Re: belkin wireless adaptor

The wireless adapter probably needs you to install a driver for it. That's a safe guess anyway. If the disk you mentioned is the disk that came with the device, then it almost certainly does not have a Linux driver. I would start by discovering the wireless chipset. If it is using the PCI bus, then this command in a Fedora terminal might do that...
Code:
lspci
If it is using the Universal Serial Bus, then this maybe give some useful information...
Code:
lsusb
Post the Network controller and Ethernet controller lines from lspci and all of lsusb. Maybe somebody will recognize the chipset in the lspci output or the vendor:device ID number in the lsusb output and know something for you to do
