    Try using the code tags provided by the forum software, I believe it will disable the smilies that are causing you this problem.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    This is your usb wireless card
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0846:9030 NetGear, Inc.
    Unfortunately, USB cards, especially newer ones, are one of the few things that frequently don't have good linux drivers available. In your case, there is a driver in development, called ath9k_htc. Normally, to install this would require building the newest drivers yourself.

    But handily, someone has provided this ath9k_htc installer program.

    Download the .deb file, double click to install. Run the program, reboot and cross your fingers.

    Thank you reed9. Your solution work like a Champ.

    However, now I have another issue. The wireless printer which is the same network IP wise, is said to be not on the network or could it mean the wireless adapter is not??. This wireless printer(HP Deskjet 3050 J610 series) is shared by other Windows devices around my house. Once my Linux PC is connected via wireless, shouldn't I be to connect and use the printer. thanks in advance. SYBU

    Have you gone to System>Administration>Printing and added the printer? AKAIK, it should work using the hplip drivers and the aforementioned should install everything.

    Reed9 Thanks. What does AKAIK mean? HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP) is already installed on my system. I attempted to add the printer and the system found my wireless printer and assigned: socket://192.168.1.105:9100. I tried to send a test page print job...It didn't print-No errors. . SYBU
