trying to get wpa to work, now no wireless at all


Hello,
I have a router in this place with wpa security, and I am trying to get my ubuntu machine to work with it. After trying a tutorial, now the wireless device does not work. I get the following error when trying to use it: SIOCGIFFLAGS error: No such device.
Can someone tell me what to do with this, or how to reinstall the device so that it will at least work? I am new to linux, and i am not sure what the add/remove hardware equivilent is in linux. I cannot change the router from wpa to wep.

I posted this in the ubuntu thread first, but seeing how this is networking, I believe it belongs here.
Thank you very much for your time,
Tom

Which one?
Did you manage to roll through it w/o problems?

Does your system log show any related errors?
Are the modules loaded?
Is wpa_supplicant or equivalent WPA authorisation service configured and running?
What does "iwconfig <devicename>" say? (Devicename as in eth0, eth1, ath0 or whatever name it should have).

...and right you are. Next time though please ask a moderator to move your thread. Now you've made a duplicate thread which isn't very efficient and against the LQ Rules (it's OK: I already closed your other thread).
