    *new User* having problems installing wireless driver

    hi guys

    im new to the whole ubuntu o/s world and after hearing so much about it and being amazed from what i have been seeing iv just downloaded it via wubi just to give it a try.

    so iv sat down to do the first step of connecting my desktop to the internet and after twiddeling my thumbs for over an hour i thought i wud come here for some friendly advice.

    i have a belkin wireless network adaptor which connects to the adsl wireless routor outside

    i have the drivers (Belkin F5D 7050v1) saved on my usb memory stick but i just can not install it

    what i need to know is: can i install this driver onto abuntu? and if so how?

    quick replys would be apreciated.


    cheers guys

    (See the end of the post) seems to suggest using ndiswrapper.

    Try this page for step-by-step instructions on using ndiswrapper:
