Gabriel OrozcoSolution ArchitectCommented:
lspci is a command which inspects all pci devices, and show you which of them are present. maybe we can identify the correct device from there.

chipset is the brand or model of the chips that compose the particular card. in this case, the belkin one you are trying to make work.

main problem is because I cannot find the chipset for your belkin card. so... it will be difficult if you cannot obtain the chipset.


I ask you to run the command "lspci". maybe we can find the real model.

Regards, and keep up!
