I have installed Mint 14 Xfce on a Dell XPS 400. I am using a Belkin F5D8010 wireless card. I got the .inf file from the Belkin website and installed it using the graphical ndiswrapper tool. The computer sees my network, and I've entered the correct password, but it won't connect. It asks for the password repeatedly.

How can I connect to my network?

Here is the output from mintwifi:

Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd
