help adapting a belkin usb hub {F5L009} to ubuntu linux

Hello all

The title pretty much says it all. I have a belkin usb network hub that is well integrated in win7 but since I ditched micro$haft for a much better option I was hoping to find someone who might know of drivers developed for this device. I am a novice at Linux but willing to learn. If no drivers are available how about some sort of modification to the device or firmware?

Thanks in advance

    The title doesn't say it all, at least to me.

    Adapting a usb hub?
  • A Belkin F5L009 is a USB hub that connects to your network router so that any network user can access the connected usb devices without physically connecting to them.

    ps....search engines are amazing things.....give them a try

    Just to explain: the op wasn't clear refering to his product as "usb hub". His product is a "*network* usb hub".

    There's a huge difference because "usb hub" should be within the kernel drivers while a "network usb hub" might not (which is actually the case here).

    If so go give that post a good read through, peek around through his code, and then you may want to contact him to say you're interested in development for the device as well and go from there.
