Re: Belkin wireless card

Do you have ndiswrapper installed? It should be under either preferences or administration in the main menu. If yes, then see if the windows driver is available online from the manufacturer (google is a wonderful thing). Then download it and open it from inside ndiswrapper and apply (restart may be ...
