    Asus usb n-13 wireless can't get it to work in ubuntu 11.04


    Hello,

    I bought this wireless usb stick and haven't been able to get it to work in ubuntu 11.04. I have this feeling that when I initially installed this system a couple of years ago I disabled wireless as an install option as I didn't think I'd ever need wireless on a desktop...well we moved and I now need wireless.
    So I'm wondering if its this line in NetworkManager.state
    WWANEnabled=false


    I followed the instructions on this site and here is the output of the shell script...

    You must have fixed it somewhere along the lines........the commands I gave you only woke the device and did a scan.
