    Smile [SOLVED] Installing Belkin F6D4050ea


    Hello

    My computer is an AMD 64 athlon, 1GB RAM & using Ubuntu 9.04.

    I am currently using an ethernet card and have just bought a Belkin F6D4050ea wireless card and don't know how to properly install it on Ubuntu.
    I have already installed the ndiswrapper and installed the windows drivers that came on the CD.

    When I go into Wireless network drivers it lists the rt2870 and says Hardware present: Yes, but when I click Configure network it says could not find a network configuration tool.

    The forum guide told me to do some terminal checks and here are the outputs to them. Hope someone can help a novice with this.

    When I type dmesg I find 'couldn't prepare and couldn't load driver'. I have copied part of the output and pasted it below at 3.

    1.
    Code:
    a a-desktop:~$ lsusb

    Hello and Welcome. Is this a USB device or PCI? I don't see it listed in your post above. I think you should remove ndiswrapper and only use that as a last resort....that is what it's intended for.
    Post the output of these commands please.
    Code:
    lspci |grep -i net
    Code:
    ifconfig
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    The belkin wireless card is USB. Currently I have the cable connection in use.
    I will uninstall the ndiswrapper and drivers after I send this email.
    Here is the output to your commands.

    Should be
    lspci |grep -i net
    not a 1, it's a lowercase I.

    You said it's a USB device right? Did you plug it in, when you issued the lsusb command?
    Make sure it's plugged in and try the lsusb command again..I don't see anything resembling a Wireless card.

    It was plugged in. Here is the output with and without the wireless USB card connected. The first one has the card connected shown as item 04

    It worked!

    Hey

    I followed the instructions and have got the wireless usb card to work. I am now on wireless!

    As I am a novice do you recommend any guides to the basic use of linux/ubuntu, for example what to type in and how to use the terminal?

    Cheers
