    Default Belkin F5D7050 v5000

    Hi i need some help with this wifi usb stick. I brought it thinking it was the v4001 which is listed on the HCL, it apears to have a Realtek 8187 chipset, after checking the HCL this is supported but after trying to install the drivers i had no luck, so i then tried ndiswrapper, this time the light on the stick glowed, but no networks were detected in knetworkmanager, i tryed conecting by manualy entering the details but thiis just shows configureing device for a long time until i close it. I am at a loss to what to do, this is the 3rd card i have tryed now and i am running out of options.

    did you install the correct drivers? have you configured it in yast, with ndiswrapper set to the module name?

    follow this ndiswrapper how to

    Howto's

    scroll down a bit to find it.
    make sure you have the correct drivers installed and to an accessible (read/write permissions) in your home directory.

    The drivers were correct, and i double checked and made sure ndiswrapper was set as module in yast, still nothing.

    I have now formatted and installed openSUSE 11 and to my knowledge the drivers are built into the kernel now. I did a modprobe rtl8187 but the card is not lighting up.

    You need to more specific than 'still nothing'. e.g. post
    the output from 'ndiswrapper -l' once you have the
    Windows-driver in place.

    According to:
    NDISwrapper
    entries 30-34, it should work with ndiswrapper.

    Ndiswrapper -l shows that the device is present and driver is installed with no errors, any way i have installed SUSE 11 now and the drivers should be in the kernel. I modprobed rtl8187 and i didnt get any response from the card dmesg shows nothing wrong

    confirm, have you configured the card in yast, with correct module name entered (ndiswrapper) ?

    You might want to try modprobe rt73usb. I have the same Belkin Wifi stick
    and the kernel driver seems to be rt73usb.
