    I have a Belkin F5D7050B wireless adapter, I have downloaded the 10.3 driver for the device on belkins website since this was the latest version I saw. I see the device in the system profilier. But I cannot use the device it reverts to airport. How do I get it to work? Thanks

    Why do you need the wireless adapter? Is your internal AirPort card not working?
    And since the drivers are for Mac OS X 10.3, they are at least six years old and probably not being able to run on a three year old Mac.

    I would like to run wireshark and kismac, on my mac. But I can't threw the airport becuase my card won't go into promiscuous mode.

    Then you need to find a wireless card, that is compatible with an Intel Mac and has at least drivers for 10.5.

    I guess you already tried to install the 10.3 drivers?
