    Identifying a windows driver to use with ndiswrapper


    I have a Belkin "Wireless USB G Netwrok Adapter" (F5D7050). The info page from Belkin might also be helpful.

    I want to use ndiswrapper to get on the network from my Mandriva boot, but to use ndiswrapper I need to, err, identify which file is the driver
    The list of files on the Belkin CD is as follows:

    autorun.inf

    folder: files
    > flashmain.swf
    > icon.ico
    > start.exe
    > subfolder: Manual
    > > ar500enu.exe
    > > manual.pdf
    > subfolder: Support
    > > belkin.txt
    > > install.txt
    > > manual.txt
    > > uninstall.txt

    folder: installer
    > data1.cab
    > data1.hdr
    > data2.cab
    > ikernal.ex_
    > layout.bin
    > Setup.exe
    > Setup.ini
    > Setup.inx
    > setup.iss

    Kinda embarrassing to have to ask this question, but I just cant work it out.

    Thanks for looking at this

    well currently none of them are the inf files. What you should do is launch windows, and extract the ar500enu.exe file, that may spit out some inf files. If it doesn't, try some of the other executable files.

    Also, see this post, follow the link for ndiswrapper and see what drivers people used to get that card working.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks AlexK, problem solved (I think)

    I say "I think" because as soon as I'd successfully installed the driver & configured the network I broke X ... Fortunately, it seems to be the same that problem that I've had before, so when I've got some sleep it should be a fairly easy fix.

    Thanks again
