    Exclamation Belkin F5D8053 USB adapter

    Hi, I am looking at buying a Belkin F5D8053 USB adapter for Ubuntu 10.10. I am hearing a lot of things about having to install the Rt2870 driver before I can use it, is this true. If so can someone please tell me how to install it before I buy the adapter.

    Re: Belkin F5D8053 USB adapter

    The driver rt2870sta is built in to the kernel in Ubuntu 10.10. Your device will likely be claimed by another driver rt2800usb. This can be easily fixed with an addition to the blacklist file. If this is an N device and you require N speeds, I suggest you search this forum for rt2870sta and N. Several posters have reported difficulty.

    Post back if you need additional guidance.

    I think I'll just test and see what happens, hopefully it will work straight out of the box seeing as the driver is already installed I'm Ubuntu 10.10

    Re: Belkin F5D8053 USB adapter

    Any update on how this worked out of the box? I'm using 10.10 and I am thinking of getting this adapter if I can get a confirmation.


    Thanks!

    Chili555,

    Actually I have this Belkin USB Adapter F5D8053 , its an N speed one, and I would love to use it under Ubuntu 10.10, in the past I tried to make it work without success under earlier Ubuntu version...

    So as a matter of fact i could use some guidance to sort this piece out...

    Thanks,

    Viktor

    Your device is supported by the driver module r8192s_usb that's built in to recent kernels. Sometimes, there is a problem with firmware. Let's see if there are any messages about it. Please run and post:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe r8192s_usb
    dmesg | grep 819
    Thanks.

    sudo modprobe r8192s_usb

    It gives no output at all after hitting the enter key..

    dmesg | grep 819 gives me the following:
