    Nope, I got rt5720 Ralink installed. Failed.
    Ndiswrapper failed.

    I seriously don't know what to do.
    But, I give it one more try.

    I will re-install Ubuntu Dapper Drake 6.06 again.
    Could you please give me a short howto.
    That will get my internet running.
    So a clean start again.
    And I will follow the howto you're going to create if you're creating one.


    Thanks,
    ~Remy

    Do you use AIM? Maybe we could set up a time to get it going.

    Talking

    I believe I read somewhere that the Ralink drivers are included in Ubuntu. Let's find out. From the command line as root:
    Code:
    locate rt2570.ko
    If an error, you might need to update your database...
    Code:
    updatedb
    If still no joy, you may need to create your database first...
    Code:
    updatedb -u
    Once database is created, run the first command again and see if you turn up with a rt2570.ko.

    I decided to go ahead and download the latest version of Ubutntu and the rt2570 drivers are indeed present! I'll take it to my machine at work today and see how you get the WUSB54G going. Can't remember if we checked for this... Yours is a version 4 isn't it? You might be able to find out if it uses Ralink by doing:
    Code:
    sbin lsusb
    I say 'might' because when I did that in Slackware, the device would show up but with no name. If it is a version 4, chances are it is Ralink so all the hard stuff about downloading sources and compiling the drivers won't be necessary, it's just a matter of configuring.

    Coming to you from Ubuntu using the WUSB54G v4 wireless adapter and know what the problem is:

    The Ubuntu wireless configuration utility just doesn't work with this device. Maybe it has issues with other wireless devices, I don't know. After configuring, it will not save changes or just locks down the machine cold, forcing a hard reboot.

    I configured /sbin/iwconfig and /sbin/ifconfig by hand and everything was connected but still no Internet. I entered my two DNS's in the DNS tab and now everything works.

    The DNS addresses can be found in the router, or in another computer's network settings on the same local area network. Another option is to call your ISP and ask. In the Ubuntu configuration utility there is a tab where you can add DNS addresses.

    You still haven't told me if your adapter is WUSB54G v4. I am suspicious because my Ubuntu immediately found mine as rausb0, not eth0, eth1 or eth2. Can you at least ask your parents if the router is set for 802.11b and 802.11g both? Your device is showing up as an 802.11b.
