I purchased an edimax 7381ug wireless adapter with set-up wizard. The set up wizard doesn't appear to follow the procedure and the adapter doesn't pick up anything.
In the most simple terms what do I need to do ?
You should start by explaining which box you have plugged the "7381ug" into. Win or linux?
If it's linux, then the "Setup wizard" is unlikely to work.
No matter, linux can still make it work (probably).
What, exactly is this "7381ug". Please post links to the manufacturer's website and a link to download the manual for it.
If it is plugged into your linux box, please post the outputs of:
(if it is a PCI card)
(if it plugs into USB)
from your linix box, as that'll help us determine just what sort of device it is, and hopefully, how to make it work for you.
