Fellow Belkin F5D7050,
A know a post might get your hopes up for a solution . . . but I can not contribute that unfortunately. As I recall there has been another post about this Belkin Device and no one replied to it. Well, I have not yet begun to work with attempting to get Fedora Core 4.1 or 4.2 up and running on the internet. But I want to underscore the urgancy and need for members of this forum, as well as other for mus, to PLEASE take this issue on because there are at least two people in the same boat. PLEASE ADVISE. . . .
What Router do you use? I use a Belkin router that is currenty at 11b but I have purchsed a D-Link 54g model for an exceptionally good price--$48.00. That means I have a mixed network between Belkin, D-Link, and Apple products running fine. I am confident about the compatibility between Belkin devices and De-link components for the most part. I have to run a D-link Repeater or Signal Strength Booster to get broadband into my room. Also it is encouraging that either the 11b or 54g WIFI router is supposed to be fully Linux operationally as I understand it. So the key is setting up the access point, the Belkin F5D7050 USB Ethernet adapter/access point. These USB devices are the greatest for ease but not everyone supports them it sems. Often I have wondered if it were possible to hook up an Apple Airport PCI Card to at least a Linux based machine or at best for both Windows XP and variuous Linux distributions. My father has a Mini-Mac--I am very lose to purchasing one as I think they are one of the best PCs designed that is for its intented market. The Airport Card zooms in on the SSID "Winchester"--my network"--but as well as picks up my neighbors' WIFI Networks. This is no appartment building typically of "profession students like myself" either but exclusive homes from the 1980-90s that have large lots. The Apple Card in short is a pretty effective device. I just need to research it some more. Because it Apple, supposedly the "good guys," I am sure that it moe expensive than its equivalent is in Windows.
haveahve down reteach on google on the USB device. It seems that all versions except v.2000 can support Linux. But I have to say I got conflicting account of the deive. Equally it was reported to easily be setup (HA!)
So I very sorry that I haven't i given your a solution. Perhaps my response will put this measage back into the minds of other people so that both of us can get an answer.
Take care and tell my if your USB WIFI device is a V2000 sub "thumb" component? I do not know much about modems for DSLMs so I could be on the wrong track here. But I hate to see messages go unanswered even I cannot necessary solve them I can aid inn for matter,
