    Martin: Post the output of lspci here. You'll need to find the chipset of the card, once you've done that you can search the ndiswrapper wiki for the .inf file to use.

    Hi Martin and Juan,

    Martin, I'm going to do a google search tonight to see if I can find the files required. I'll post my results (if I get any that is lol) on thsi thread.

    Juan, its not a card but rather a USB Wireless Adaptor. Here all the details off the Belkin website.

    Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter

    Part # F5D7050

    The link is on my first post btw.

    Martin go to this link:

    http://www.belkin.com/support/downlo...v2&lang=1&mode

    It has the drivers and a few *.inf and *.sys files. Open it with winzip and you can extract particular files individually. If anyone else wants to have a loot at them please feel free as both Martin and I would greatly appreciate it!!!!

    Hi Tim,

    Is this a new problem or did it happen when you loaded new drivers into ndiswrapper? Also those downloads only contain .exe files, no sign of usable .inf or .sys drivers so I'm still stuck on that one.

    If you use Winzip and open the exe file (weird I know) you will get a directory listing of the files. You can them extract the .inf and .sys drivers. I don't know if the files will work on Linux but its a start!

    Tim

    P.s. I'll get you a screenshot when I get home from work experience!

    Hi Tim,

    I located and extraced the correct files, they're RT2500~4.inf and RT2500.sys but when I try to run ndiswrapper I get one failure error after another. I have both SuSe 10 and Kanotix 2006 installed on my laptop and ndiswrapper comes pre-installed in Kanotix. In that distro I get a message stating the module is loaded but no device is detected, next message says that perhaps the driver files are not compatible.

    What this all says to me if that we could be looking at a wireless device that just does not run in Linux. Unfortunatley, I'm out of ideas but if anyone has any sugggestions, fell free to offer!

    For the record, here's the link to the instructions I've been using;

    Hi Martin,

    The company that I'm on work experience have laods of spare monitors so I'm going to try and see if I can "borrow" one and get Linux working on my PC. It does seem odd. I wonder if anyone else has managed to actually get this wireless adaptor to actually work?!
