Networking problem with Alfa AWUS036H
i am trying to connect my AWUS036H to my Compaq CQ60 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10.
when i check ifconfig, one minute my wlan1 is there, next minute its not,
if i try to do a sudo ifconfig wlan1 up i get,
wlan1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
and when i try it again it accepts the command no probs, i suspect this is because the device is in and out every few seconds.
when i checked rfkill, i found a hard block which i resolved with unblock all,
i have checked the unit under windows and it works just fine so i suspect it is a problem with my ubuntu,
any help would be greatly appreciated,
