Can't find a driver for Belkin F5D7051 Wireless G USB Network Adapter


I've searched and searched everywhere, but I just can't find a driver to use on Linux for the Belkin F5D7051 USB Wireless Adapter. I've tried using the 2nd driver recommended at, for the F5D7050, but they didn't seem to work (I couldn't find the first one). I've also tried using the driver that came with the USB device itself, but that seemed to crash the kernel when I used modprobe ndiswrapper.

Need to find a working driver! :P

Thanks in advance,

Do you know what the chipset is? From what I found doing some quick googling, it seems to be a "broadcom bcm4320 802.11g usb 2.0 transceiver", not the rt2500usb listed for the F5D7050 (which is the one I have).

Broadcom have Linux drivers on their support site. You might have some luck there?
