So, I have a WUSB54GS v2.0 on my PC...
I've installed Ubuntu, got everything going, windows is online, but I need to get Ubuntu online. <_<
And there are no drivers made for Linux with that wireless adapter.
So, I need a guide to getting this thing to work on Linux.
I've googled it, and I've seen where people are getting it to work, but I don't understand how.
I've been searching for hours now on a guide to doing this, but so far, I've found nothing. :cry:

So if anyone could possibly link me, or give me a guide to getting this wireless USB adapter to work, that would be awsome. :)

That's why I asked you how you connect to the internet a while ago...

Either way, there's this guide you can try.
And hey, how did you get the dual-boot working? :)

Haha, after doing the system recovery, I just loaded the Live CD, and installed and it just worked by its self.
It installed, and restarted and it loaded up the GRUB menu as I jumped up and down. :lol:!

Anyways, thanks for the link. I'm gonna try it. :)

Glad to hear it worked, I guess something in your system prevented it from installing correctly the first time.
By the way, if that doesn't work, do you still have your Windows CD that came with the card?

Yeah, I do, and this guide is confusing to a noob linux user like me. :lol:

But yes, I have the CD that came with the wireless adapter.
It's not a wireless card though, it's one of those little USB adapters.
This is it

Ok, this will be a little complicated then.
1st off, do you have some sort of USB thumb drive or a CD you can burn files to? :huh:

A flash drive, USB stick? You can get a really cheap one for $10 at WalMart, because you need to somehow get the driver from Windows to Ubuntu... :blink:

Oh, well it's in a dual-boot, so when I'm in Ubuntu, I can go to the Windows partition, and find the file and drag it to Ubuntu.
I've done that with a few photo's and stuff already.

Oh right... you have FEISTY, which has the ability to read Window partitions... I was thinking of Edgy, sorry. Give me a few minutes and I'll tell you what you need to install and how.

Do you think that would work?

If not, keep on with what you're doing. :lol:

Sorry for the long delay - I got kicked off by my mom because she needed to use the PC.
You could try that, I don't have that in Edgy. If that doesn't work, I'll give you another option. :)

Haha, no problem.
My mom kicked me off for a few minutes aswell.

Anyways, yeah. I'll try that. Then if it doesn't work I'll post back here.

Nope, couldn't find the ndisgtk package anywhere. :(
So, I guess I need that other option. :lol:

Edit: Nvm, I saved it with IE.


Windows can't open this file...
It's a DEB file. :\

I gotta go somewhere with my dad.
I'll be back in an hour or so, and I'll try to do this.
But, when I ran that ndisgtk file on Ubuntu, it ran, and all this stuff, but it had some sort of error, and wouldn't let me install it.
The install button was disabled.

Anyways, we'll figure this out when I get back.
