    belkin usb

    Hello everyone. I have a small problem that I need advice on. I am running kubuntu 12.4 and i have a toshiba l675 laptop with a realtech 8188ce wireless built in adapter. I do not like the 8188ce and have some problems with it in linux. I bought a belkin n750 db usb adapter and i want to get it working on my kubuntu install. Is there a way to make that happen either by finding the correct drivers or useing the windows install cd and getting that to work in linux.? My machince is dual boot with win 7 and the belkin works great in windows and now i want to get it working in kubuntu. Thanks.

    Probably. Plug it in and open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    lsusb
    Thanks.

    Re: belkin usb

    This really sucks because every time I need to use the internet to solve the problem, I have to restart and boot into windows.

    http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/Belkin_F9L1103

    So, I've downloaded the driver listed from the above wiki, but the instructions are really convoluted.

    First of all, there are two sets of instructions. One is "Quick Start.txt" and the other "Quick Start DPO.txt" They conveniently forgot to mention what DPO stands for or which set to follow depending on what circumstances.

    Note: If you want to change os/linux/config.mk setting, please remove driver and reinstall.
    So, I at least found instructions and the driver, but can someone help me figure out how to follow these instructions?

    Please get a temporary ethernet connection and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    In the DPO folder that was created when you extracted the bz2, drill down to os/linux and open the file config.mk with any text editor such as gedit and:
    Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'.
    All the text before and after these two lines remains unchanged. Proofread, save and close gedit.

    I selected DPO because several other working Realtek drivers are labeled DPO. Now open a terminal:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_vx.x.x.x <--whatever and wherever you extracted
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    If you encounter any errors, stop, post them here and we'll try to fix them.

    @chili555

    I've seen you on numerous topics helping others get their usb adapters working... and i've tried to resolve my by those posts from you... but I just can't get it working.

    I too have the belkin n750 and have followed your above instructions to the T but I don't get anything showing I have any sort of wireless device at all.

    Here's what I have so far.

    lsusb:

    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 050d:1103 Belkin Components 
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 090c:1000 Silicon Motion, Inc. - Taiwan (formerly Feiya Technology Corp.) 64MB QDI U2 DISK
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:0053 Microsoft Corp. Optical Mouse
    iwconfig:

    Code:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    This is going in an old desktop.

    Not sure what else you'll need at this point. Your expertise would be greatly appreciated!!

    Awaiting reply and guidance.

    Re: belkin usb

    Let's have a look at:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    dmesg | grep rt3
    Thanks.

    Re: belkin usb

    As requested...

    Code:
    zack@zack-PC:~$ sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    [sudo] password for zack: 
    zack@zack-PC:~$ dmesg | grep rt3
    zack@zack-PC:~$
    I'm assuming this is bad as I don't get any output from it.

    I have a poker tourny in about an hour (7 central time) and won't be available until afterwards. Thanks for the quick response and your efforts!

    Edit**

    Also should have mentioned in the first post that this is on 12.04.

    Re: belkin usb

    It's good news and maybe bad news. You modprobed the driver and no error or warning emerged. Let's dig deeper; please be sure the device is inserted when you run:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    dmesg | grep -i rt2
    iwconfig
    rfkill list all
    Thanks.

    Re: belkin usb

    here you are sir...

    Code:
    zack@zack-PC:~$ sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    [sudo] password for zack: 
    zack@zack-PC:~$ dmesg | grep -i rt2
    [  164.318650] rtusb init rt2870 --->
    [  164.321064] usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870
    zack@zack-PC:~$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    zack@zack-PC:~$ rfkill list all
    zack@zack-PC:~$
    Device is plugged into a usb port on the back of the machine and the port is working. (tested usb mouse on it)

    This is where I got stuck with all other attempts as I get no output from these commands like I saw in other posts.
