Ubuntu in Belkin 802.11g Wireless G USB Network Adapter

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I have installed Ndisgtk on my computer so that it allows Ubuntu to use the Windows driver for my Belkin 802.11g Wireless G USB Network Adapter. However, it is not working. How can I resolve the issue?

Hi Priscilla,

It would have been much clearer if you included both the version of Ubuntu as well as the model of the USB Belkin Network Adapter you’re using so that we can work at the most appropriate troubleshooting method for you. Here are a few general tips that you can check:

1. Make sure the wireless security on your router is set to disabled. There are issues when security is enabled on your router. How to do that is dependent on the router that you’re using but mostly they can be found under Security settings on your router’s page.

2. Check out the links below for troubleshooting guides. These are official UBUNTU documentation on wireless connectivity. The first link shows you a step by step approach on how to do troubleshooting wireless networking in Ubuntu. The second link shows you what USB drivers are currently working out of the box for Ubuntu and known issues for Belkin Wireless Network cards ( PCI, EXPRESSCARD34, PCMCIA and USB ). I would recommend going through the second link and look for your USB network adapter model to see any known issues and working solutions.

1. Under the UBUNTU forums, I also found a similar issue but again that depends on the model of your wireless adapter. You can look it up here:


I do hope that the above links helped you in getting your system to work.
