I have a Belkin N150 USB Wireless Network Adapter and a Belkin N150 Wireless Router. I cannot seem to get NetworkManager to connect to the internet. I have blacklisted the 9.10 staging driver and associated rt files. I have downloaded and built the ralink driver. The light flashes on the usb but I cannot connect to internet.

I am not sure what the ra0 is telling me but what about the Access Point: Not-Associated statement? Does that mean that the network adapter is not connecting to the router?

I would appreciate any help.

OK. No replies? So, evidently this is a problem that no one can solve? I like ubuntu but am not liking the support. I would really appreciate any help!
