I guess there is no drivers for this card as yet...... after reading a lot of posts on here I see that the manufacturer doesn't seem to want to support Linux !?!?

Are they MAD ?

Don't they know that there are some Major players supporting Linux now ???

I know IBM are running thousands and thousands of Linux boxes and some of the other 'big boys' are too!

I think I'll send my card back and get one which is made by a less short sighted company

Sigh....

before you give up, could you post the FCCID of the card?

Don't bother with the FCCID stuff now, the bcm means broadcom which means giving up now is certainly an option...sadly.

This may shed some light on the reasons why this chipset goes unsupported via open source:

Hi,

I take part in a thread about this card and SuSe Linux. There are drivers available that *DO* work. They cost money tho (11) but they do work, which is important.

Look around for a thread titled Belkin 54g and SuSe 8.2. The driver is made by Linuxent. Search on google for their site.

It's a shame that it costs money but hey, its the best we got right now.

Rioch.

use windows driver and ndiswrapper

Hello,

Got the same card (Belkin 802.11b54g, F5D7010) as you and made it work by using the ndiswrapper. You can find it here http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ .

Hope this helps. It might be that linuxent is selling a look-a-like of ndiswrapper ?

Greetings,
Patrick

Any more detail?

Anybody who has got this working got any detailed instructions? - I have followed the instructions with ndiswrapper, but when I modprobe ndiswrapper in, nothing happens (lsmod shows it to be un-used)..

Any ideas? (again, rh9, tried with latest CVS version, and pre-built RPMS)

pdejong (or anyone else who's got the F5D7010 working),

What driver did you use? I've managed to get my PCI card working with ndiswrapper (the F5D7000), but not (yet) the laptop card version (F5D7010).

By the way I found that the driver from the Belkin site didn't work with the PCI card (nothing happens after modprobe ndiswrapper), but a driver I found somewhere else (a site linked from the ndiswrapper page at sourceforge, I think) worked fine.

I now have it working (with custom 2.6.4 kernel). It works with the drivers from the OEM driver CD.

How did you get this working? What OEM Driver cd? My friend wants Linux, but I can't get the internet working on his machine, and he has the same card...

I've got this card working also under linux, using kernel 2.6.6. I simply followed the instructions at ndiswrapper and used the driver than came on the cd packaged with the card.

Mandrakelinux 10.0 Official with 2.6.3-4mdk
Belkin F5D7010 WLan card 802.11g
Belkin F5D7230 Wireless Router 802.11g

OK, I followed instructions on how to use ndiswrapper on .http://www.linux-infopage.de/show.ph...rappercentrino. It's for a centrino but the principle is the same. I get my Belkin F5D7010 recognized and
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up
is ok. But
Code:
dhclient
returns
Code:
No DHCPOFFERS received
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping
Same when booting. The log says:
Code:
net_cnx_up: activating "wlan0"
ifup: Determining IP information for wlan0...
ifup: failed: no link present. Check cable?
The router (also Belkin) works ok with cable connection and both (card and router/AP) work ok in WinXP. This is just to prove that the devices are not broken.
DHCP works fine with the same router and the same installation with the normal NIC (aka eth0). So the dhcp client seems to be ok as well. It must be a configuration problem. Unfortunately the Mandrake Control Center is no help because it insists on using a wrong wlan module for a SiS device which is not present at all.

Any help out there?

Small addendum:
I tried with a static IP for wlan0 and there was no error at bootup.

My /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 reads:
Code:
DEVICE=wlan0
BOOTPROTO=static   #   otherwise this would read 'dhcp'
IPADDR=192.168.2.10   # with dhcp this would be empty
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.2.0
BROADCAST=255
ONBOOT=yes
DHCP_HOSTNAME=lappi
NEEDHOSTNAME=yes
ifconfig says:
Code:
wlan0 Protocol:Ethernet   Hardware Address xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
inet address:192.168.2.10 Bcast:255.0.0.0 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MTU:1500 Metric:1
etc.....
But I don't get any connection. The power LED on the card lights up when it is activated but the connection LED never lights up. So I assume that the connection between card and access point is still not there.

ping 192.168.2.1 (the router/AP IP) fails with "Destination Host Unreachable"

I am totally off the track. Obviously there's just some small thing I have forgotten to configure or set right. But which and how?
