USB wireless not seen by network manager -- belkin f6d4050 v2


Hello,

I am trying to get a USB Belkin Wireless adapter (belkin f6d4050 v2) to work on CentOS 6. I am unable to get network manager to see any wireless adapter – but it does appear through my messages log that the adapter is there. Below is the info I believe the be pertinent at this time. If you need more info please let me know and I will post.

Code:
/var/log/messages

Based on this and other info I found while searching I tried

I do not have experience with this adapter, but it seems you do not have the driver installed. You may look around for it, seems like a possible download site is

OK,
did a little more research.

http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.p...eless-adapter/

claims rt2800usb driver works with it, just you need the firmware file rt2870.bin placed in /lib/firmware/

It is packaged with ubuntu in case you cannot find it elsewhere.

Got it to work. Downloaded ndiswrapper from sourceforge and installed. Found my original CD for the card, in terminal went to the XP directory on the CD ran
Code:
ndiswrapper -i rt2870.inf
. Came up in network manager and was working. Too much stress for something so very simple :-). Thank you otoomet for your help, it didn't work for me but at least you offered assistance.
