Belkin 802.11b USB WLAN w/ Mandrake 9.1
I have had Mandrake 9.1 installed (dual, with Win XP) on a box for a while now, not really doing anything with it other than fooling with commands and such, but i finally decided to hook it up to my pre-existing Wireless LAN.
I use, as you can see in the Subject, a Blekin 802.11b USB setup. As far as my research has gone, and as helpful as Belkin Tech Support haven't been, i can only connect to the internet services and home network if i use a cable straight to the Hub. Mandrake 9.1 itself works fine that way...however, it does not recognise the USB Wireless reciever once i take it upstairs and no longer use a direct connection with the Hub.
I was wondering if anyone could give any suggestions as what to do to rectify this, as i would like to finally get online with Linux and see how far it really goes. If you need any more information, i will post it as soon as possible; any comments or suggestions are wanted.
