Belkin 802.11g wireless usb network adaptor ver. 5000

I just bought a new Belkin USB network adaptor that is ver 5000 of F5D7050. lsusb only shows that it is a Belkin Component but nothing else. The win drivers are:

blkwgu.sys .inf and .cat

I am running FC9 for x86_64 for kernel 2.6.25.11-97

It doesn't appear in any networking tools and I had yum install wireless*

Any ideas of how to get this working? Do I need ndiswrapper?

ok, I ran yumex and just did this:

Removed:

kernel-2.6.25.10-86.fc9.x86_64

Installed:

kmod_ndiswrapper-2.6.25.11-97.fc9.x86_64-1.53-2.lvn9.x86_64
ndiswrapper-1.53-1.lvn9.x86_64

Dependency Installed:

kernel-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64
kmod-ndiswrapper-1.53-3.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-ndiswrapper-2.6.25.14-108.fc9.x86_64-1.53-3.lvn9.x86_64

I'll reboot and set up ndiswrapper and see if it works!

ok, I copied all of the WinXP drivers on the cd to a directory and then did this:

/usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -i BLKWGU.inf

all went well and I followed up with this:

/usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -l


It gave a good output:

blkwgu : driver installed
device (050D:705E) present


So then the INSTALL file says to do this:

/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper

I again got no errors but was my wireless device did not come to life. iwconfig gave this:


lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

pan0 no wireless extensions.

How do I get online now??

Hello LinuxHippy

I've not tried the modprobe command by specifying the path to it.

If you are doing that as an ordinary user, you may jsut not have the correct authority to do that.

Usual practice would be to run:

Code:
su -
to obtain full root contrlo over your computer. The space and minus sign are very important. Then run:

Code:
modprobe ndiswrapper
However, that will only load the ndiswrapper module until you restart the machine, and you may need to do that to get the wireless recognised.

Usual instructions for Fedora suggest that after the 'modprobe ndiswrapper' command you use:

Code:
ndiswrapper -ma
and then reboot.

Hope that helps.
