    Re: belkin usb

    I am suspicious that the driver you compiled doesn't actually cover your device:
    ID 050d:1103 Belkin Components
    Please post:
    Code:
    modinfo rt3573sta | grep 1103
    What is the name of the file you compiled?

    Re: belkin usb

    you're up early...dogs got me up as you were posting.

    Code:
    zack@zack-PC:~$ modinfo rt3573sta | grep 1103
    zack@zack-PC:~$
    I downloaded the package from the link provided by an earlier poster in this thread.

    see "linux driver" on the right hand side of the page.

    Edit**

    For clarity: DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_V2.5.0.0.tar.bz2

    -------------------------------------------

    As a side note, the .inf file directly from the install cd is "rt2870" and I have both it and the sys on hand if ndiswrapper would be a faster/easier route.

    Ah, haaa! The driver doesn't (yet) cover your device! Let's try to fix that. Look in the folder you extracted and open the file common/rtusb_dev_id.c with any text editor, such as gedit. Add a line as I've highlighted:
    Code:
    #endif /* RT35xx */
    #ifdef RT3573
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x3573)}, /* Ralink 3573 */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x7392,0x7733)}, /* Edimax */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x050D,0x1103)}, /* Belkin */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x0B05,0x17AD)}, /*ASUS */
    #endif /* RT3573 */
    	{ }/* Terminating entry */
    All of the text before and after remain unchanged. Proofread carefully twice, save and close gedit. Now recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_vx.x.x.x <--whatever and wherever you extracted
    sudo su
    modprobe -r rt3573sta
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    Any improvement?

    And bingo was his name-o!

    You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. I really appreciate your help on this... it would have taken me ages to figure this out.

    Thank you so much!

    Please don't forget that when a newer kernel image is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to recompile for the later kernel:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_vx.x.x.x <--whatever and wherever you extracted
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    Glad it's working. Have fun!

    Re: belkin usb

    I have installed Linux Mint 14 and I have the Belkin N750 db usb thing. I read all the details above, but some of the instructions involves downloading programs, how can I do that with only a non functioning usb adapter? I am not sure how I can access my internet with Linux. Can someone help me? I am using KDE.

    First, let's verify some details before we proceed. We will get some details from the terminal. Insert the device and open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and run and post:
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    lsusb
    Maybe there is an easier way.

    Nope. The desktop environment and the wireless driver and Network Manager are all different things. The k in kubuntu stands for KDE which is just a way to display all the graphical items you use. The underlying drivers, kernel, etc. are all the same.
