Install BELKIN Wireless G USB Network Adapter on my system?
I installed Xandros Home Edition Version 4
on my computer with Windows XP pro.
My system is Dell Dimension 2350 with a WD 250GB drive.
Trying to install my BELKIN Wireless G USB Network Adapter.
The Model number is BELKIN F5D7050.
The USB Network Adapter looks like a USB Jump drive.
BELKIN is not giving a chipsets.
Where do I get the software to install my Wireless device?
How do I install this software?
Is there a simple way to install software for my Wireless device?
I tried the BELKIN installation CD.
The BELKIN installation CD works for Windows XP pro.
Do I need to buy another Wireless G USB Network Adapter
that works with Xandros Home Edition Version 4?
This usb wireless network adapter does not work I have one
Sorry to say this adapter won't work and I know of no USB wireless adapters that do but you can double check this by going to Xandros website and look in support then look in Xandros Pro 4 compatible hardware list. Then look under wireless network cards, you will see a list in alphabetical order but no listings for USB wireless network hardware just PCI cards. Please be advised that Belkin has no support drivers available for linux of any kind. This has been a long time shortcoming regarding hardware driver support and 3rd party software support for any distro or version of linux. This makes it double hard if you have a motherboard like an Asus M2N32 with 2 PCI express graphic cards installed as it leaves you with only 1 accessible PCI slot. I had to hard link via a cable to the Belkin Wireless rounter because I wanted the pci slot for my Auzentech PCI sound card. The only other way to install a PCI wireless network card would be to take out the 2nd graphics card to get access to the other PCI slot as there is no room to install one, miserable but that's all I can tell you.
