    Wireless Internet Not Working


    Just got Ubuntu installed and am new to Linux completely.

    I have been looking around and it seems that having a wireless USB network to connect to the internet is difficult on Ubuntu.
    Wondering if anyone could help me out with this or walk me through. Any information would be great.

    All I know is that it seems that my wireless linksys network card is a WUSB600N
    Anyone that has any commands they want me to put in my terminal I can tell you but from other forums I try to put many in and get no output simply because I believe I do not have the drivers but do not fully know how to even install these drivers in the terminal or am not doing something right.

    Thanks!

    Hello and welcome Herner! I am quite confident that you can make your wireless work.

    Please post all the commands asked here.

    The outputs will give us an idea of what's happening in your system and what needs to be done

    FYI USB sticks which use the b43 driver have been easier for me to get working than other brands, but if your equipment is listed as linux compatible, it should work.
