It looks like we cross-posted.
Thank you for the additional information but please answer:
This seems to be a USB wireless adapter, please confirm this.
Do you have a link to the manufacturer's page?
1] What distro are you using (Eg "Ubuntu 10.04")
It looks like you are running ubuntu, but which version? My ubuntu kernel is 2.6.32-24-generic, yours is 2.6.32-21
-generic so have you applied the updates? System - Administration - Update Manager - Check - Install Updates.
2] What is the output of the following commands in a terminal:
4] Please also post the output of the command lspci
in a terminal (preferably in CODE tags, so it is easier to read, see above)
I ask these questions because I am not sure about what hardware you are using, or the version of linux you are using to handle your hardware. Without this information we cannot help you with the details.
On a positive slant, it looks like your wireless chipset is recognised as
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:6f:6d:fe:dd
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
But it is not being used because you have not configured it.
Meanwhile it looks like your ethernet interface is
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1b:fc:9b:89:b4
inet addr:192.168.2.8 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::21b:fcff:fe9b:89b4/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:55351 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:42888 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:65648227 (65.6 MB) TX bytes:5498545 (5.4 MB)
So it is being seen as eth0
You will run into problems if you have two internet connections (wired and wireless) active simultaneously.
So, please just answer all
my questions to you.
