Default Belkin Wireless Card

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.

Try www.belkin.co.uk for a driver or something like www.driversguide.com.

For the driversguide.com site you will need a password to get signed in.
Username = drivers
password = all

Hope that helps
