i tried installing this device from rpmfusion and it looks like there isn't a rpm there yet for fedora 16. How can I get it to work?

This is a new install and is an amd64 processor.

Your Belkin uses the RTL8192SU chipset from Realtek which doesn't have any official driver releases from Fedora or RPM Fusion. There is a small workaround given in the below link -


Try and follow the procedure given in the above link, mostly it will solve your problem. The only reason I say mostly because the driver were tried with older kernel versions (Not 3.x.xx).

hi there, did the previous versions of Fedora had drivers for this card? maybe try ndiswrapper with win-drivers?
