View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 connection drops with Belkin Components F5D7050A Wireless Adapter

I have v2 of the Belkin Components F5D7050A Wireless Adapter running on itrepid ibex with latest updates etc, after 20-30 minutes the connection freezes and the wi-fi indicator shows as still cnnected...

I see only one other such thread with a similar problem, but surely there must be another way to fix than having to physically un-plug the card to reset?

I've read somewhere Belkin drivers are not open source, is this part of the problem?

How do I run a report from a terminal?

The next time the card crashes, please immediately open up a terminal from the Applications>Accessories menu, run the following commands and post the output here:

dmesg | tail -50
lspci -nn
uname -mr
sudo iwlist scan
lshw -C Network
