    Hi there, I am no expert and what I am going to suggest to you is info I have read on this forum - amended slightly to suit your wireless adapter.

    Try at your own risk !!!

    It is strongly recommended that you copy the code that needs to be executed (from a Terminal window) below to a .txt file to your Ubuntu machine via a usb dongle to miminise human typo errors.
    Open this .txt file and copy and paste the code into the Terminal window of the Ubuntu machine (with the wireless adapter problem).

    Go to :
    Applications, Accessories, Terminal

    Code:
    lsusb
    Check the output to make sure that your device ID is:

    050d:935a
    If it matches, do this:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/network_drivers.rules
    Put in/add one long line in the opened file

    Code:
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="050d", ATTR{idProduct}=="935a", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -qba rt2870sta"
    Proofread carefully(ensuring that the opened file will be saved in the /etc/udev/rules.d directory), save and close gedit.

    Next do this:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/network_drivers.conf
    Put in/add one long line in the opened file

    Code:
    install rt2870sta /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta $CMDLINE_OPTS; /bin/echo "050d 935a" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id
    Proofread carefully(ensuring that the opened file will be saved in the /etc/modprobe.d directory), save and close gedit

    Reboot

    Good luck and let us know if it works.

    PS: most of the above info is modified from this link posts #32 and #58 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1419504&page=6

    Update:
    The above procedure works - see post #6

    Re: Belkin F6D4050 v1

    Am I supposed to do all of this with the USB adapter plugged in ? Or plug it in later, after everything has been done?

    And thanks for the reply..

    Hi, try plugging in later after everything has been done.

    If unsuccessful, leave the wireless adapter in and reboot again.

    Worst case scenario, you can 'undo' the process by executing the code again and removing the lines that you have added into the two files ie network_drivers.rules and
    network_drivers.conf

    Good luck and post back.

    Talking Re: Belkin F6D4050 v1

    So, yea i plugged the adapter in, and then did lsusb and it can see that it is a Belkin Component. Then without removing the Adapter i followed the two following ways to put the lines in the folders. While doing so, i noticed that those files didn't already exist. When i was done with that i just rebooted my machine and Voila it worked although i had to put in the WPA key but after that everything went superb and now i am replying through that very network..

    Thanks a lot and a lot and a lot..

    Re: Belkin F6D4050 v1

    Hi there am wondering if your output of lsusb :

    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components

    was obtained before or after you executed the code lines.

    Please also post the output of lsmod if you still cannot connect to wireless network.

    Thanks

    Update: ignore above. Congratulations.

    As I do not own the wireless adapter that you have and for the benefit of readers, could you explain what you meant in red above.



    If your wireless adapter was recognised by lsusb before executing the two code lines, the procedure in post #2 may not be necessary.

    A simpler way could be:

    Go to : Applications > Accessories > Terminal

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    The text editor gedit will open the file blacklist.conf
    Add the following line to the end ot the opened file.


    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    Proofread carefully. Save and close gedit.

    Reboot.

    Thanks

    UPDATE:
    The above simpler method does not work - based on feedback (see post #12)
