Belkin N Wireless Adapter - Ubuntu help

  Shark boy 19:20 18 Jul 2009

Hi, I need to get access to the internet via my newly-installed Ubuntu desktop PC. It makes my PC run faster ;-), but the only problem is that it won't recognise my N Wireless Adapter from Belkin. I have looked on the Belkin website - to go to it click here - but it says that there are no Linux drivers available for it. Is there any way I could somehow write my own driver for it or use the windows driver by installing another program?

Thanks dudes,

i presume you are using a usb wireless adaptor?
if you have a wired connection, connect to the internet then press
system/administration/hardware drivers

ubuntu will search for and can install proprietary drivers.
or possibly use synaptic and search for 'belkin drivers'

check out the ubuntu forums click here
as it is a great source of help.
