Okay. But if you still will be without a wired NIC connection to the Internet in Fedora 13, then it's three RPMs that you need to install (the driver kmod kernel module, kmod metapackage, and rt2870).

Or, if you will have a wired NIC connection to the Internet, then you need only to install those two RPMs for the RPM Fusion repo. Then you can install the driver files with yum.

P.S.: I'm sincerely sorry for the confusion swirling around in this thread. I tried my best to explain what I know about installing a kmod driver online and offline, and about the installing the kmod version v. the akmod version in both connection situations. If my words are responsible for the confusion, then I apologize and will retreat from here.

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

Ok. I have waped out Fedora 10, and reinstalled 13.
The two RPM packages have also been installed.

I used the uname -r command. Here is the running kernel
2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64

2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64
If you have a wired NIC connection to the Internet then install with yum...
Code:
su
yum install kmod-rt2870
If you do not have a connection to the Internet, then somehow download the driver files for your kernel and somehow transfer them to the Fedora filesystem...
kmod-rt2870-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64-2.1.2.0-6.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
kmod-rt2870-2.1.2.0-6.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
rt2870-2.1.2.0-2.fc12.noarch.rpm
Then open a terminal, change directories to their location, and install them all at once...
Code:
su
rpm -ivh *.rpm
Reboot and check the NetworkManager panel applet icon for available networks.

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

Ok the last time i was in the computer before, two available networks showed.
"Belkin" and "Green". Belkin had a normal icon next to it, and Green had a
lock showing on it's icon. I'm guessing it is a neighbor's wireless connection.
lol Anyway....

I went back in my computer. Put those three RPMs in it, but i couldn't install
them. Each one of them show an error message saying "Failed dependancies".

I went to the Network Manager Icon. Just Belkin shows as available network.
But when i click on Belkin, it tries to connect, but is unable to connect.

One possible explanation for that is you are attempting to install them one at a time. The rpm command will check for dependencies, but it will error out instead of handling them. When installed with rpm, these three packages must be installed all at the same time with the same rpm command. Either list all three packages by name in the rpm command or use that wildcard example I suggested. Another possibility is that you have the wrong three rpm files. For that, I recommend that you list the RPM files that you're attempting to install.

Now that makes me think maybe a built-in wireless kernel module is loaded. Otherwise, I wouldn't expect you to see any available networks before kmod-rt2870 has been installed. In the Ralink wireless HOWTO, people often have to blacklist some built-in modules for that reason. Apparently, the RPM Fusion kmods work better (I don't know because I don't use this driver). Take a moment to list the loaded modules and post that next...
Code:
lsmod | sort
P.S.: Anybody that owns a Belkin wireless adapter with PCI-ID number 050d:815c or anyone who uses the kmod-rt2870 or akmod-rt2870 drivers please free to help this person now.

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

Well those rt2800 and rt2x00 modules are the built-in stuff I was talking about. If you can't make a satisfactory connection with those, then I recommend blacklisting them like people often do when installing the Ralink kmods. It's possible that installing the Ralink kmods will do that automatically. I would go ahead and get those packages installed, reboot, and check lsmod again. You may find everything okay then. If not, they can be blacklisted manually.

So which three files have you downloaded, and what terminal command is not working to install them?

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

The three RPM packages. I tried installing them going to the path,
then using this command
-------------
rpm -ivh
-------------

Then a message saying
"failed dependancies."
It does that whenever i try installing any of those three RPM packages.

Here's the thing about that. To me, your words and what you post continue to suggest that you are attempting to install each package individually. So if you are doing that, then the rpm command will fail because those three packages are dependent upon each other. You must install all three of the RPM files at the same time in the same rpm command. If you do that and have the correct three packages, then the dependency issue will be satisfied and the command will work. In other words, like this again...
Code:
su
rpm -ivh *.rpm

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

Well, there could be some things left to do. Remember those built-in modules? See if they're still being loaded. Reboot and do this again (post it for the record, too)...
Code:
lsmod | sort
Next, confirm what you have installed (for the record)...
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -e kernel -e rt2870 | sort

Re: Belkin USB wireless adapter

Thread closed. It's too old to continue on with it. Too many things change in two years regarding wireless. And practically nobody wants to read through two pages of two-year-old posts to get to the end and see what you want. So why not just start a new thread, but post in English. Just do the best that you can with English, and things usually go satisfactorily. All of this is in the posting rules (and have good reasons for being). Maybe you should read the posting rules first of all.
