You can run the lsusb command in a terminal to verify that the computer is seeing the USB card.

If you can't see it there, you can double-check with dmesg; dmesg provides many more lines of output, so a little scrolling will be necessary.

the adapter works as ubontu can find the wifi network it juts not like my correct parphase/password
