Making this Belkin Wireless Notebook G pcmcia card working on my debian system was as easy as a walk in the park. The debian forum had a how-to which used the t2x00 Project. However, the source is now available in the latest kernel – actually from 2.6.24+. It may be somewhat “buggy”, but when I found the firmware source in the debian repository, everything worked smoothly for me.

sudo apt-get install firmware-ralink

A new interface should now be availabe in

ifconfig -a

The “buggy”-feature which I experienced is not a big deal. I did not get any results with pccardctl ident, but this is not a bid deal as long as pccardctl eject works fine.
