USB wireless not seen by network manager -- belkin f6d4050 v2
 
Hello,

I am trying to get a USB Belkin Wireless adapter (belkin f6d4050 v2) to work on CentOS 6. I am unable to get network manager to see any wireless adapter but it does appear through my messages log that the adapter is there. Below is the info I believe the be pertinent at this time. If you need more info please let me know and I will post.

Code:

Based on this and other info I found while searching I tried
Code:

Again thanks for any help that can be provided.

I do not have experience with this adapter, but it seems you do not have the driver installed. You may look around for it, seems like a possible download site is

wit_273 01-07-2013 12:03 PM

OK, I try downloading the driver and get errors from the getgo. Can someone help, Please? I know it is probably something very simple, but it is above my head :-). -George

OK,
did a little more research.

http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.p...eless-adapter/

claims rt2800usb driver works with it, just you need the firmware file rt2870.bin placed in /lib/firmware/

It is packaged with ubuntu in case you cannot find it elsewhere.

wit_273 01-07-2013 04:04 PM

Got it to work. Downloaded ndiswrapper from sourceforge and installed. Found my original CD for the card, in terminal went to the XP directory on the CD ran
Code:

ndiswrapper -i rt2870.inf
. Came up in network manager and was working. Too much stress for something so very simple :-). Thank you otoomet for your help, it didn't work for me but at least you offered assistance.
