    Eddie,

    I have found some wireless devices work straight of the box with Ubuntu and some require further work.

    What model card is it? Is it listed in Device manager? What happens when you attempt to activate it from within the network connection applet?

    It is listed in the device manager but i cant activate it , as there are no drivers installed for it etc.

    I do have a cd but this really doesnt do much good??

    Hi ZX

    I installed a couple of Belkin devices not long ago - a PCI 802.11g card, and a USB 802.11g device - both were a nightmare.

    I'd check the Belkin knowledge base first and foremost, to make sure it's *nix compatible, and where to obtain the required drivers (as they are obviously not on the CD).

    Then find instructions on the installation process and follow them to the letter. If you have the card in your machine now, take it out. If it's like the one I had, the card will never work if you install it first, then attempt the driver install.

    The card is a PCI 802.11g card. It is located in the device manager and even looks like its going to activate when i click that option , but in reality it just wonders for a minute? I says my card is active but the little light on the back tells me different.

    Ill try the belkin knowledgebase again see if i can find anything.

    cheers guys

    Just to keep you all in the pic, it seems i have to use something called Ndiswrapper and another driver which i managed to find etc, hopefully this will work
