That's the size of it. Now Windows Firewall has blocked the exe even tho' it's on the exception list. I'm half wondering if I wouldn't be better off buying 100' of Cat6 from Mwave to connect directly instead of mucking about with the dongle.

Can you connect if you disable the firewall? It''s really another issue, but if it turns out to be bad hardware (which I don't believe it is at this point) we could have the answer.

Good luck. ;-)

Wireless-n usb adapter won't connect in ubuntu 10.04

Right. I tried to connect directly to the D-Link router using its IP4 address. I received the message the site could not be found. I used network manager (I think. I'm new to wireless ubuntu networking) and manually set the computer's IP4, Gateway, and netmask addresses. Nothing. I connect the ethernet patch cable and I'm in. Network Manager show the wireless network, set as automatic log in, as never used even tho I've connected to it manually several times.

You shouldn't have to set the address, gateway, and such manually. Are you still having issues with the keyring?

Good luck. ;-)

Ubuntu 10.04 won't actually connect to wireless network

keyring okay. Still can't connect to local network or internet. Using direct ethernet over cat5e works. Network manager says wireless network (Auto Trail) has never been used.

Good luck. ;-)

Well, I got rid of the Zoom usb wireless adapter and tried another usb adapter that claimed to have the Linux drivers on disk. Of course, I need to figure out how to load them. Anyway, are there other settings that need to be made in Lucid to get a connection from the PC thru a router to the internet. I've run the commands, set the IP addresses, and tried what's been suggested. I checked with D-Link and they suggested turning off WEP/WPA and wireless security. (YIKES!!) I did notice that even tho both Network Manager & WICD say the adapter is working and connected, neither the router not the other PC's are seen.
So, what do the mavens of Linux suggest? Who knows. Maybe we'll un up with a sticky on how to set up a wireless usb adapter.

@ RealGomer are you pulling an IP? A working internet connection and local area network are two separate issues. If you're pulling an IP can you ping anything?

Good luck. ;-)

colorpurple21859 > Within /etc/resolv.conf is a folder /update-libc.d which contains a sole file avahi-daemon. This file reads:

#!/bin/sh
#
# If we have an unicast .local domain, we immediately disable avahi to avoid
# conflicts with the multicast IP4LL .local domain

if [ -x /usr/lib/avahi/avahi-daemon-check-dns.sh ]; then
exec /usr/lib/avahi/avahi-daemon-check-dns.sh
fi

Peacedog > config file says:

red@Homebrew:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

And it does not appear I am pulling an IP. If my router being flay or is it Lucid?

We need the output when Network Manager says the interface is working and connected.

Good luck. ;-)

Do I run your config file command or the resolv.conf folder?

red@Homebrew:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

red@Homebrew:~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 192.168.0.1
red@Homebrew:~$

I saw some others have had problems with the rt2780 drivers. Those suggested solutions point to driver conflicts which I thought I fixed with the blacklisting.
