    Xubuntu haet Linksys Wireless-G


    Excuse the internet lingo, but my W-G's code is WUSB54G (ver. 4), and I happen to want to use it with my version of Xubuntu (Gutsy, I believe). But when I look throughout the internet, all I find is a jumbled mess of .arms here and there that I have to download, burn, and install on my mess of a 5-year-old Dell Dimension 2350.

    Is there anyone ... ANYONE who can just put what I need to do in a simple step-by-step format???

    I don't know what you're talking about with the ".arms" thing, but you should be able to get your wireless dongle working using a program called ndiswrapper. It allows you to install the Microsoft Windows drivers for the device and use them in Linux. There should be packages called "ndiswrapper" and "ndiswrapper-utils" on your install disc that are installable using "Synaptic Package Manager" in your System menu.

    Okay, I installed them. Some of the files couldn't be retrieved. Even so, it still won't work. What am I doing wrong?

    If the install didn't complete, I'm not surprised it's not working properly. Try uninstalling and reinstalling it first.
