    Can you provide the model of your Belkin wireless card?

    It also might help if you post the output of the terminal command 'lspci -v'. Please post this in code tags.

    Also, is it asking for your password, or is it asking for the network password?

    I have no idea what you mean or how to do what you want. It is a Belkin F5D 8053 N Wireless USB. When i go to connect the box that pops up is the Wireless Network Authentication Required, The setting is WPA personal. I hope this helps. I havent been able to find anything that really helps me. I am brand new to Linux.

    Ok I figured out how to do lspci and i do not see my wireless card listed. I also turned off security on my router and that did not help. where can i find a driver for Belkin F5D 8053?

    Please see the following link for information on getting this adapter working. If you have ANY questions on how to do the things in that link, please post back! We all know how confusing/intimidating some of this can appear when you are new to it, so we are here to help you!

    EDIT: I should add that after the driver is installed, you still have to provide the encryption type and the password/passphrase associated with it in order to connect to the router.

    PS - Since your adapter is a USB device, it won't show in the output of lspci. "ls" stands for "list" and "pci" means the PCI devices on your system, so "lspci" no matter what options are added will only show PCI devices.

    There is a similar command for USB devices, like your adapter - lsusb. Again, the "ls" stands for "list" and "usb" means the USB devices on your system, so "lsusb" will list the USB devices on your system.

    For both of these commands there are also options that can be used to isolate on a specific device, get more detail, etc. Most of the time when we are trying to help we just want the standard output.

    There may be exceptions:

    for example, to list the network adapters, we may ask you to do the following or others:

    lspci

    ifconfig
