I'm new to Ubuntu, and I'm trying to get my Belkin USB adapter to work. There are plenty of discussions out there already about this, but none really helped me out.

Here's what I've done -

  • Installed ndiswrapper Installed
  • ndisgtk Installed the driver
  • (rt2870.inf) via ndisgtk

ndisgtk reported that the driver was installed and the hardware was present.

The green light on the adapter is solid green, which I assume means that Ubuntu is aware of it's presence. However, when I click the little wireless symbol at the navigation bar, there's no option to choose my adapter (assuming that it's supposed to show up there...)

My adapter version is F6D4050 -

Where do I go from here? I'm a Ubuntu newb, so speak slowly. :P
