belkin wireless g pcimia card : slackware 10.1


ok my friend gave me his OLD notebook, dell latitude xpi cd . Must have been real fancy having a cd drive? haha. I was at walmart today buying some floppies to make some linux boot disks to setup slackware 10.1 on and I bought a belkin wireless g card for it to replace the old 33.6 modem. Well it took a while but, slack is on it and now I want to setup this card.

I have read alot of post but, maybe the answers are to advanced for me. I tryed some command to see the card , I think lprs but the command didn't work or wasn't there it said. I have also read the slackbook on this and it didn't seem to help. Can anyone give me some steps to follow on what to do? I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!

Well, could you please tell us exactly what card you are using? That way we can see exactly how compatible the card is in general. Also, please post the output of "lspci" when the card is plugged in...

Ok, I found the following in LQ's HCL.
Quote:
Instructions for Slackware:

Works absolutely fine with ndiswrapper (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net) if you follow the directions step by step. Problems have been reported with the Belkin driver and ndiswrapper, so I used the A-link card's driver instead.


Later, I found and grabbed the fantastic new rt2400/rt2500 driver for Linux (http://rt2400.sourceforge.net), and it seems to work as well. I haven't tested its connectivity with access points or other cards in ad hoc mode.


Note that the two LEDs on the card don't light right away, even if the card has been modprobed successfully and standing by. They should light, however, once you're connected to something.
Try that, and see if it works...HIH!
