It looks like your card has been recognised - but may I suggest that you read this excellent tutorial on wireless networking in Linux? It would help you learn a lot more about the whole process.

But, if you cannot be bothered to do that, then get yourself a nifty little tool like wlassistant.

Did you run (as root) dhcpcd wlan0?

I have set it up as dhcp but in ubuntu linux you have to create a account and pw to finilize the installation. i ahve only one account and i am using it so it must be admin account.

No - the user created in Ubuntu is not the root account, because Ubuntu opts for a more secure method of administration - sudo. Therefore, run "sudo dhcpcd wlan0" (and type in your password after that), and it will run it as root(/admin).

I would suggest
Code:
man tar
But the easy answer is to add the j modifier to the tar command. like such:

Code:
tar -jxvf filename.tar.bz2
Peace,
JimBass
