Linksys USB Wireless Adapter WUSB54G **Unique Problem**

Postby Rotting on Tue Feb 26, 2008 4:16 am

OK, so this is my 3rd day with Linux and I've read a lot about getting my WUSB54G up and running in Mint, but I seem to have a problem that is unique to every other problem with this adapter.

After a fresh install, Mint apparently recognizes my adapter perfectly, as I can see every wireless network in my neighborhood. When I select my wireless connection, it even asks for the WPA password, so it's communicating wirelessly with my router. However, it will never connect.

Can someone provide me with a direction to take with this problem? The wireless adapter is "working", but it's not WORKING.

Thanks for all of your help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This problem is so "uniqe" that it's asked over and over again. (for different cards not just wusb)
I thought WUSB54g was a Linux friendly card, but maybe not
I'll answer you together with this person
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
