Today I installed Ubuntu 8.10 onto a PC which uses a USB DONGLE to connect to the wireless internet.
The make of this is MSI
The wireless network is recognised and has signal when I click on the networking icon on the top task bar but when I try connecting, the icon animates for a while then says the network has been disconnected (this is not true because I am using another laptop online at the same time).
The results of iwconfig are below:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
