Thread: Wireless G USB Adapter problems :(

  1. #1

    Angry Wireless G USB Adapter problems :(

    I have openSUSE 11.1


    Ok I have a Belkin or as I like to call it a belchin lol, but anyways I have a Belkin Wireless G USB adapter its code it F5D7050 and it wont work with KDE openSUSE my brother spent 2 hours trying to fix the problem...
    We tried Ndiswrapper with the correct driver and when we tried to use that module it wouldnt display any networks....
    Using the Default module it could see networks and connect to them but when we launched a browser it wouldnt connect.
    Any help would be great.....

    Please go to the wireless subforum and read the 3 stickies at the
    beginning of that section. You will learn how to report the
    information that we need to tell you how to get your device running.

    Incidentally, we do not suggest the usage of ndiswrapper and the
    Windows driver until all other options are exhausted.

    Have a look here.. There are two references to your device:
    HCL/Network Adapters (Wireless) - openSUSE

    If you Open Yast - Network Devices - Network Settings
    Does it give any detail about your device?

    Ok, thanks for the quick reply.
    I saw the info on that page you were talking about it said that yast worked out of the box with my adapter with openSUSE 11.1, I use SUSE 11.1 so it should work right?

    Any way the info you wanted from yast:
    model: F5D7050 v5012
    chipset/driver: rtl8187

    I have never used a USB Wireless device. But if in Yast you switch to Network Manager for managing the network, how do you get on configuring the connection from the NetworkManager in the tray?
    You'll need to scan for a new access point
    Setup the SSID and network security WPA key...etc..

    Hi
    And I wrote one of them I used YaST to configure as well as the
    network manager in Gnome with it on a via motherboard, worked fine for
    me.

    As lwfinger advised, provide the info.....

    Thank you caf9246 for the endorsement. I don't want to pat myself on
    the back too hard, but I am also one of the authors of the rtl8187 driver!

    That device _WILL_ work. It doesn't need external firmware or any
    other fancy stuff; however, it will work better with the
    compat-wireless package for your kernel than it will with the standard
    2.6.27 kernel of 11.1. If you do not want to install that package,
    then you might consider getting 11.2, either the current RC2, which is
    very stable, or the final release when it comes out.

    See how much information you get when you finally tell us which device
    you really have?
