Driver for Belkin f5d7050 v5000 wireless Adapter?


Where can I find the driver(s) for a Belkin F5D7050 Version 5000 Wireless Adapter? I guess it doesn't matter if it is a Linux driver or a Windows driver as long as I can install it using ndiswrapper. I think having THE correct driver will solve my problem of not being able to establish a connection to my Wireless Access Point.

Peacedog, First off, it's all greek to me. I am a novice, so take that into consideration when your analysis of the data dump is done. Having said that, here it is (sorry to be so late in responding):

We'll need the output from both commands. The lspci command from above should tell us what card/chip you have.

Good luck. ;-)

About the returns

Peacedog, it didn't dawn on me to send whatever returned from the first query, because nothing came back; only from the second query. Unknowingly, I tried again to see what I'd missed and then it hit me that there was nothing. In case it is significant, my computer's running Ubuntu 10.04.

Peacedog, here are the results. I'm surprised the system has correctly detected the Wireless Adapter, but has not yet (apparently) found and installed the driver for the Belkin f5d7050 adapter. When I, for the very first time, connected the adapter, after some moments, its indicator light began flashing but I was unable to make the connection to my Wireless Access Point - which I had been able to make from my TiVo some five years ago.
