Question Belkin Wireless Card Problems


I am unable to do anything with my Belkin wireless card in Ubuntu, right now, I'm typing to you via it with Windows.

First off, here's the closest I could find to that via lspci.

Code:
01:06.0 Ethernet controller: Belkin Unknown device 700f (rev 20)
        Subsystem: Belkin Unknown device 700f
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 11
        I/O ports at c800 [size=256]
        Memory at ed003000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
Now, when I try installing the driver as mentioned here, via ndiswrapper, I end up with this.

Code:
installing bcmwl5a ...
couldn't open /sda2/Ubuntu/bcmwl5a.inf: No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper-1.9 line 174.

Make sure the path to the file is correct.

It is, I triple checked.

Could it be that sda2 is read-only?

After moving it to my home folder, I got it to install. After doing a force hardware to driver, I still have no wireless network connection in network manager.

Your lspci reply shows a Belkin "ethernet" controller. I'm pretty sure that a wifi should be listed as "network" controller. Try either
Code:
lspci -v
or
Code:
lshw
and see if "network" hardware shows up. Depending on the chip used by the wifi card will dictate your next step.
