    F5d7050


    I'm trying to install a Belkin Wireless USB adapter F5D7050 on Damn Small Linux. I've used ndiswrapper to install the windows driver, and it says that the driver and hardware has been recognised. I'm a bit stuck on what I do next though. I'd be much obliged if someone could enlighten me.

    If DSL comes with iwconfig (most distros do) then try running the command "sudo iwconfig ndiswrapper essid <essidname> mode Managed" or if you use encryption then "iwconfig --help" will tell you what other options you need to include in the command.

    Cheers
