The OP replied off-list with his output from dmesg.  I'm sending it back to the
list in the off-chance that someone knows more about this wireless adapter.

Thanks for the reply, Damian.  Here is the dmesg:

As you can see, it does not recognize the card.  Indeed, when I looked 
at the list of wireless cards in the hardware list the Belkin wireless 
card was nowhere to be found.  It may be that there is no driver for 
this particular card, and that I may just have to get another card.  
What do you think?
