Can't connect to internet with Linksys WUSB854GC
Hi, I just installed Ubuntu on my computer, and I'm having problems connecting to my house's wireless network. When I plug the network card in, I get a message saying that I'm disconnected from the network. So, I click on the network manager to try to connect, and under Wireless Networks, it says "disconnected", with no option to connect.
On the Ubuntu help file, it says to click on the network I want to connect to. When I do that, it doesn't do anything. The only thing that the network manager will let me do are "connect to a hidden wireless network" or "create new wireless network", and the fact that it can detect that there is a wireless network means that I don't want to do either of those things.
I've tried a number of things, but it just seems completely absurd that the help file would tell me to do something that the system won't let me do.
