802.11 wireless not working in usb 2.0 hub


have linksys wireless B, USB network adapter ( 802.11)
connection to another computer.

connected
mostly via my internal usb 1.1 connection.
(HP pavilion ze 4230 notebook, 1.8 GHZ, 40gb HDD, 512 ram. windows XP home sp2)

tried recently to connect adapter to a pcmcia usb 2.0 4 port adapter i have newly installed. (adapter works fiine for all other periphals)

however, i get a message that the (wireless/ adapter) hardware is not recognised.

is there a separate driver needed to use this wireless connectrion with a usb 2.0 port?

will admit 802.11 seems to work fine with my internal usb 1.1 port,
and was surprised when usb 2.0 could not recognise the wireless.


please advise.

hope i am making sense.



cordially,

robert the newby

What linux distribution are you using?

Have you ever tried Mepis or SuSe? There suppose to be great linux distributions for hardware support.

linux distribution = linux operating system

Linux is a kernel coded by Linux Torvards. There are many operating systems based on the Linux kernel. What sets them apart is what they have to offer and what management tools such as the package management system.

There are many linux distributions. The main ones are: Mandrake, Slackware, Gentoo, Debian, Redhat. There are literally many linux operating systems based on these 5 main operatings
For eg) Debian - Mepis and Ubuntu based on Debian
Redhat - Fedora, Mandrake, Redhat server enterprise BTW I do know about Fedora Core........
