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.

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?
