Belkin Wireless G on Angstrom linux


I am currently using Angstrom ver
which works fine for all my needs especially wifi network which i need
very badly
but the problem is its booting takes atleast 45 sec to boot
but i wanted
boot times minimum as possible..

I generated a narcissus angstrom build with minimum components but
all kernel modules i got an image which i wrote on sd card and booted
the beagle
I chose matchbox X11 environment and i got booting time of 20 sec
which is ok
but now my belkin wireless G USB adaptor does not work..

I have tried many things such as copying the files required for my
belkin adaptor..
manually installing the packages rt73 which is required for my
wireless adaptor
which is F5D0705 Belkin Wireless G USB adaptor

has anyone got Belkin wireless G USB adaptor to work on any Narcissus
angstrom image..

Information from dmesg, ifconfig, iwconfig etc. may give some some indication of what's wrong.


initially when kernel is booting the bootup messages show that Belkin
Wireless USB G adaptor is
connected but messages are shown as

usb 1-1.4: new high speed USB device using musb_hdrc and address 5
usb 1-1.4: device v050d p705a is not supported
usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=050d, idProduct=705a
usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-1.4: Product: Belkin 54g USB Network Adapter
usb 1-1.4: Manufacturer: Belkin
udev[68]: starting version 165

ifconfig does nothing
iwconfig gives as message

lo no wireless extensions


i also tried copying the .ko file related to my belkin wireless G
adaptor from the image in which it works to the new image but still
same problem
please let me know it anything else is possible as i have to setup
internet for my project

Thanks in advance..

It seems Belkin uses different chipsets in their dongles. Check if you have the zd1211rw module. Some use the rt73 and rt2500 modules also.
If none of those work, the linux networking/linux-networking lists would be the place to get a solution.
