    Hrm. The rt2800usb module shouldn't have anything to do with the wireless mouse or keyboard.

    So you're not able to log in to your computer? Do you have a regular keyboard/mouse you can temporarily use?

    If you can sign on can you post the output of
    Code:
    dmesg
    What sort of encryption are you using on your network? I found a bug report on this problem, and people were having trouble with WPA/WAP2 encryption as well.

    Alright, more looking, and another bug report. At least one person with your card reported installing this updated firmware fixed his problem.

    Code:
    wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.37_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i linux-firmware_1.37_all.deb

    Thank you so much!

    (Sorry for time delay had to go feed the dog.)

    Turns out my mouse/keyboard issue was my impatience, come back 30mins after feeding dog and they work... no idea why.

    Also turns out the usb network adapter works too! For which I am sure I have you to thank.

    I'm quite new to linux, and bit of a beginner which programming but so far enjoying both and learning a great deal.

    Thanks again for all the support. I can send you the dmesg output if its still of any interest, but I suspect probably not??? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks again.

    Rachel

    Yup, if it's working no need for the dmesg output. Glad it got sorted out!
