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
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.
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.
