    USB ON XANDROS


    I am having trouble with a usb device (Belkin ADSL Modem). I have tried using several different linux distros (Mandrake, RedHat, SuSe and currently XandrOS). It shows the device as Net Card under the hardware devices through the control centre but when setting up a network connection it only gives me the option of ethernet. Is there some way to use the modem through XandrOS. Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi MephistoHate,

    Rightly or wrongly so, I avoid using "USB" "Linux" and "Network" in the same paragraph.

    Seriously, I've always had trouble with USB network devices under Linux so I avoid them all together. If this is your unit, then it should work, although I wouldn't know how to advise you on getting it working. If this is your unit, Belkin clearly states it works under Linux, so I'd send their support an email asking for instructions.
