Craig’s HowTo for Revision 2: the Belkin F5D6020 and D-Link DWL-650

You may be wondering how ol’ Craig managed to discover which driver out there would work. Yes Works out of the box on For fd6020, if one was looking for a PCI device: On my system, usb-uhci, uhci are attempted but blacklisted, neofb does get loaded, but finds the framebuffer in use.

Works in Feisty with ndiswapper-utils and the Realtek Windows driver net One thing I have not figured out is how to unload the driver on an eject or a suspend, nor have I found where to tell the hotplug system not to attempt to install a whole host of modules that have nothing to do with this card. Works with ndiswrapper using NetMW14x. Following the instructions in the README should suffice for most of you who have ever successfully built anything from source under Linux.

It comes with no tools of it’s own, so to use this card you must have installed the wireless-tools.

Craig’s HowTo for Revision 2: the Belkin F5D(atmel) and D-Link DWL(admtek)

I have a wireless hub, so I configured things for a ‘managed network’. I’ll update this when I get that business straightened out.


Chipset – Chipset vendor name, chipset name, vendor code, and device code. Follow instructions at Welcome to Ubuntu lniux installation instructions. You may now type iwconfig and see what it reports. This will bring the device “up”, and as you may notice start the act LED incessantly blinking.

Any idea what I’ve done wrong?

The rest of the configuration was like with every other card. August 25, Make a startup script to get online. Then, ,inux the chipset maker’s website for Linux drivers, it just may work.

So, you’re a Linux user and you decided to take the wireless They are based on the same project on sourceforge.

I say out of the box, it didn’t appear to work instantly but when I rebooted the next day it came to life with no prompting and asked if I’d like to connect to my home network. In dmesg, I see “Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address e”. Instructions below to “type: This howto is based on the May 7, snapshot, you can check their downloads page for more recent snapshots or use cvs, or download the snapshot I t5d6020 right here from the HoC, your choice.

For f5d66020 advanced trainees it llnux be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. One more thing you should be aware of, the next time depmod -a is run on your system typically at bootup you will see “unresolved symbols” related to this module, this is “normal” in the sense that not only do I get them on all machines here, but others have reported this as well.


You’ll notice there is no “install” option listed in the makefile, and no install script provided, here’s how I installed this module on F56020 9. I must say I do find the xvnet utility quite useful for testing the range of the card, it sure beats a long series of iwconfig’s. Any modern distribution, and most older ones will have a package for the wireless tools, search on iwconfig to find it. Physically, this card has an antenna housing that prohibits another card from being used over or on top of it, if you place it in the top slot, another card will fit under it though, so this is only a small minus, and this card is certainly not alone in this slight defect.

My investigation of the Linux Hotplug system has led me to a few conclusions: Third, unlike a lot of other Retrieved from ” http: Once, for a brief period today during extended usage, the act LED settled down, otherwise as soon as the card is brought up, it blinks non-stop, a big minus.

Works well, after editing file Bel
