Wireless USB Adapter F5D6050 help

Post by sb_linux » Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:09 pm

Hello,

I am new to Linux and I need help configuring my wireless USB Adapter.

Background:
- Newly installed Mint
- Able to access via ethernet cable
- Belkin Wireless USB Adapter not working (802.11b; model number: F5D6050)
- Typed: lsusb in console which shows: ID 050d: 0050 Belkin Components F5D60f0 802.11b Wireless Adapter v2000 (Atmel at76c503a)

So now I do not know what to do next. Any help will do. Thanks.

I was able to go on Network Manager to login to my router but could not connect. I think it's just the adapter issue now because I tested mint on my dummy laptop and I was able to connect via WiFi easily. So two things:

1. Your tutorial helped but I might have to move on unless you have other suggestions.
2. The other problem that I came across was that my Update Manager wanted to update my kernel and suggested that atmel-firmware will be removed which was counter to what you were trying to do.

Thanks for your time helping out.

I did the following as required:

sudo apt install atmel-firmware

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
amd64-microcode intel-microcode iucode-tool
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
linux-firmware linux-generic linux-image-generic linux-kernel-generic
The following NEW packages will be installed:
atmel-firmware
