reinstall fixed it


Hi

I think it got fixed in a kernel update or something because a fresh re-install of Ubuntu made the thing work. I didn't even have to unmount the strange little storage thing it contains and seems to think is the main reason for buying a usb-wireless dongle *sighs*. I had spent 40 on getting the Ubuntu repositories on Dvd's and 'borrowed' a wireless dongle that i found i could get to work on my regular machine so when i got to the boat i was completely ready but then it turned out to be sooo easy lol. Anyway the point is it worked exactly as it was supposed to with 'just' a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04.

Thanks for all your help folks
Regards from
Tom

You spent 40?
Anyway, it's working now. Linux "updates" almost every day.
Not like win.

Glad it's all working for you

Please mark this thread as "Solved". Thanks.

Lol, 40 isn't so bad compared to a Windows licence and it's good to give something back to the community. Hopefully i will find some use for the repos. Maybe help someone else to get ubuntu installed without good broadband access. Perhaps my dad might start using ubuntu a bit more and explore installing things from the Cd's rather than using up his 3Gb/month limit, who knows? As stated the 40 did ensure that i could get wireless working and it is working, so it's job is done

Thanks for the mention, I enjoy this, just wish I could be more exact.

Sometime the proprietary driver modules that come with the power pack do the job faster.

Cheers, Glenn
