Ubuntu USB Wireless Connection Help
I have recently purchased a Buffalo USB wireless adapter for my desktop computer; this wireless adapter runs on the RALINK rt2807 chip. I downloaded the linux driver for this chip and succesfully installed it. My computer recognises the chip as ra0 and i can happily scan for wireless networks but im stumped on how to connect to my prefered network.
i tried ifup ra0 but i get "Ignoring unknown interface ra0=ra0
Im a complete newbie to linux and have no idea how to connect. The command above i saw on some website. Any, even VERY simple suggestions welcome.
I use Ubuntu 8.10.
Thanks in advance.
