    Unable to get wifi working


    hello i was trying out archbang live distro and could not get it to recognise my wi-fi. I right clicked to edit connections and entered the ssid, bssid and mac and added the wpa2 personal password but all i get is no connection found firmware missing. It sounds to me like i need drivers for my dongle which is a belkin F5D7050 Wireless G. Any suggestions, as if it does need drivers how do i get and install them without a connection? Here's hoping someone has a solution for me thank you in advance..

    Do you not have anyway of getting a wired connection?

    If you can find the driver on a computer with internet access, you should be able to put it on a CD or Flash drive and install it.
