Exclamation Wireless usb help

Hello,
I am new here and to Fedora. I just loaded F17 and i love it. I have a Toshiba L675 core i3 Laptop with a realtec 8188ce wireless card built in, which is working just fine. I also have a usb Belkin 750DB F9L1103 which i think is a relatively new model from Belkin. I wanted to know if there was a way to get it working in Fedora. It works great in windows 7. Is there a driver i can get for linux that will work for this adapter and if so where would i find it and how do i need to install it? Thanks in advance.

Re: Wireless usb help

What kind of wireless chips does it use?
Code:
lsusb -v
What happens when you plug it in?

Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages

George, Thanks for your reply. This is the info that was shown in terminal after the lsusb command:

I am not sure of the chipset and i know that is a factor when try to match the correct driver. I am assuming its all made by belkin but not 100% certain about the chipset.

Probably not supported yet. Try ndiswrapper ;-)
