Problem with installing wireless drivers.

Postby soloingbastard » Sat Sep 22, 2007 14:11

Hey, i figured having used Sabayon loop 2 for long enough and although it being absolutley great, was absolutley prositive, the new version would just be that bit better. Little did I know, that all that strenous hard work of setting up mz annoying Belkin F5D7050 rt2500usb would all go to waste.
Also, when i go net-setup, i see 2 things pointing to my wireless device, and neither functioning in any way, would removing them in any way help? (shown in the picture below)

Also, when I try to install these drivers, i get this weird error, that i dont know how to fix or change or do anything with, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much, below i've posted a picture with the outputs.

I just use Ndiswrapper with my Belkin F5D7000v7. Easy as 1,2,3

#ndiswrapper -i "driver"
#ndiswrapper -m
#modprobe ndiswrapper


voila!

where do i get the driver?
as I remember, the ndiswrapper is a painstaking process, that takes ages and gets you knowwhere, if i could fix this that would be great.
