Belkin F5U301 Wireless USB Hub

    I have two questions about installing the Belkin WIreles USB hub (UWB) in Linux.

    I'm running Fedora Core 3 and my kernel version is 2.6.10-1. It is configured with a 4K stack. I've posed the question to Belkin, and they haven't answered me yet. Does this driver work with a 4K stack? Does anyone know?

    When I install on Windows, there are actually devices installed. They are:
    DEVICE: UWB Dongle over USB --- DRIVER: USBFX2.sys --- INF: oem23.inf
    DEVICE: UWB Dongle Control --- DRIVER: FX2Control.sys --- INF: oem21.inf
    DEVICE: Wireless Hub Device --- DRIVER: WirelessHub.sys --- INF: oem24.inf

    This last one is not visible in Windows through the Device Manager
    DEVICE: UWB Dongle MAC       --- DRIVER: SWMAC.sys       --- INF: oem22.inf

    I have successfully installed oem23.inf and oem21.inf in Linux with ndiswrapper.

    Installing oem22 or oem24 display "Invalid Driver" when I do ndiswrapper -l

    The question is do I need all four drivers?

    Has anyone set up this device successfully with ndiswrapper?

      ndiswrapper doesn't support hub drivers.

        Ah-hah! I thought this might work since it's wireless, but I guess it's really for wireless network card drivers. Thank you for the answer. Back to the drawing board.
