I would assume in this case that you are using Windows Vista.
this is because the CD will not load for Vista as all you need are the drivers off of the CD and the adapter plugged in
1. Put the CD in the drive.
2. Go to start search then type in device manager
3. Select it from the list.
4. Look for an exclamation point on one that would say network adapter. If the network adapter shows up click on the plus sign and if you see linksys there then it has been installed.

To use the adapter.
1. Go to control panel
2. Go to network and internet.
3. Go to network and sharing center
4. Go to manager wireless networks on the left side.
5. Click on add then add a network
6. Select your network from the list and connect.
7. If it asks for the network key that is your networks wireless password.

I get this error when trying to connect to my network after I loaded the drivers for the adapter. "Windows unable to find certificate to log you on to the network." Then the PC says it is...

This is often the case when an adaptor is told to use the wrong security protocols for a network.

You need to ensure that you set the security to match your existing router settings eg.
WEP, WPA etc
Then you also need to match the authentication used eg TKIP AES etc.

In addition some routers can be set up to pre-allow devices by IP and subnet (192.168.x.x and 255.255.255.x respectivly)

All these thing need to be in place before you cann access the network.

If you are tech savvy inthis area then you will know what i mean and be able to take it from there.
If however you are not network savvy you may want to call a friend who is and can finnish the setup for you.

If you used the installation CD that came with the adaptor it should have stepped you through most of this to the point of being able to make a connection

If not put in the CD and start it up as it should get you going.

The setup is also available as a free download from the "support" section on the belkin web site.
Just select your adaptor and operating system.
Take note of the adaptor version as that is important !

Dlink wireless router

See if you can log into the your browser type:

Username: admin
leave the password field blank.

there should be a setup button (I don't know if the setup program is in the router, but from the instruction manual, it should be).

Most of the settings should be the default settings, and there is some help listed. If your internet is working right now, it's probably not the router. You might try to get the software that originally came on the CD.

Wirless driver for linux

hi linksys doenot have the wireless drivers for linux but you can try the following steps:
-download the windows drivers. Extract them to c:\temp\linksys
- Now burn them or put them on a media or somthing so you can transfer these files over to linux (note: linux wont beable to extract the exe file)
- Download ndiswrapper for linux located at
- Now make sure you have all the development tools installed in fedora
- Now download dhcpcd from
- log into your linux box as root
- Now make make sure all the files (*gz files, and linksys driver files) are in the root partition on the linux machine (/root/wireless_driver) if "wireless_driver" is not there make the directory (which u will have to do) "mkdir /root/wireless_driver"
- now at the command prompt (terminal) go into the "wireless_driver" directory "cd /root/wireless_driver"
- now type "tar xvfpz ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz"
- "cd ndiswrapper-0.12"
- "make install"
- "cd .."
- "tar xvfpz dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4.tar.gz"
- "cd dhcpcd-1.3.22"
- "./configure"
- "make && make install"
- "cd .."
- "source /etc/profile" (note: you might want to edit root's .bashrc and add source /etc/profile there, some how fc3 doesnt have root source /etc/profile for some reason)
- "cd /root/wireless_driver/WMP54GS_20040423/Drivers"
- "ndiswrapper -i BCMWL5.inf"
- "ls /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5" u should get a list of alot file in here
- "modprobe ndiswrapper"
- "dmesg wlan0" show see wlan0 if its there your good if not then somthings wrong - please post everything thats comes out of dmesg "dmesg > demout"
- now for a little script open your favorite text editor and copy the following code:
#Sample ndiswrapper script - By: Derrick Rose
#Load ndiswrapper module
echo "Starting Ndiswrapper Driver..."
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
#Setup Essid
echo "Setting up ESSID..."
iwconfig wlan0 essid "your essid here"
#Setup WEP Key if you have one
#Uncomment below for WEP
#echo "Setting up KEY..."
#iwconfig wlan0 key yourkeyhere
#Setting up DHCP on wlan0
echo "Starting DHCP on wlan0 [ 10 sec timeout ]"
dhcpcd -t 10 wlan0

- the script above will setup your wireless card for. Now save this to a file in roots directory (/root) called wireless
- "chmod +x wireless"
- to run manually type "./wireless" as root
- If you want to automaticly load on startup do the following
- "cat wireless >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local"
restart the computer..adn then check

That device shouldn't be popping up as a drive letter. Only flash drives to that.

Sometimes the setup wizzards in Linksys do goofy things. If its loaded it up I would unilstall the Linksys sofware, restart the computer, plug the network apapter in and let Windows load up the drivers you need from the CD and don't use the wizzard.
