    New to Linux, installed latest fedora having issues with Belkin wireless nic.


    Okay hopefully someone can point me in the right direction here. I have a very limited linux skill set so the more detail the better!!!

    I have a homebuilt machine that I have just installed the latest fedora core onto. I downloaded the DVD iso and installed it on a dedicated 250GB SATA drive. I went along with the default options during the install and with the exception of the wireless card everything seems to be working ok.

    The issue I am having is getting my Belkin wireless card to work. I have a Belkin F5D7000 installed on the system. I have read through numerous posts using ndiswrapper but I have yet to find any post detailed enough to explain to me what I need to do step by step or if I even need to use ndiswrapper.

    Can anyone help me out, I would be forever grateful.

    Thanks
    ~Shane

    Is that what is needed?

    I can understand the output of the 1st command, but what is the output of lspci -n showing?

    Thanks

    lscpi -n shows the numeric PCI ID. it's a number used to keep track of vendors who supply chipsets.
    in your case, you appear to have a MADWifi chipset.
    Give MADWifi a test and see if you can get it working.

    got madwifi installed but still not working

    so I was able to install a network card used a cross over cable to my laptop running windows to get a live internet connection and downloaded madwifi with the following command.

    yum install madwifi madwifi-kmdl-2.6.18-1.2868.fc6

    that went through downloaded evertything and installed it I am assuming. I did not receive any errors in this process. I still do not see a wireless card in the network hardware or devices. According to the madwifi help what I did should not have required anymore work on my part.

    Any ideas on how to get this to work?

    Thanks

    make sure the ath_pci module is loaded
    Code:
    lsmod | grep ath
    Should look similar to this
    ath_pci 69148 0
    ath_rate_sample 17544 1 ath_pci
    wlan 124700 4 wlan_wep,ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
    ath_hal 150480 3 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
    if thats good then have a look at
    Code:
    dmesg
    look for anything ath related.
    try this also
    Code:
    service network restart
    And post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig

    Let's just make it simple. Open up a terminal and type as root
    Code:
    modprobe ath_pci
    then post the output of typing
    Code:
    ifconfig
