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.
