    Red face Getting belkin n wireless 8053 working

    Hey as you probably guessed I suck at Linux (newbie area)

    I have got backtrack 2 and 3 on seperate discs and both are working fine

    but I have trouble with my wireless card, I will list everything I know about it here:

    Belkin wireless n dongle
    F5D8053
    v3000uk
    no current drivers for any operating system except windows
    Ralink chipset


    I opened it up and on the card it says

    "RT2770F
    GU2470D0
    0732ST"

    and near that it says "P/N: 14175120000J R01"

    I have been searching for 3 hours on this, I found a few ways but they were either way too complicated or just didn't work (most of them were all on ubuntu forums)

    I am happy to help in every single way possible I can (testing software etc etc) and would be glad to solve this problem, unless it has been solved?

    I am not sure what else I need to tell you, I will try basically anything to get it to work as I have never had internet on linux and would be very happy for a solution!

    Question Further details....

    Start up bt3 with the dongle (and if possible nothing else usb) plugged in then open a shell (black thing,bottom left of screen) and type:

    dmseg | grep usb

    followed by:

    lsusb

    and post up what the outputs read.

    TT

    Hey TT, Was wondering if this thread was rapped up else where or if it just died? I have the same USB NIC. Followed your post, here is what I got back:

    bt ~ # dmseg | grep usb
    -bash: dmseg: command not found

    bt ~ # lsusb
    Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 1 Device 6: ID 050d:815c Belkin Components
    Bus 1 Device 5: ID 0bda:0158 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 1 Device 4: ID 174f:1403
    Bus 1 Device 2: ID 0781:5406 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer Micro 4GB Flash Drive
    Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

    I boot BT3 from thumb drive as my dell mini 10 has no cd/dvd drive
