    Belkin Wireless Card 26th Oct 05 at 12:00 AM
    I'm experimenting with linux on my Mother-in-laws computer, risky but I don't want to screw mine up first, however I can't seem to get hold of a driver for the Belkin 11g wireless card. Any idea where I may get one? The disk only shows M.S drivers.

    Firsly it woudl be a good idea to whip the card out and note down its exact model number and specification usually found on the main chipset of the card. Without a bit more research i couldnt tell you exactly what drivers you will need as i'd need this info and the distribution of linux you are using. Most likely a prism chipset but i cant be sure.

    Dig inside; inside is the fountain of good, and it will forever flow, if you will forever dig.
