    Belkin 54g usb / Belkin routor trouble


    Ok, here is my specs for linux and the Belkin hardware I use

    belkin wireless g routor / 2.4ghz 802.11g / model- F5D7230-4 / VERSION 7001

    Adapator - Belkin usb network adaptor F5D7050

    Trying to config for internet through Kwifimanager or Klan. I have tried other wifi software but none seem to work

    OS is Slax or Freespire.

    Please help, maybe its a certain setting or config that I dont understand.

    Oh On Kwifimanager I can connect to my network but it only goes into ad-hoc mode. On windows xp it works good with internet. My network is open with no pass so it should connect and go to internet without any problems

    Freespire is a dead project. I wouldn't use it.

    Please post the output of
    Code:
    lsusb
    lsmod
    iwconfig

    To get the USB wireless adapter working (isn't that your goal?) we need the info from lsusb with it plugged in.

    Or are you having trouble configuring the network with your build in wireless card? It looks fine. You're using the broadcom wl module.

    The thing is ive got the dell 1525 slax wifi driver module, so it works and connects to my network. But the biggest problem is AD-HOC mode which i dont know how to change. Acces point unknown on the bottom, and ip address unavaible. The signal bar shows an x over it and when trying to use internet firfox it says server not found.

    You see I have two laptops, one being the dell 1525. And the other a dell lattitude cpx which is older so thats why it has freespire. and thats why i use the usb adaptor being that the lattitude dosent have built in wifi. But for now i want to get the dell inspiron 1525 working first.

    here is the info when the usb adaptor is plugged in on the 1525 I can get it to work on the other dell that i need it for but right now i just put it on this one

    Unfortunately, I'm not at all familiar with Slax or Freespire.

    For the mode, try as root
    Code:
    iwconfig eth2 mode managed
    Post the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep eth2
    dmesg | grep wl
    For the usb adapter, you need either the rt73usb driver (now obsolete) or the newer unified ralink drivers, rt2x00.

    With Freespire, though, I think your best bet would be ndiswrapper.

    I highly recommend installing a supported distro, though. There are many lightweight options out there. Take a look at Antix. It's Debian based, which means this is applicable: WiFi/rt73 - Debian Wiki

    Ok thanks, yea i use slax because my hdd went bad on the 1525 dell. And slax is the only distro i use that will save my files. so that each time i boot it up from usb it brings my stuff back.
    I'll look into those drivers though, it seems that AD-HOC mode is just pc to pc and i think it needs to be infustrated to access internet. But maybe im wrong.

    I know its kinda confusing since i have two laptops on talking about, and the lattitude is much older then the inspiron. when i use knetworkmanager on the lattitude with the usb adaptor it will try to connect. But fails after trying to config devices or get an ip address. seems like alot of people have those problems

    root@slax:~# iwconfig eth2 mode managed
    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device eth2 ; Invalid argument.
