Wireless Adapter...Enable Wireless Ubuntu 11.10 not working


I just wish that vendors would support Linux! Anywho, I have a Linksys Wirless-G 2.4 GHz adapter. I'm running Linux Ubuntu 3.0.0-12 generic. I can't seem to get "Enable Wireless" within I would assume "network manager" which I would assume again would be the default manager. I ran a lsusb and it came up with the device and 1915:2234 as the ID. "I do NOT have internet access with this computer!" I do have another computer with Win 7 on it and a thumb drive. I do not know where to start getting this thing to work. Can someone please respond in a timely manner? My problem I need access to the internet.

linksys has poor support for linux. You can try to install drivers through ndiswrapper or try the updated version of ubuntu that may solve the problem.

1915:2234 is a Prism54 device

Enter the following as root
Code:
# modprobe -r p54usb && modprobe p54usb
Post the output.

It may simply be a matter of downloading the right firmware/installer. A lot of the Broadcom chipsets, for example, don't have firmware included for various reasons. If it's the B43 drivers you need, you can get that through apt if you know which one you need.
