    No issue's there. Then the only thing (as a last resort) is to upgrade your kernel or update your firmware...

    Re: Belkin Wireless adapter issues

    And would you be able to reply with the best way to update the firmware for the adapter?

    I think you already have the latest version, but since I can't check for sure I want to ask you to provide the output of:

    Code:
    md5sum /lib/firmware/rt*
    Btw, upgrading firmware is nothing more than moving files and rebooting. We can easily restore to the original state.

    Too bad, that's the same version the linux-firmware repository has :/. I guess your only and last resort is to upgrade your kernel and give a bleeding edge kernel a shot. I do not know of any PPA that has 3.6 for precise.

    As a normal user:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude -R install gcc make bzip2
    wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/linux-3.6.tar.bz2
    tar -xjf linux-3.6.tar.bz2
    cd linux-3.6
    # cp the attachment [1] of this post inside this directory and rename it as '.config'
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo make modules_install
    Above procedure installs a new kernel alongside the kernel provided by Ubuntu, reverting to the older versions should be no problem. Make sure you know how to access the Grub bootloader menu in order to select new / old kernels. This new kernel can also easily be removed.

    Reboot and select the new kernel in your grub menu. When you boot, confirm you are running the new kernel by opening a terminal and typing:

    Code:
    uname -r
    This should mention something which starts with 3.6. Then test your wireless. There are 4 releases between 3.2 and 3.6 (which means a lot has changed), I think you have a good chance of getting your USB working.

    Re: Belkin Wireless adapter issues

    Eh? Is aptitude not installed by default anymore?

    try:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gcc make bzip2
    Instead.

    Re: Belkin Wireless adapter issues

    I suppose it would help if I knew better how to go about doing that. Command line is something that I have never been good with. I apologize.
