The Solution This information has been pulled from several different sources. Their router did work with Linux, the reason I quit using it was that it was incompatible with my VoIP device. I tried lots of stuff, so I could have easily missed something. I don’t believe bcmn43xx64 is the correct driver. I would also check Network Connections to check that it’s showing up there too, in case it’s only recognised as a usb device. I might look at ndiswrapper like I think they used at http: Then please post the output, Lets see if Linux can detect it, If it can it will work, We may not be able to help you to get it going but I am sure a Linux forum can.

Belkin Wirless adapter, and MInt? Using the site is easy and fun.

Getting the Belkin N DB to work on Ubuntu – Brian Zier

Some people probably wouldn’t care, and for the most part I’m one of those people; however, I don’t like the idea of myself or someone else stepping or tripping on the cable or having the cable get caught and ripped out of my computer or the router.

I have heard that Linux and wireless networking is always a challenge, but have never dealt with it until now. Now you can install the downloaded drivers with ndiswrapper change directory to the extracted driver folder: Some companies may say this as a blanket statement to cover their back.


While the excerpt above has gotten me past the issues with ndiswrapper itself, I haven’t yet been able to complete the whole guide as to get the N working properly with my own WiFi, which I suspect may be due to my router’s configuration. Am glad that after a year, you’ve found a resolution that works, for now anyway.

Last edited by keratos; at Hey guys, first post after my intro This is what worked for me with that setup. If you choose to use the drivers included on the CD, be sure to use the XP drivers.

Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies. Hopefully we’ll hear back on the commands used to make the adapter work, not all of that output on the linked page, rather the exact commands used probably just a few at the most.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. I had forgotten that the Belkin adapter that I have did not work, during previous trials of the OS.

Linux – Hardware This forum is for Hardware issues. Yet I’m glad you hung in there, I’d had tossed the card if not under warranty or exchange period. If all goes well, the wireless adapter should now bekkin enabled.


Any tips on troubleshooting? As well as checking if it shows up as a usb device as Nick recommended, I would also check Network Connections to check that it’s showing up there too, in case it’s only recognised as a usb device.

I went to this site http: Ubuntu Forums Code of Conduct. I have just uploaded it to my dropbox account. I couldn’t remember how to get the inf file in the correct folder. You should now be able to click on the Network Manager Applet and select your wireless network.

I don’t know C programming, so couldn’t debug the errors, nor could find any references or patches to correct the errors. I don’t believe bcmn43xx64 is the correct driver.
