Driver installation for Belkin F5D6001 pci wlan card

I'm having trouble getting the driver installed for a Belkin F5D6001 v2 wlan card.

Here's my compile output that shows some warnings. I'm not sure what they mean or what I need to do being a newbie.

Thanks for any help!

linux:/usr/local/bin/adm8211 # make install
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.5-7.108-smp/build M=/usr/local/bin/adm8211 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.108-obj/i386/smp'
make -C ../../../linux-2.6.5-7.108 O=../linux-2.6.5-7.108-obj/i386/smp modules
Building modules, stage 2.

You should use a 2.6.7 kernel or newer to compile the driver properly, though I think 2.6.6 also works with a warning.

Angry Cannot access the Internet through Wireless (Mandrake 10)


I have set up my wireless card (Cisco 350) in Mandrake 10, but I am not able to connect to the internet. When I choose to create a ADSL connection, the only option it gives me is through modem (Rhine 10/100), so I am wondering I might have to configure the wireless card from scratch, Please, somebody give me a advice.
