Trying to get Belkin f5d8053 usb device to work.

I am trying to get the belkin devie to connect to a network

I have failed using wine. (Not entirely sure why and would prefer not to use wine.)

Another website suggested trying to get the .inf file from the .exe driver but have so far been unable to find the .inf file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is in the newbie forum for good reason.

Run 'lspci' as root to get the exact device name. Then search the net for a linux module. Compile and install the module, voila.
