I found this list of compatible USB wireless network adaptors: Linux USB Wireless Compatibility Adapter List
Listed here is the Belkin F5D8053.
I'm looking for a store to buy a suitable adaptor in locally and I can't find that particular adaptor - but I can see a Belkin F7D4101az. I think this is simply a newer model - but a Google search for "ubuntu belkin f7d4101az" brings no results - not even people trying to get it to work. Nothing. So I didn't want to purchase it without being sure.
There's really only one PC shop that sells this sort of stuff around here - so here's a list of all my available options: Criteria
I'd really like to get one today, because I have a lot of work to do and don't really want to have to wait a week for a new adaptor - I spent 6 or 7 hours last night trying to get my Dell 1450 to work with no luck.
Any help would be much appreciated.
