    Greetings
    I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my second desktop system. I have a Linksys USB wireless adapter and unable to connect to my cable modem which is directly connected to my main desktop system. I ran into this problem previously, but I cannot recall the steps to get the 2nd desktop online. If my memory serves me, there was some conflict between WPA & WPA2 and somehow in Terminal I had to remove one or the other. Can you help? Thanks, Ronnie:)

    Does the connection work without any encryption or WEP (just for testing purposes)?

    The response is no to will it function without WEP security.

    Did Ubuntu recognize your USB adapter? Maybe you need to install a driver.

    I do not know how to accomplish that. The Software is written to be installed in Windows Vista (32 & 64), XP2K and XP64. So, I cannot install a driver. Thanks

    What's the exact name of your USB device? Have you tried to google for a Linux driver for it?
