Do you means this thing: http://www.homehub.bt.com/ ?
How do you connect your pc with it? Do you plug in an ethernet cable? Do you connect it via USB? Do you use wireless network to connect to it?

OK, as root, run this command:
Code:
ifconfig -a
does it show anything else than the information for the "lo" interface?

OK, the problem you're having is your wireless network card isn't detected. Probably because the drivers aren't installed.
Maybe the drivers are available, maybe they're not.

can you post the output from "lsusb -v"? Run the command as root.

thanks, next time put \[code\] and [/code] around the text. (without backslashes)

Appearantly Belkin uses this device name for more than one chipset. Can you find the name of the driver in Windows?

they use that name for different usb adapters, you have to find out which one in windows devide manager (a button somewhere in a window that has to do with hardware settings in the windows config panel, sorry I cannot be more specific, I'm almost exclusively linux user) or by looking on the cd that came in the box.

Maybe you will find some more info on this website: http://opensource.bureau-cornavin.com/belkin/index.html

If you cannot find the driver name in windows maybe there's some more info if you run dmesg, unplug the adapter, plug it back in, run dmesg again, and post the lines that were added back here.

that wasn't the result I'd hoped for.
However, I googled a bit for debian rt73 and it seems you are lucky.
The following steps should get you wireless adapter working (I assume you are running debian 5.0 "lenny", if not, things are much more complicated):
- create a directory somewhere that you can access from windows and debian.
- download the packages from http://packages.debian.org/lenny/firmware-ralink and http://packages.debian.org/lenny/wireless-tools and put them both in the diretory you just created.
- reboot to debian and open a terminal as root
- use cd to go to the directory where you downloaded the packages
- install them with (as root):
Code:
dpkg -i <put the name of the package here>
- say a prayer to the god of your choice
- reboot
