WiFi from T-Mobile HotSpot at Home Router
Can I get my wifi to work on ubuntu?

Based on my little experience, I would answer yes to that!
Have you tried configuring your drivers? I haven't tried Ubuntu 10.04 but if it would work just like 9.10 I did it in System > Administration > Hardware Drivers.
It might be helpful too if you can post the outputs asked in this sticky by waterhead.

The wifi is transmitting even when I am on ubuntu since it comes from a router that receives a broadband signal directly from the ISP (via coax) and before it goes to the computer.
I wonder if this is just an exercise in futility?

If you go to system/preferences/network connections/wireless, does it show the network you want?

From your system/preferences/network connections/wireless/ click add and make sure you have automatic set, if that does not work try specifying your SSID, wireless security, etc.

I have NO idea what it means. But it is output!
I have inserted my SSID per the instructions but cannot find a "ESSID" referenced anywhere.
Also, have inserted my WEP?WPA Key (26 character hex).

Thank you for the link. I'll pursue.
But I may be following a "if it aint broke don't fix it" path. The wifi seems to work fine with the set up I did in Windows - independant of the operating system I'm running at the time.
