    Question wireless-B USB network adapter drivers!!!!


    I have three computers that connect to the internet using a Linksys router....I have Linux install in one of the computers with an USB wireless network adapter.....when I call linksys they told me that they donít had the software to make the adapter work in Linux....I donít want to connect the computer directly to the router with cable....is there any other way?!? Where can I get the drivers for the USB-adapter. I try to search but couldnít find the right one.
    Iím using Ubuntu. The access point is linksys wireless-B USB network adapter model no. wusb11v4.

    To determine which Linux drivers to use, we need to know the maker of the chipset in the modem. The same model modem can have different components, depending on when it was made.

    To find out the chipset maker, enter this in a terminal:
    Code:
