    WUSB54G Wireless-G Adapter Problems


    Hi,

    I've installed ndiswrapper and read the whole tutorial what to do before to get a driver working.

    Now I'm really stuck, i've been busy for over the past 2 to 3 weeks.
    I can't figure this out, when I try iwconfig it's saying: all 3 no wireless extensions.
    Even worse wlan0 isn't even in that list, while I installed that driver.
    It's shows that the driver is installed and is present.
    Oh I use Ubuntu 5.10

    If somebody could help me or give me advice what to do.
    I'd really appriciate it.


    Thanks,
    ~Remy

    With Dapper just released my advice is to upgrade, I have been using 6.06 for a couple of weeks now and it is a big improvement especially with regards to wifi

    Sorry for double posting.

    Well I installed Ubuntu 6.06 it's beautifull.
    Only I got a problem with getting my internet to work.

    On terminal I use: iwconfig
    I get a list of eth0 etc etc.
    eth2 is my USB adapter.

    Then when I try using: sudo iwconfig eth2 key XXXXXXXX
    I'll get the following error:
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A)
    SET failed on device eth2 ; Unknown error 524.

    I'm not sure what I did wrong.
    I also tried: s:XXXXXXX
    But result is the same.

    I got a WEP key not an WPA.

    Have you tried:
    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig eth2 enc xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xx

    All of the things you gave didn't work.

    But I found something else.
    I can easily enter my HEX WEP code on Ubuntu: 6.06.
    I will go to Networking, I see eth2 (wirelessLAN), eth0 (cableLAN)
    I disabled eth0 cause I use wirelessLAN.
    When I press WirelessLAN I can edit my configuration.
    Then I will enter my WEP, ESSID and configure it as DHCP.
    While doing that I press "ok", loading...
    When it's done loading I will press "ok" at the cards, loading...
    Then when it's done there I test my internet, www.google.nl <-- NOTHING.

    I tried iwconfig on terminal and it's saying Access Point: Unknown.
    But when I do: sudo iwconfig eth2 essid BasHardRoad
    Then I'll try iwconfig on terminal I get an address on Access Point.
    Also I tried to connect to internet but it failed.
    I tried HEX and ASCII code as keys but failed.
    It just seems that my USB adapter doesn't want to connect.

    If you got anymore suggestions please state them.


    Thanks,
    ~Remy

    I'm not sure how to bring up the network connection with the Ubuntu utility, but from the command line as root:
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig eth2 down
    ...just to start from 'scratch.' Now:
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig eth2 up
    ...to hopefully bring the connection up. Again:
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    ...and see if you have an ip for eth2. If no connection still, do:
    Code:
    dhclient eth2
    ...and check again. If it still won't come up, my first guess is there is a WEP miscommunication or the access point isn't "seeing" the essid you entered. I'd turn WEP completely off from the access point and disable it in Ubuntu so as to eliminate it as a a potential cause of your problems.

    That's what I get.
    I'm not sure what I have to do now.
    It doesn't want to connect or give out an IP.

    I got a Linksys Router btw.
