    How to get Belkin Wireless USB Driver working on Ubuntu.

    A common problem for most people with them. This tutorial Applies to the Belkin N150 F6D4050. 100& Success rate.

    1. Open Application>Accessories>Terminal.

    2. Type in lsusb

    3. Your device ID should read out 050d:935a

    4.If it does read out, in the same terminal, type sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/network_drivers.rules

    5. A File should open, in this file type ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="050d", ATTR{idProduct}=="935a", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -qba rt2870sta"

    6. Save and close this file, then in the same Terminal type sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/network_drivers.conf

    7. Another file should open, similar to step 5. Type in install rt2870sta /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta $CMDLINE_OPTS; /bin/echo "050d 935a" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id

    9. Save and Close this file. In the terminal either type sudo reboot or just restart your pc as normal.

    10. Upon login, a rectangular box will appear saying, wireless networks are available.

    Glad I could help

    Just because you have more beans than I, it does not mean you know more.
