WiFi dongle don't work


I have a WiFi dongle that said to support GNU/Linux, however no drivers were found on the CD, after hours of research i found this and installed the driver, I'm pretty sure my device is listed as supported, but the device is still not recognized, it is listed on lsusb command, but not recognized by any WiFi program like WiFi Radar and wireless-tools, also when i use the iwconfig command, this is what i see, i really need this wireless connection working, can you help, please?

Hi Evesys...

Welcome to the forum

Could you post the results from lsusb as it relates to your adapter? Also, what is the distribution of Linux you're using?

Regards...

Thumbs up

Try booting from a live CD then plug it in. I recently had a problem like this and booting from a live CD worked.

Just a tip. You should provide us with a bit more information next time. (name of dongle, distro...etc)
