sudo lsmod | grep rt but I keep getting this error message: " 1. You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 15 posts or more."Windows shows the adapter as rt2780 but here you can see it's claiming rt3070. The wireless icon shows it's getting a signal and I can connect to the local network, or so it seems. I'm running it thru a D-Link DIR-628 router. Is there something else I'm missing?
So I recently installed Slackware 13.1 and now want to get my D-Link DWA-140 to work with it. However I'm quite an amateur at Linux and can't seem to figure out how to. After following many different how-tos and tutorials this is where I am: I got 2010_0709_RT2870_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11 (supposedly USB driver)package and rt2870.bin (supposedly firmware) in my root catalog. What I have already done with them:
make & make install in 2010_0709~ blacklisting modules 2x00usb, 2x00lib, 2800usb modprobe rt2870sta copying rt2870.bin to /lib/firmware
Regardless of everything, my adapter still is not active.. and how can I make the OS load the module at startup?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 (and eventually upgraded to 10.10) on a 6+ year old Gateway Laptop. When I booted Ubuntu up after installing it, I was rather surprised to discover that the wireless card didn't work. I am almost certain that the wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4306, but I am unable to determine what revision it is, if at all. When I look at the network connections widget, it says that the wireless card is not ready, and iwconfig (I think) says that it's disabled.
It's not a problem with the laptop itself, because I was able to get a Linksys usb wireless adapter to work just fine on it, although it was SLOW (about 90 kbs). I am trying to fix this on a FRESH installation of Xubuntu 10.04 with the default packages on it, nothing more. Now, I was able to get the wireless working ONCE on ubuntu, using fwcutter I think, but it went away upon reboot. One last thing, I am running the 32 bit Xubuntu 10.04 on what I think is a 64 bit machine (I think it ran x64 Ubuntu 10.04 before I ditched it), so how to figure out if it is 64 bit.
i can't get my wg111t netgear wireless adapter to work. I followed the help thing by installing ndisgtk, which installed successfully. I was able to load up the file on the cd that also the help page said. The problem is that the computer won't load up the adapter as it would load up my cd's and flash drive. Here's how i installed ndisgtk. I installed the files ndiswrapper_common, ndiswrapper_1.9, and then the ndisgtk_0.8.5.All of these were for i386.
Have tried methods from every thread I could find for past 10 hrs. Have tried installing rt3070sta etc.Monitored message log; appears that the driver isn't recognized, though the USB port sees that something is plugged in (when I plug in the adapter, and unplug it).All of the threads miss something; I can't get a wireless port listed under ifconfig no matter what I try. Seems that every method leaves out something (I guess because everyone's box is different in some way). Network manager doesn't help much. Downloaded Wicd, which does even less.I guess I could try ndiswrapper, but I'm scared away by the hundreds of pages I see on going that route; I'm almost certain it wouldn't work (1000 possible points of failure).Does anyone have a strategy to recommend?AM64 box, newly installed Edubuntu 10.04, ran update manager.
Basically I am looking to short-cut the whole learning curve thing and just buy the adapter that I need! What I need is for someone / what usb wireless-n adapter that DOES work with very little effort on my part!
My wireless adapter connects to my WPA2 network perfectly, but when I run firefox it says it can't load the webpage, no matter what page I go to. Also, downloading new software doesn't work either. Any ideas please?
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 Ubuntu 10.10 onto my Acer Aspire D260 netbook.I find it much easier to use than Windows 7.Everything has been working fine until I recently tried going on the internet via battery power instead of my A/C charger. My update manager is showing that I am up to date and Additional Drivers is showing that the Broadcom STA wireless driver is installed and in use.
I can only connect via wire beacuse ubuntu doesn't appear to have drivers for my adapter (the 150n) which uses the RaLink RT2870 (or 3070 this part I'm not totally clear on). Thats all fine and dandy, Intellinet supply the driver, but heres the clincher, I downloaded the driver, and realised with a grand "ahhh crap", I really had no idea where to go from there (if you find yourself needing to back away from this thread now, i understand)
oh and if you're wondering why i got ubuntu without knowing how to do something as simple (I'm sure this is all very basic stuff) as this, its because everything elsse (EVERYTHING) is working perfectly, including my dvd drive which claimed (under windows rule) that it was broken, its just the damn internet, and im getting a wee bit tired of hunching over a computer arranged on the floor, inconveniently placed so i can use the wire-
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 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 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'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:
