    Default Belkin Wireless F5D7051

    Hello, I have recently bought a Belkin F5D7051 wireless network adapter and it isn't getting detected by BackTrack 4.

    Is it compatible, and if so how can I resolve this issue.

    Any help would be appreciated

    That card has a broadcom chipset (google:f5d7051+chipset) and accordingly to the (really) few stuff i've red about it, you'll have to use ndiswrapper.

    I took your advice and tried installing the broadcom drivers into the ndiswrapper, but to no avail. However, I would like to note I am a beginner in Linux and any help given will allow me to gain a further understanding of this OS and BackTrack, even if it turns out to be wrong.
