I am trying to get a Belkin IEEE 802.11g USB WiFi Network Adapter to interface properly with my RPi. Upon checking
dmesg it is apparent there is an issue loading the firmware for the device:
[ 1358.358571] zd1211rw 1-1.5.4:1.0: couldn't load firmware. Error number -2
So my next step was to install ralink 0.28 + squeeze. [Editor note: firmware-ralink 0.28+squeeze ?]
I used the standard
dpkg command in terminal to perform the install of the firmware from the .deb file. Upon checking the firmware folder there is rl firmware files so I believe it has installed. But When looking at
lsusb (after reboot) to see my devices, the Belkin is still using the old firmware [Zydas ZD1211B]. Also, I cannot seem to figure out how to force the device to load the ralink firmware.
