Belkin F5D7010 and Fedora 10
I have been trying to get this card working with my laptop and Fedora 10 for about three days now, I think it's time to ask a professional at a forum, no? :P
I tried ndiswrapper, but 'make' and 'make install' always comes up with an error (after I had to go and install it first).
My lspci, lsmod, and dmesg are attached.

Hello,and welcome to Linux Forums!
There are no professionals here, just people who have figured out how to correct their mistakes.
Thank you for the detailed info. For future reference, you can copy and post the text files directly into the post. You just surround them with quote and /quote or code and /code tags.
Surround them like this:[code]This is the code[/code]

If there is no wireless listed in the "Network" setup GUI, then you don't have the correct driver. You will need to try a different or newer version. Here is some info on the driver.
Main Page - Realtek Linux wireless driver
EDIT: I just notice that there were two parts to your dmesg file. The second part has the wireless listed, and it seems to be trying to connect to something.

Thank you so much for your time!
I guess this NetworkManager thing is exactly like the Network Connections dialog in Windows, who would have known? :P
Anyway, yes, that worked like a charm! I was literally looking for my old Windows disk when I got your reply. I guess I can use Linux after all.
I still have tons to learn, though...
Thanks, once again.
