Hi, I've been trying to follow this tutorial:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1382798&highlight=F5D8053

to get my Belkin F5D8053 Wireless Adapter working. I get so far as using the "make" command, but then encounter an error. This is the full terminal results:

Kernels >= 2.6.35 will fail to compile (make) the driver because the driver makes use of the functions usb_buffer_alloc() and usb_buffer_free() which were renamed in kernel 2.6.35

For a fix, see the red EDIT in this posting:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/hardware-compatibility/ralink-rt2870-based-usb-wireless-n-adapters-(ubuntu)/


Or, I've uploaded a pre-modified version of the driver that WILL compile on kernels >= 2.6.35 here:
