Bluetooth USB Belkin F8T012xx1

I bought Bluetooth USB Belkin F8T012xx1 to be used in my desktop (using Debian). At first I thought that this thing doesn’t work, but apparently it is misdetected as pegasus Ethernet driver. I thought the best solution was to remove pegasus.ko (in /lib/modules), but everythime I upgraded the kernel, the file will show up again. I can see this happening using dmesg

pegasus: v0.6.14 (2006/09/27), Pegasus/Pegasus II USB Ethernet driver

The best solution is to add this line:

blacklist pegasus

    Did you do anything else of special mention?

    Do you use Debian packaged kernel or plain vanilla from
