Belkin Wireless-G USB adapter in Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy

I’ve got a Belkin F5D7050 wireless USB adapter. It didn’t work under Ubuntu. This is because Edgy ships an old fucked version of the driver. If Ubuntu is loading the “rt73usb” driver, and it’s not working for you, that’s why. Download and install the CVS version as per the Ubuntu wiki instructions and it works perfectly. Superb.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
